The Fresno Junior Hockey Club, (FJHC), is a non-profit organization formed over thirty years ago in the interest of providing youth of the community with the opportunity to play competitive
ice hockey. Our players come from all over the Central Valley, the Central Coast and the Bay Area. We compete in the NorCal division of USA Hockey; the official amateur hockey
association of the U.S.A., which includes all levels from beginners to the U.S. Olympic team. Gateway Ice Center is the home rink to the FJHC, and all of their home games are played there.
The FJHC is governed by an elected board of volunteer directors who have enlisted certified, trained coaches from among the ranks of former Fresno Falcons, college and NHL players.
Our goal is to help players progress as far as their level of dedication will allow.
New players begin with the Learn-To-Play program to develop fundamental skating, stick handling, passing and shooting skills. Once players have achieved a minimum level of abilities,
they can move into our In-House program, which includes weekly practices and games. Dedicated players who seek a higher level of competition can then move into our Travel program,
which allows players to compete in regular season games throughout northern California. Teams that finish among the top 2 in each A and B division of NorCal, from the Squirts, age 10
and under, through Midgets, age 16-18, are then eligible to compete in the California Amateur Hockey Associations (CAHA) State Championships. We have also competed at the Midget
age group in the South West Youth Hockey League, which competed in tournaments throughout the western United States.
