Junior Gold Hockey Program (2017-18)

Saint Thomas Academy fully supports the Junior Gold Hockey Program and encourages interested student players to participate in this high school level competitive league.

There are two teams:  Junior Gold (Seniors and Juniors), and Junior Gold 16 (Sophomores and Freshmen).  The teams will be on the ice 3-4 times per week including practices and games.

The teams play 24 league games, 2 tournaments, district play downs and possibly the state tournament. The Junior Gold team will participate in the Pro Stock High School Prep Invitational in Chicago in early December.

Junior Gold Wins State!

Congratulations to our STATE CHAMPION Junior Gold B team!  The Cadets skated to a decisive 5-1 victory over Edina on Sunday, completing a fantastic season with a 29-4 record and earning the top spot in the state.  #STAteChamps



Junior Gold Apparel
Junior Gold Hockey Apparel is available at http://www.isaksenpromotions.com/cadets/.  The online store will be open until Wednesday, November 29th at Noon. There will be NO refunds given on the orders. We need to close the window for ordering quickly as it could take three weeks to receive the items.

Association Waivers

The Junior Gold Hockey Program plays under Sibley Area Youth Hockey Association (SAYHA) in District 8. If SAYHA is not your home association you will need to obtain a one-time waiver from your home association to SAYHA.  Please contact your association president to obtain a School Attendance Waiver, which requires signatures from your association president and district director, if you do not reside in District 8.

Player Conduct

Players are expected to comply with the STA Student Handbook.  Tardiness, unexcused absence,  academic performance and chemical use will affect practice and playing time. Please see the Saint Thomas Academy Student Handbook for specific information.

Estimated Fees

Estimated fees for the season are $1,400 per player for Junior Gold, and $1,100 per player for Junior Gold 16.  

There is $350 per player deposit for the team jerseys which will be returned after the player turns in his jersey at the end of the season.

STA Kindness Funds may be available by contacting STA Athletic Director Bob Slater at bslater@cadets.com.

Parent Support

The Junior Gold Hockey Program relies on the volunteer efforts of the parents.  Please consider volunteering for positions your team will need: team manager, clock, score sheet, penalty box, etc.
