Jack's Pledge

Please join us in supporting one of our Minnesota Hockey families

NMYHA is honored to collaborate with Minneapolis Hockey in honoring “Jacks Pledge: Playing Hockey The Right Way."
Endorsed by the Jablonski family, and Jack himself, Jacks Pledge is a player - and coach - driven program designed to emphasize playing hockey the right way by players and coaches pledging to minimize violence and enhance safety in hockey. By taking Jack's Pledge, players and coaches commit to knowing the rules of hockey and playing by a strict interpretation of the rules. Players pledge to do their best to avoid penalties and situations that lead to dangerous play and unsafe situations. Coaches commit to teaching the rules of hockey, promoting strategies that minimize risk to ALL players and emphasizing clean play and a safe environment.
Minneapolis Hockey will donate "Jack Jablonski #13 In Our Hearts" helmet stickers to all teams who show their support for playing hockey the right way through Jack's Pledge. We will be receiving these stickers shortly for all NMYHA teams.
Chris Magner has graciously donated a banner for NMYHA to display at BPCAC. This will
be present at this weekend’s Pirate Tournament. There will be T-shirts for sale (courtesy
of Dave’s Sports Shop Fridley) and “Jabby13, Stay Strong” bracelets (courtesy of BSM Girls Hockey Team). All proceeds will go directly to the Jack Jablonski fund.
Individual NMYHA team managers can contact Kevin “Reggie” Redding at 612-978-1630 to place orders for their team, family and friends.

A note from D3

D3 wants everyone to know they are making a strong effort to reduce head contact (and hopefully the prevalence of concussions).



North Metro Youth Hockey Association

Hockey is not an end. It is a means to an end. There is nothing inherently good about scoring, forechecking, backchecking, or winning. It is only good if it promotes education and learning. Those that come away with a higher work ethic, honesty, and integrity are the true winners. Hockey does not build character, rather it reveals it. It's these values that do more than anything else we develop that will be the true measure of how successful the NMYHA is.
