Johnny's Junior Jets


Ages 4 -8



Johnny's Junior Jets is held the Annex rink at our 2550 W Madison St facility. The Annex rink is attached to the west wall of Johnny’s IceHouse West and can be entered from the garage, the rink level, and from Madison Street.


Skates can be laced up in the lobby as well as the locker room at the northeast corner of the rink. Parents can observe from the bleachers on our mezzanine level overlooking the ice.


Junior Jets is the next step after successfully completing Beginner Learn to Skate and is for kids who intend to play hockey. Some children may be asked to complete Learn to Skate - Intermediate before advancing to our Junior Jets program.


Parents of children in Learn to Skate will be notified by the Coach if your child is ready to move up to Junior Jets. There are three levels of Junior Jets: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced, which focus on hockey skating and early hockey fundamentals to get your child ready for team play.

"We are so happy our son is able to continue on with hockey and Johnny's is doing such a good job keeping everyone safe." -Deni S.

"My son has been skating at Johnny's since he was four years old. He'll be 10 next week so he's been with you for six years. Friday was a sad day for my wife and I as it was the last day we drove him to and from Johnny's since we are moving to Montana at the end of the month. So I wanted to let you know how awesome your rinks and your teachers/coaches are... In today's world its rare to find a company that provides true customer service, but more so it's rare to see young people like your coaches act outside of their own self-interest." -Jeff S.

"Just want you to know that the experience for only one day that my husband had at Johnny's Ice House West left him speechless. He can not stop talking about how nice, friendly and helpful everyone was. Coaches & Parents helped with our son equipment and all the tips he was getting!  Thank you from the Robles family."
