Support the RAINE Foundation this Holiday Season!

The Jersey Shore Wildcats Bantam Minors support the RAINE foundation and its mission to positively impact the Bayshore Community – by providing food, clothing, assistance during the holidays, and various other necessities for families in crisis.

‚ÄčThe team (and their supportive sisters) collected non-perishable food items throughout the month of November and sorted and packed Thanksgiving dinner gift baskets for over 200 needy families, and is featured prominently in a Hazletonian newspaper article.

Not to be outdone at Thanksgiving, the team adopted a family for the holiday and collected donations, shopped for gifts, and gathered at the rink on December 14th to wrap the gifts for the family.    Volunteer Santa’s will deliver the presents later this week.

We are proud of these kids and taking the initiative to give back to those less fortunate!

Representing the Atlantic District

Ben Weston Named USA Hockey Atlantic District Assistant Coach for Austrian Federation Tournament

Jersey Shore Wildcats Hockey Director Ben Weston was selected to represent USA Hockey and the Atlantic District in the 2019 international exchange trip to the Austrian Federation. 

Coach Weston is one of seven staff coaches selected to coach and work with the Atlantic District’s top 2005-born players as they embark on a two part trip to Villach, Austria beginning on August 4 and concluding on August 11

The American born players will join teams from Austria and the Ukraine to take part in a development camp during the first half of the week. As the week winds down the teams will compete in an International Olympic Committee (IOC) and International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) sanctioned tournament style event where teams will compete for medals. 

Coaches and players will be exposed to new teachings, player development models, and new and useful ways to work with players within our community and clubs. 

We are very proud of our hockey director and his continued work with USA hockey and the dedication he has made to the Wildcats.
