Our Bantam 2 team was in Peoria On Saturday and drove by the town that was destroyed the next day in Sunday's storms. Angie Russell, the Peoria Bantam 2 Team Manager sent this message in the hopes of reaching out to our community to help the folks in the town of Washington, Illinois.
"By Now you have probably heard of the devastating storms that hit the Peoria area on Sunday. The hardest hit area, Washington, IL is just a few miles east of the Owens Center rink in Peoria. PYHA is coordinating efforts to help the hockey families that were affected by the storm. Some of them completely lost their homes.

Please plan to stick around for a bit after practice to celebrate holiday season and thank coaches for their efforts thus far this season. Will gather in locker room after practice.
The Chicago Jets Hockey Club is fortunate to have a great relationship with Johnny’s Ice House. This relationship has allowed the Club to keep ice costs low for many years. These savings have benefited the Club in many ways, including using funds to attract top coaching staff and covering the cost of two tournament fees per team.
These are exciting times to be part of the Chicago Jets Hockey Club and I am eager to begin the upcoming season. I want to thank the entire Chicago Jets community that has helped make our club a success. Without the hard work of everyone who volunteers their time and energy and the players who strive to do their best, the Club’s accomplishments would not have been possible.
As always, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me at (773) 562-9519.
