The Top Gun U16 elite training program is designed for the committed hockey player looking to improve their game and take it to next level. Members of our staff individually have 15, 20, and 25 years of experience coaching players with the goal of developing players and bringing out their very best. They have direct ties to USHL, NAHL, and have promoted Tier II players into both leagues. The curriculum is designed to maximize the skill set and thought process of each player in an environment that teaches that hard work and attention to detail will breed success. This unique program will be in a 4 part plan:
This program will launch the Chicago Jets U16 program for the fall of 2017. The goal is to put players on a "Runway For Success" at the Tier 2 level and will provide them opportunities to pursue their dreams of playing hockey after high school. The 2017-18 Chicago Jets U16 team will play out of Johnny's West Ice Arena with an on site state-of-the-art fitness center for the Chicago Jets players and dedicated pro-style locker rooms for the U16 team.
