The Chicago Jets Hockey Club will be unveiling new uniforms this fall. Each player Squirt through U16 will receive three jerseys (Home White, Away Blue, and Alternate Red) included in their fall registration and fees. Navy Helmets, Navy Gloves and Navy Pants or Navy covers will be used by all players this fall season and will be replacing the current Royal Blue Helmut/Gloves and Red pants. MITE AND ADM CHICAGO SPITFIRES JERSEYS WILL REMAIN THE SAME AS LAST SEASON. (If new items are to be purchased for players at the Mite/ADM Level, it is highly suggested that Navy Blue pants, Helmut and Gloves be purchased, otherwise current equipment colors owned by returning players can be used).
The Jets uniform policy is in place to maintain a consistent appearance of players that reflects solidarity and pride for the organization.
