Ontario, CA – The Ontario Reign, proud American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL), alongside the Hope Reigns Foundation and Wildcats Hockey have announced the formation of the Junior Reign youth hockey program.
“We are extremely excited to partner with the Ontario Reign,” Junior Reign Hockey Club President Ben Frank said. “We have a belief system that together, we can make youth hockey a life-changing experience. We believe we have the responsibility to harness the power of youth sports to build better people, stronger families and a closer world. Joining the Reign helps us expand that mission.”
The Junior Reign offers organized programs at Riverside Icetown and Carlsbad Icetown for all ages and abilities and is recognized by USA Hockey as one of only 21 "Model Associations" nationwide, for its commitment to the highest standards for youth hockey player development as outlined by USA Hockey's American Development Model (ADM). In addition, they are a proud partner of the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) whose motto is "better athletes, better people".
“The Wildcats’ leadership and commitment to positive youth sport experiences and long-term athlete development is in perfect alignment with our mission of growing the game,” Kings President of Minor League Affiliates Darren Abbott added. “We are looking forward to working with their staff and seeing what the Junior Reign can accomplish in the years to come.”
Age groups range from Mite (8-under) to Midget (18-under) with competition levels from A/B to high-performance AA and AAA Tier hockey based on USA Hockey National Development Team programing. For more information and to contact a coach, visit JrReign.com.
