San Juan Capistrano, CA May 6, 2013 – JSerra Catholic High School is proud to announce the addition of a PREP Level hockey team for the 2013-2014 season. With the continued growth of hockey in California and the need for hockey players to implement an educational aspect to their goals of playing at the next level, JSerra Hockey is very excited to offer this program to its students.
“JSerra has been a leader in providing school-based athletic opportunities for hockey players,” said Head Prep Coach Mike Perkins. “We are all very excited to add this opportunity to our programming.”
The team is targeting top student/athletes whose goals are to continue playing hockey at the junior, collegiate and professional level. The 2013-14 JSerra PREP Season will play a rigorous schedule, which will include four practices a week, on campus weight training and a 55-60 game schedule. All players will attend JSerra High School.
The PREP team will also feature a 15-game schedule with the Canadian Sport School Hockey League (CSSHL), Western Canada’s Top Prep level hockey league that includes premier hockey programs Banff Academy, Pursuit of Excellence Prep, Okanagan Hockey Academy and Edge Prep. In addition, the 2013-14 season will include four AAA/Prep Showcase tournaments scouted by tier 1 & 2 junior leagues, NCAA Division I & III programs.
Mike Perkins, who has been the Hockey Director at JSerra for two years, will take on the duties as head coach of the Prep team. Perkins brings 12+ years of coaching experience to the Prep team.
