As many of you know, the Watertown Municipal Arena is in the middle of a major expansion and reconstruction project that started in the Spring 2015. We are all very excited with the upgrade to our home rink, however the start of the 2015-2016 Season will have us operating out of our neighboring rinks until construction is completed. The Board of Directors recognizes the challenges that this inconvenience may have on our members. As such, there will be no fundraising fee associated with registrations; and additional adjustments have been made to team registration fees.
To ensure proper insurance coverage, all players must register with USA Hockey, register with Watertown Hockey Association, and complete all associated forms prior to participating in on-ice practices. This includes both August and September ice activities. Registration link for all Jefferson Jaguar Teams now available!
Please visit the Registration Page for more information.

Special Needs and Learn to Skate Programs

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Association would like to offer our apologies that we are not able to offer these programs at this time.  We are working to get both programs back as soon as possible.  We anticipate the possibility of being online as early as late January to early February of 2016, subject to ice availability.  Stay tuned to the website for updates throughout the renovation project.


As you can imagine, it takes a tremendous amount of effort and volunteerism to maintain a quality youth hockey program. Our coaches work tirelessly all season teaching the sport of hockey, but there is also considerable off-ice work that needs to be accomplished. The Association invites you to consider one of the following Director positions for the upcoming 2015-2016 Season:

  • Snowbelt League Representative
  • Tournament Director

Each position holds a one year term; and expectations can be found in the By-Laws located on the Board of Directors tab. This can be a very rewarding experience in contributing to the growth of the youth in our community. If you are interested or have questions, please contact Anthony Netto ( Thank you for your consideration.

Since its organization in 1958, the Watertown Skating and Hockey Association, Inc., has remained true to its original purpose of developing “the health and cultural growth of youth in the community” through participation in athletics.  Over the past 50 years the Association’s volunteers have coached, trained and mentored thousands of children in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties.  The Association has skaters on the ice ranging in age from 3 to 18 years old.  Our teams compete throughout New York and Canada and we play host to several hockey tournaments in Watertown each season.  The Association is the local affiliated organization of USA Hockey, Inc., the national governing body for the sport of hockey in the United States.  We take pride in the strict standards of coach education, qualifications and screening required by USA Hockey.  The quality and dedication of our coaches and volunteer management and staff is directly reflected the years of loyalty of our many skaters and parents.  Besides training athletic skill and teaching a sport, our coaches strive to develop character, sportsmanship, and overall physical fitness.  Our mission is to provide each child with the opportunity to grow socially, learn mental and physical discipline and experience the power of teamwork and collective competitiveness.  The Association looks forward to another 50 years of developing civic minded, responsible citizens through youth sport.
