About The Winnipeg Jets Alumni

Winnipeg Jets Alumni photo montageWhen the Winnipeg Jets left town in 1996, the Winnipeg Jets Alumni never left.  And now that the Winnipeg Jets are back, the Winnipeg Jets Alumni is better than ever.

The Winnipeg Jets Alumni includes not only former Winnipeg Jets, but also resident Manitobans who have played professional hockey.

Formed in 1988, the Winnipeg Jets Alumni has been part of Manitoba's hockey fabric for more than two decades. During that span, alumni members from the Jets' WHA and NHL teams - many of them native Manitobans (as well as members who've played professional hockey for other NHL, WHA or AHL organizations in North America and teams in Europe) - have acted as passionate ambassadors for the game of hockey.

The Winnipeg Jets Alumni is a non-profit organization, whose purpose is to promote the benefits of hockey for kids and fans of all ages. The Winnipeg Jets Alumni brings together former Winnipeg Jets players from the World Hockey Association (WHA) and National Hockey League (NHL) ... along with former professional players who are resident Manitobans ... to support and participate in charitable events, youth hockey participation, and promotion of the game of hockey.

As the Winnipeg Jets Alumni enters its third decade of existence, our commitment to growing the game in Manitoba has become even stronger. We award two high school hockey scholarships valued at $1,000 each per year. In fact, our goal in that area is to increase our contribution to an even greater annual amount (stay tuned for future news!).

More than that, the Alumni intends to increase our role as ambassadors for hockey in Manitoba, with the goal of playing 10 exhbition hockey games over the winter months. So if you would like to arrange a charity game with our team (hockey or baseball), have some of our members take part in events such as golf tournaments, or would like to enlist one or more of our members as a guest speaker at an event or guest instructor at a hockey school ... please, contact us.
