JERSEY CITY, NJ - Members of the Jersey City Capitals Hockey Organization’s U16 team raised money to serve first responders during the COVID-19 pandemic. The teams, masks on for safety, recently made visits to the Jersey City Fire Department’s Rescue 1 as well as the Jersey City Police West and South districts just to say “thanks.”
The team also plans to travel to the Kearny Fire Department, Clifton Fire Department, Woodbridge Fire Department and Jersey City’s Engine 5 over the next week.
For more than 30 years the Jersey City Capitals youth hockey program has called the Charlie Heger Ice Rink at Pershing Field their home. The rink is named after one of the founding fathers of the program.
In 2018, the program’s 11 and under Squirt Team won the New Jersey Youth Hockey League state championship. They previously won back to back titles in 2009 and 2010.
