Friends of the AJH Society
The Friends are a small but active group of people from across the province of Alberta, some of whom were formerly involved with junior hockey in Alberta, or some with no connections to junior hockey, but all with the desire to assist young athletes in their pursuit of a higher education. The main purpose of the society is to raise funds and to assist with the promotion of junior age hockey players to be able to continue to play hockey at a high competetive level, yet to be able to continue in their goal to a higher education, and to assist the athlete financially in this pusuit.
