Our Story

Founded in 2020, the Jets Elite are based out of SportsCare Arena and provide a solution for players and families alike looking for a quality program at a reasonable price. Too many programs are overcharging players in New Jersey and not delivering a quality product.  As a result, Black Bear Sports Group founded the Jets Elite after acquiring SportsCare in 2019.


Jets Elite
The Jets Elite are a unique youth hockey concept based on maximizing player ice time, exposure to elite competition playing a AAA schedule and offering the most practice ice in the region. Jets teams have the unique opportunity to practice three times per week and only play competitive, hand-picked games (estimated total ice time is 200+ hours). Teams play a thoughtfully crafted schedule consisting of showcases and competitive games that will maximize opportunities for player development and minimize redundant, lop-sided games and associated travel. Our Elite teams play a minimum of 45 games throughout the season and experience rigorous skills and conditioning training on bye weekends, in addition to the three weeknight practices per week. We are a model based on player development and core team sports values. Our programs are professionally run by full-time employees and our facilities are exceptional. Join us as we change the culture of elite hockey in northern New Jersey.


Black Bear Sports Group (BBSG) was founded in 2015 to purchase aging ice rinks and bring much-needed capital to rehabilitate arenas and replace mechanical equipment. As a result, hockey and ice skating thrive in our rinks which are safe and fun environments for the local communities we serve.
