Elmira Jr. Enforcers Junior Hockey Program


For Immediate Release!

The Rochester Coalition is proud to announce a new partnership with the Elmira Jr. Enforcers Junior Hockey program. This affiliation will provide a tremendous opportunity for Roco players looking for another avenue to continue their hockey careers in hopes of playing college hockey!

“We are very excited to establish this partnership with ROCO,” said Elmira President Tim
Kolpien. “This will help provide more local opportunities for high level New York hockey players as our organizations work together.”


Founded in 2020, the Elmira Jr. Enforcers have completed two seasons playing in the USPHL Premier
League. The organization has found immediate success – promoting nearly 20 players to college hockey and higher levels of junior hockey. Jr. Enforcers alumni are in NCAA D-1, NCAA D-3, NAHL, USHL, NCDC, and the ACHA! Our players’ typical day includes 2 ice sessions, video sessions, schoolwork, and workout with a dedicated trainer in a state-of-the-art gym. Our players live in a local college dorm and with billet families. Both the college and the billet families received high grades in our post-season player surveys. New this year the club has expanded and is adding a USPHL Elite level team for the upcoming 2022-23 season. The additional team adds to a solid foundation for success for the organization as we enter our third season primed for success both on and off the ice!

At Roco, one of our primary goals is to help all of our players reach the highest level of hockey possible for them. Many of our players have a goal of playing college hockey. The Roco Midget program, with the support of Evolve Hockey, has placed over 91 players at 20 plus New England Prep Schools and Hockey Academies in 6 years. The Roco Midget program has had over 15 Division 1 commits come through the program in those 6 seasons. Roco will of course continue to build and foster those partnerships.

“This new partnership with the Elmira Jr Enforcers will provide another opportunity for Roco
players looking to advance their hockey careers. It will also provide additional exposure opportunities for the Elmira players. We are thrilled that we are able to form this partnership with the Jr Enforcers,” said Rochester Youth Hockey President David Waldo.

Since its formation, the Rochester Coalition has become the area’s premier player development program. The Coalition began as a working relationship between Tier I Rochester Youth Hockey and the Tier II Rochester Grizzlies Hockey Associations.
