Welcome to the MAINE Junior Black Bears!
Our mission: The Maine Junior Black Bears are committed to providing a high-quality competitive Tier II, III and IV hockey program to our youth while focusing on instilling the values of respect, sportsmanship, self-esteem, teamwork, discipline, and responsibility in its players. The MJBB will provide a positive environment on and off the ice, to challenge its players to grow to their fullest potential in all aspects of the game and as individuals. Our program will foster an appreciation for youth hockey among the Greater Bangor Area children, along with life-long lessons that include discipline, competitive spirit, team play, an appreciation for rules, safety, and a love of the game!
Do you have some outgrown, slightly used hockey gear you would like to sell, or give away? Check out our Hockey Closet and help get that hockey gear to a good home!

Initial positions were assigned at the last MJBB meeting, and those assignments have been posted on the Board page.
