The Jamaica men's national ice hockey team is the national ice hockey team of Jamaica. On 18 May 2012, they were added as associate members by the IIHF. They are the first Caribbean nations to do this. In order to compete in the winter Olympics, they must have full inclusion from the IIHF, which requires the nation to have one ice rink and a development program.
Recently they had held try outs in Canada to form a national ice hockey team that can compete in the next Winter Olympics. Due to the tryouts being held in Canada, some accused the team of attempting to "poach" from Canadian talent. Former NHL player Graeme Townshend is leading the tryouts in order to construct the national team.
