The Long Beach Bombers are an Amateur Athletic Union-sanctioned junior ice hockey team in Western Division of the Western States Hockey League (WSHL). The team plays their home games at the Glacial Garden Skating Arena in Lakewood, California, California.[1][2][3]

HistoryEdit

Before moving to Tier III Junior A hockey, the Bombers competed in Junior B hockey from 1994 until 2007 when the team and WSHL were upgraded to Tier III Jr. A status. In 2011, the league left USA Hockey sanctioning and joined the Amateur Athletic Union and in 2012, the AAU-sanctioned United Hockey Union. The Bombers are currently considered Tier II under the AAU sanctioning.

The team was a founding member of the WSHL in 1994 as the Anaheim Jr. Ducks and won the first two Thorne Cup Championships of the league's existence. The franchise then changed their name to the Southern California Jr. Bombers in the 1996 offseason, became the Bay City Bombers in 2006, and then revised their name once more becoming the Long Beach Bombers in 2010.

The team was renamed after being sold during the 2019 off-season. The team adopted the Winnipeg Jets (1972-1996) logo with a slight modification to the city name on the design.

The Jets are currently the only founding franchise of the WSHL still playing in the league.
