The Jersey Shore Wildcats are a Tier III Junior "A" ice hockey team from Wall Township, New Jersey. They are a member of the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU)-sanctioned Northern States Junior Hockey League (NSHL).


The team was founded in 2009 as the Trenton Habs and joined the International Junior Hockey League (IJHL) for the 2008-2009 season as an associate member, playing a season of exhibition games against IJHL teams as well as participating in league showcase and national championship tournament. The team joined the IJHL as a full member for the 2010-11 season in the IJHL's Jr. Super Elite League.[1] The Habs finished the 2009-10 season winning the IJHL Super Elite National Championship.[2] In the summer of 2012, the IJHL folded causing the Habs and many former teams of the IJHL Super Elite Division to form the Northern States Junior Hockey League under the AAU.[3][4]

In May 2013, it was announced that the organization joined forces with the Wichita Falls Wildcats of the North American Hockey League to give players more opportunities and exposure and renamed the team the Jersey Shore Wildcats.[5]
