Jamaican Olympic Ice Hockey Federation is about bringing the sport of ice hockey to the country of Jamaica. 

As the earlier Jamaicans (the Maroons), who played in the Colored Hockey League in Nova Scotia had the love of the game, there are more players and future players who are ready to get on the ice.
