Through exceptional coaching and player development across upcoming seasons, we plan to build out the program and expand our team ages to span all levels Rec through A, B & C. However, the focus for the 2021/22 season will be an all inclusive, all-abilities program that ensures that every player has the chance to enjoy the game and realize their potential.

Youth hockey couldn’t happen without the parents and community volunteers that help with all facets of the game. We have opportunities for volunteer coaches, team managers, score keepers, clock managers and penalty box managers. A great way to help out and build friendships and community that will last a lifetime.
