Playing the game is more than just the score, it’s about getting kids active and teaching them new things - that's what we're all about! Participation in a team sport lays the foundation for community, teamwork and collaboration - values that your child will use throughout their lifetime. Your player and their experience with us matters most.
“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times, I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed” (Michael Jordan).

We support our players ensuring that they have a safe place to play. Our programs are for everyone - no child will ever be excluded or cut from a team. Every child will play every game.
One game a week at one area and consistent times - No traveling. Consistent times allow you to plan the rest of your life.
We believe in working together, not only while playing the game but also with parents, our staff and volunteers. We believe in adhering to a Code of Conduct for both players and their parents that encourages respect for each other as well as officials. We believe that playing the game is only part of why people play.
The value of teamwork, fair play, and good sportsmanship goes well beyond the game. We believe in a positive playing environment, one where teams respect and support each other on and off the rink. We believe in working together to achieve success.
EXTRA VALUE: Jesse’s on-site restaurant! Watch the game from the restaurant above while you enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner.
