COMMUNITYOUTREACH

We partner with the community to reach kids who otherwise wouldn’t have the chance to
learn how to skate and play hockey

A TEAM APPROACH

We can only provide quality ice time and equipment to kids throughout the Chicago community because of support from local and national organizations, businesses and community leaders.

Community leaders and programs help us promote awareness to kids throughout Chicago. A special thanks to  Alderman Walter Burnett, Jr., his staff, and the Gary Comer Youth Center, After School Matters and Bright Star Community Outreach for the continued support.

We receive discounted equipment from Reebok and Bauer through Good Sports, Inc. and programs of the National Hockey League.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Building our program involves more than just ice time. We participate in fundraisers throughout the year and invite our kids to experience these special events.
