Please come out and join the most successful hockey program in the Valley! More information about player registration, season dates, etc will be posted soon!

Covid-19 Precautions


   With our most recent tournaments coming to a close and many others cancelled, it is more important than ever to self monitor ourselves and our families so we can prevent the spread of Covid-19. As many medical professionals have recommended in recent days, if you start to feel ill, please stay at home. If your symptoms give you concern that you may have contracted CV19, please self isolate. If you need to seek medical attention, please call ahead to your providers and give them enough time to take the appropriate precautions prior to receiving you at their facility. If you do test positive, please contact those that you have been in close proximity to so they can self isolate and keep an eye on their condition.

   Until further notice, no group events and no end of season team events are to take place. It is imperative that we maximize our social distancing as best as humanly possible. Thank you for your help in keeping this virus under control and we look forward to seeing everyones smiling faces back on the ice!
