Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote the growth of youth hockey in Northeast Kansas and provide the best possible experience for all participants in order to develop and strengthen their character.

Core Values

Sportsmanship – Foremost of all values is to learn a sense of fair play.  Become humble in victory, gracious in defeat.  We will foster a friendship with teammates and opponents alike.

Respect for the Individual – Treat all others as you expect to be treated.

Integrity – We seek to foster honesty and fair play beyond mere strict interpretation of the rules and regulations of the game.

Pursuit of Excellence at the Individual, Team and Organizational Levels – Each member of the organization, whether player, volunteer or staff, should seek to perform each aspect of the game to the highest level of his or her ability.

Enjoyment – It is important for the hockey experience to be fun, satisfying and rewarding for all participants.

Loyalty – We aspire to teach loyalty to the ideals and fellow members of the sport of hockey.

Teamwork – We value the strength of learning to work together.  The use of teamwork is reinforced and rewarded by success in the hockey experience.
