Our goals are to take advantage of our playing and coaching experience and to pass on our lessons in hockey and life to our students. We want to maintain a standard that is unmatched by any other program world wide in quality and excellence.
Our staff of professional instructors is unparalleled in instruction and experience. We select only those instructors with a passion for the game and for teaching, while maintaining the highest standards as role models for our younger players.

This is accomplished by placing emphasis and refinement on the importance of individual skills, fitness and good character. Teaching player respect and the importance of 'Every Shift / Every Shot' mentality to all players that step on the ice.
