We are busy planning for the 2023/2024 season and are excited for the many opportunities our athletes will have to compete, develop their skills, and have fun with friends.

If you answered “yes”, then you are in the right place. Experienced or not, with the help of USA Hockey, we will get you into the right situation to insure personal and team success. Positions include Head and Assistant Coaches as well as Practice Coaches on teams ranging from 8U to 18U. AA options will be available. Join us and share your knowledge and passion.

Take care and let me know if you have any questions.
