Our charter is to provide youth hockey opportunities for all ability levels in the Eagle County area for both boys and girls. Our teams include both competitive travel teams and recreational in-house programs.
The club works closely with both WECMRD (Western Eagle County Metropolitan Recreation District), and the VRD (Vail Recreation District) who manage the ice rink facilities in Eagle and Vail. The club purchases ice time at both of these rinks and strives to maintain a geographic balance to the program through out the valley. In addition, the club provides coaching and assistance to these organizations for their in-house hockey programs.
Hockey is a wonderful sport for all ages. Over the last 30 years the club programs have created great experiences for our boys and girls, that are remembered for a lifetime. We look forward to a new generation of players joining the club, and making new memories that will last their lifetime.
