Upward Hockey



Upward Hockey provides a positive sports experience for every child and makes the most of your family’s time and money.

*Learn to Play Program - Ages 5 - 12 - covers items such as game skating skills, stopping, stick handling, passing and game play ideal for those who have never played hockey, or have only a few years of experience. Players should have a basic level of skating skills.  Monday nights 4 - 6pm at Don Beer Arena, Cost - $400.  There is limited space for this program so registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.  With only 40 spots available, you will want to register quickly.

The program started 45 years ago with the idea of an alternative to Sunday sports and providing a less competitive environment where kids ages 5 to 16 could enjoy the sport of hockey in a fun and flexible environment. Participation is valued above the usual disqualifiers. Handicaps are accommodated where possible.

A key goal is the holistic development of players using Luke 2:52 as a guideline: “And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.”

Wisdom: players learn that life requires discernment to make good choices.

Stature: players get bodily exercise.

Favour with God: players develop spiritually from devotions.

Favour with man: players develop relationally and make friends.
