It's an exhilarating 6-week program that introduces participants to the wonderful world of ice hockey.

Becoming HEROES: Inspiring Leadership, One Letter at a Time:

At Hasek's Heroes, we're not just teaching skating; we're shaping the leaders of tomorrow. Our skaters will earn a letter on their helmets to spell out "HEROES." These letters represent the qualities of true heroes and leaders:

  • Week 1: H - Helpful
  • Week 2: E - Engaged
  • Week 3: R - Responsible
  • Week 4: O - Open-minded
  • Week 5: E - Empathetic
  • Week 6: S - Selfless

Our passionate coaches will infuse these qualities into each practice, guiding participants to embrace them both on and off the ice. As skaters demonstrate these attributes, they'll earn their HEROES stickers. By the program's end, their helmets will proudly display the complete set of HEROES letters, symbolizing their journey towards becoming not just skilled athletes, but true heroes and leaders in their own right.


Are you ready to be a part of the Hasek's Heroes journey? Lace up those skates, grab a helmet, and let's hit the ice together! Let's turn the ice into our playground and the rink into our stage of dreams.
