   Mission Statement                      

 

Glacier Hockey Association is a non-profit community youth hockey organization that provides an instructional hockey experience for youth ages 4-18 in a safe and supportive environment. Glacier Hockey Association strives to promote an enriching environment in a community setting while providing foundational skills, in accordance with USA Hockey’s American Development Model program to foster youth development and encouraging a lifelong love of hockey and team sports. GHA endeavors to impart the hockey values of character, hard work, teamwork, sportsmanship, and respect that lead to player success both on and off the ice.

   Goals of the Association            

 

GHA strives to ensure that it accomplishes this mission by promoting each player's love of the sport through hockey instruction that emphasizes team and individual skill development. Our goal is to continue to develop and strengthen our programs and organization and give our players the opportunity to participate to the best of their ability and develop as young athletes, while making the costs of our programs affordable to all families.
