We are a strong proud women-led initiative that seeks to bring the great game of hockey to all Chicago-area youth. We are passionate about building inclusive communities around hockey, championing academics, and having fun in a safe environment.
Equity – We believe regardless of socioeconomic status, everyone should have access to hockey all year round. We also believe regardless of race, sexual orientation, ability, heritage, all athletes should be treated with respect in an inclusive safe environment.
Education - Knowledge is power and physical activity increases energy, helping children perform better in the classroom. We strive to be a positive outlet promoting the importance of becoming your best self.
Fun – We want to bring happiness to kids out on the ice. An activity they can take with them off the ice to their neighborhood that promotes joy and play.
Humility – We promote sportsmanship and teamwork.
Community – Uplifting communities by providing access. We believe access equals opportunity. And when everyone in the community has opportunity positive change happens.
Passion – Hockey On Your Block was built with a passion for the sport of ice hockey. A passion we want to pass on to the next generation of hockey players and fans.
