HEROS, KidSport Calgary & Area and the Calgary Flames Sports Bank charities to benefit from this association wide community focused pilot program.

Through the launch of this new pilot program all teams in the Calgary Northstars program will unite to support the great work of HEROS (Hockey Education Reaching Out Society), Calgary Flames Sports Bank and KidSport Calgary & Area.  Together, with the support of their players, coaches and families, the Northstars teams will be working with these organizations to learn about their impact, understand who they are supporting and raise profile, awareness and dollars for the critical work being done by these great organizations.

HEROS , the Calgary Flames Sports Bank and KidSport Calgary & Area are the proud charity partners of this newly launched program.  Together, these organizations support thousands of local kids with access to sport and the many, many positive mental, physical and personal benefits that come from participation.

“As the Calgary Northstars Hockey Association, we believe in development as a holistic approach. In addition to providing on ice resources and development, we value teaching life skills and supporting the development of great people as well as great players.” Noted Jesse Hale General Manager, Hockey Operations for the Calgary Northstars Hockey Association.

“I am really impressed and encouraged by a trend we have seen in our area over the past few years.  Hockey Calgary players, coaches, and parents working as a team to be of service to their community through acts of charity.” Highlighted Rob Kerr, active volunteer, board member and supporter with HEROS, KidSport Calgary and the Flames Sports Bank. 

The Calgary Northstars mission statement is “We will strive in all that we do to provide aggressive development of exceptional people, players and teams on and off the ice. We will act with integrity and will always be guided by ‘doing the right thing’. We will encourage all our players, coaches and members to be courageous, creative and curious. The Calgary Northstars will be more than a hockey association- we will be a community that comes together on and off the ice.”
