Core Values

As part of our Leadership initiative with Sled Hockey we would like to present the USA Hockey Core Values as a guide for all Sled Hockey participants.



Foremost of all values is to learn a sense of fair play.  Be humble in victory, gracious in defeat.  We will foster friendship with teammates and opponents alike.


Respect for the Individual

Treat all others as you expect to be treated.



We seek to foster honesty and fair play beyond mere strict interpretation of the rules and regulations of the game.


Pursuit of Excellence at the Individual, Team and Organizational Levels

Each member of the organization, whether player, volunteer or staff, should seek to perform each aspect of the game to the highest level of his or her ability.



It is important for the hockey experience to be fun, satisfying and rewarding for all participants.



We aspire to teach loyalty to the ideals and fellow members of the sports of hockey.



We value the strength of learning to work together.  The use of teamwork is reinforced and rewarded by success in the hockey experience.
