Our Hockey Club is dedicated to the development of hockey players both on and off the ice. With our strategic partnership with the Salvation Army, we spend countless hours devoted to giving back to our community with the adoption of multiple families and bell ringing events during the Holiday Seasons.
We also host a Skate-a-thon and a Red Wing Alumni game to raise money for the Salvation Army funds throughout the year.
Our players learn the importance of giving their all on the ice and still helping others who are less fortunate. This opportunity teaches our players how to win with grace, lose with dignity, and still understand how fortunate they are.
The Oakland Junior Grizzlies Hockey Association is proud to announce a new partnership with the Little Caesars Roller Hockey Association in a joint effort to get more kids to try our great sport of hockey. Whether you decide to play it inline or on ice does not matter. The two sports compliment each other in every way and many kids have used one sport to gain advantages in the other. Many of the areas’ top players play both ice and roller hockey year round.
