The San Diego Saints Hockey Club provides youth and adolescents with the opportunity to participate in the fastest and coolest sport on the planet. Through this experience, we provide every player with numerous life lessons that accompany elite level sports. We develop hockey skills by encouraging intrinsic motivation and a passion for the game of ice hockey. Each season, we help players enter the game while also assisting those graduating to the next level.
It is our goal to grow the game of ice hockey by providing every interested participant with any form of support needed to play.

While most of the club was playing in various tournaments over President's Day Weekend, a number of our high school players, their head coach, our hockey director, and some brave parents traveled to Toronto Canada. While there they visited Everest & The Hill, York University, and the University of Toronto. They played in 3 different scrimmages, toured the Hockey Hall of Fame, and had time to play pond hockey! It was a trip that will not be forgotten.
The boys went 4-0 in pool play, defeating teams from CA, AZ, and NV to make it to the championship game. Then they won the championship with a 5-0 shut out! It was a real display of teamwork and sportsmanship over the weekend. Everyone on the team had either at least one goal or at least one assists.
Off ice the boys attended shows, walked the strip, zip lined, road the NY NY Roller Coaster, visited the Hoover Dam, played laser tag, ate a bunch of M&Ms, spent time together, and they even had a friendly lunch with the Las Vegas team they went to the Championship with.
Our Mighty Mites team played in Irvine over President's Weekend.
Competing against 7 other teams they emerged 5-0-1 in Pool Play. Then they defeated the Jr Gulls in an amazing 2-0 victory that happened in the last 3 minutes of the game, it was 0-0 with 3 min left! However,they fell to Goldrush in the Championship game, only loosing 0-1. Talk about some great match ups! We are very proud of all their hard work.
Off ice the kids went to Great Wolf Lodge for an afternoon to celebrate a teammate's birthday, another day they had a pizza party, and then these crazy kids spent an afternoon swimming outside at the pool! Oh to be 6-9 years old again, what a life!
