MISSION STATEMENT

The California Heat Travel Hockey Club is committed to building character through competitive excellence and strengthening the community through teamwork, leadership, and respect for all.

ABOUT THE CA HEAT HOCKEY CLUB

The California Heat is a not-for-profit youth hockey organization located in the heart of the San Fernando Valley at the LA Kings Valley Ice Center.  We offer high level training via professional hockey instructors to beginning and experienced players ranging in age from five to eighteen.  Originally founded in 1991 as the West Valley Wolves, the club is one of the oldest in the Southern California Amateur Hockey Association (SCAHA), carrying a strong tradition of success and a family-oriented atmosphere. The West Valley Wolves officially changed its name to California Heat in 2012. The organization is committed to developing excellent hockey players while encouraging leadership and community involvement off the ice.  Heat players past and present routinely assist with teams within the club and with the LAVIC’s California Condors special needs program.  We instill sportsmanship, teach leadership, discipline, responsibility, team work, work ethic and promote the importance of education. Some recent successes on the ice include 2014 Southern California Bantam A Champions, Bantam B Southern California Champions in 2013, Pee Wee AA National Champions in 2011 and 2010 Midget 16UAA California Champions. We also celebrate the everyday accomplishments of the nearly 120 Heat players who dedicate themselves to the game of hockey.  They work tirelessly on their game, travel many miles to compete, rise early to lace up their skates and balance their academic life with their hockey life.
