At Detroit Performance Hockey, we pride ourselves on being a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We have worked with several organizations, including the City of Detroit and Detroit Parks and Recreation Department to ensure Detroit’s youth has access to free/low-cost hockey equipment and programs.
Through our programs, we are able to promote a healthy lifestyle through athletics. Coaches emphasize the importance of a healthy diet and staying hydrated as an athlete. It is vital that each player is properly hydrated before, during, and after practices. To help promote this, our friends at Howies Hockey Tape donated water bottles that our coaches fill and bring to every camp.
In December 2015, our partnered hockey camps started with four kids and two ice sessions a week. As the camps continued to gain momentum, we had no less than 20 kids on the ice at each session in May. Since Jack Adams Memorial Arena melts the ice in the summer, we helped out with a floor hockey program with over 100 kids, ages 4-14.
After the success of our Jack Adams program, we have implemented a similar program called the Home Ice Advantage youth hockey program at the Mt. Clemens Ice Arena. Through this program, we are able to grow the game by helping more kids in metro Detroit experience the game we love.
