OYHA Mission Statement
Orono Hockey Boosters provides a traveling hockey program for youth in the Orono community, including but not limited to students in the Orono Minnesota School District. We operate American Development Model (ADM) programs for kids at the 4-9 year old level as well as traveling teams for boys at the A, B, and C levels for Squirts, PeeWees, and Bantams, and for girls at the U10, U12, and U15 levels. We also are committed to offering a program at other youth levels (Junior Gold) when the demand within our association justifies doing so. We operate under the terms of a Code of Conduct that is signed and acknowledged by all players, parents, and coaches each season.
Our philosophy is to promote the growth and development of players in a fun, fair, and safe environment that maximizes player participation and skill development at all levels while also developing sportsmanship, teamwork, and self-confidence.
We believe that participation in youth hockey should lead to building of personal self-esteem, self-discipline, social skills, and respect for others.
We are committed to evaluating our programs on an ongoing basis to ensure that we are serving our memberships’ needs, developing our players at all skill levels, and providing a positive experience for our youth.
