MISSION & VISION
Our mission as a club is to provide children with a fun, wholesome sport-fitness activity which will be physically and mentally stimulating, to promote sportsmanship and safe, competitive play and to help the children improve their knowledge and skill.
We are always looking for parents to volunteer to help. Whether it’s sewing, fundraising, helping run the bench at games, etc., we want to get our parents more involved!
We’re continually working to find ways to raise funds to purchase uniforms and equipment and lower the overall cost for our players and their parents. If you have fundraising ideas, please share them with us!
Board of Directors
Our volunteer board of directors gives their time to guide our club…
All of our board members are parents of youth players. We give our time and energy to help the club grow and to make the experience more fun and meaningful for all of our players. There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes work that has to happen to keep everything moving forward and to build the program to make it bigger. We have exciting plans and ambitions for our club!
The Board of Directors is made up of the following volunteers:
President: Erik Dahl
Vice President: Gene Blondel
Secretary: John Mertes
Treasurer: Dave Peterson
Registrar: Matt Planer
Our Travel Team Coaches:
Coach Josh Smith grew up playing inline hockey in Tucson and is the head coach for the rec teams and for our 12u, 14u and Midget travel teams. In addition to playing, refereeing and coaching the youth and adult teams at Tucson Indoor Sports, he also helps coach the U of A inline hockey team.
Coach David Sticker also grew up playing inline hockey in Tucson and became involved in coaching while working as the manager at Tucson Indoor Sports. He envisioned the program growing and expanding to include travel teams. The Board seized upon his vision and formed the Club. He played defense on the University of Arizona inline hockey team and helps coach the U of A team.
Coaches Brian Hillegonds, Kurt Beutel and Coach Mike Richardson are all parents who play inline hockey themselves and volunteer their time to help coach both our rec teams and our 8u travel teams.
