Hockey Superskills Competition and Christmas Celebration


On the evening of December 22, 2016 Pincher Creek Hockey Association hosted a skills competion at the MCC arena, open to all players, parents and fans. The event began with a group portrait of all the Chinooks, Huskies, and coaches in attendance.  Different age levels put their skills to the test against their peers in a variety of challenges designed to showcase their abilities and skills they have developed over the course of the year while maintaining a fun atmosphere. Parents and coaches participated in a turkey shoot.

Support the kids


Pincher Creek's minor hockey teams are playing to smaller and smaller crowds of late.   What's up with that?  They deserve your support.  They're playing their hearts out every weekend.  Hats off to all the parents, grandparents, peers, and other hockey supporters who make it happen and cheer the kids on every weekend.
