ABOUT US

The Northwest Warriors Hockey Association’s story began in 2012 when the Westwood Warriors and the Crowchild Blackhawks hockey programs merged.  The two associations worked in partnership for 8 seasons before officially amalgamating to become the Northwest Warriors Hockey Association in 2021.

Northwest Warriors exist to provide an enjoyable, rewarding hockey experience to participants where they can develop a strong sense of community while growing socially, physically and emotionally.

Core Values

The Warriors will continuously strive to achieve both individual and team success while adhering to this Mission Statement and delivering a hockey experience that is safe, fair, stimulating, and delivered in a respectful environment while observing a suitable balance of the following core values.

The Participant – Provide individuals with experiences that allow them to enjoy the game while developing personally in an environment free of bias, discrimination, harassment and abuse.

 

The Team – Foster commitment to a group through opportunities for working, learning and achieving together.

 

The Game of Hockey – Teach and develop skills suitable for participation and to maximize enjoyment and appreciation of the game.
