Kinsmen Inner City Hockey League

The Kinsmen Hockey League has been running since 1992 and introduces boys and girls between the ages of 8-12 to the fundamentals of hockey.

The Kinsmen Hockey League provides core city schools with funding, giving underprivileged youth a chance to learn the sport of hockey. The Kinsmen Hockey League works closely with teachers to encourage players to stay in school and to develop their skills on and off the ice. 

The Kinsmen Hockey League makes a difference in so many of these kids’ lives. And that difference is immeasurable.

Kinsmen Hockey Stats

  • More than 24 years
  • Over 16 core city schools
  • Approx. 320 underprivileged youth every year

Kinsmen Funding

Using part of our yearly donations, Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon provides funding for core schools to have hockey teams at no cost to the participants! Kids are chosen by the school teacher based on those who need it most, show up to class, and have a positive attitude. Kinsmen Hockey League funding pays for:

  • Coaches
  • Ice Rentals
  • Equipment 
  • Transportation to and from games/practices
  • Team Insurance 
  • End of year tournament with meals and medals 

Hockey Skills

By teaching these kids the fundamentals of hockey some are able to excel and try out for minor hockey in Saskatoon. The Kinsmen Hockey League committee has also helped families apply for grants to continue to play hockey outside of our league. Our teams are non-contact and focus on important skills like:

  • Shooting
  • Stickhandling
  • Agility & speed
  • Drills
  • Concentration and technique
  • Fundamental rules of hockey

We see a shift in attitudes of the kids involved in the KHL. They seem to really get it that they need to be good kids in order to participate. Thank you Kinsmen.
