The term "travel hockey" often evokes overly competitive coaches putting excessive expectations on kids to win games, trophies and banners so the hockey program can promote how many of those trophies, banners and games they have won to the next layer of incoming players. The Orlando Hammerheads is the opposite of that.
- No drafts, recruiting or try outs. All are welcome.
- Perspective. All of the Hammerheads coaches work from the same perspective that the games should be fun first for the kids.
- Competition. Kids love to compete. They do it on the playground and in the backyard. We encourage that competition in a safe, positive environment.
- Learning to love the game. Hockey is a great sport that can carry with kids through adulthood. We are building the next generation of Adult House League players; the 99% of players who will never play a professional game, but love the game and continue to be a part of it long after their hair turns gray.
