Creating access and opportunities so that everyone who wants to play, can play
We are expanding access to programs at Kraken Community Iceplex for all families by partnering with schools and community organizations to connect with low-income families and youth of color to build an equitable and inclusive hockey culture in the region.
Financial assistance is available for the following programs:
Training the next generation of skaters
At One Roof Foundation, we’re on a mission to open doors to a world of possibilities on the ice and dedicated to providing opportunities to skate for the next generation.
At the heart of our partnership with Refugee Women’s Alliance (ReWA), lies a powerful vision: to create a level playing field in the world of ice skating and hockey. By partnering with ReWA, we’re bridging gaps and forging pathways to a brighter, more inclusive future.
For 32 exciting weeks each year, we sponsor 80 preschoolers from ReWA Early Learning Centers and their introduction to ice sports. Each week these young adventurers embark on a journey to Kraken Community Iceplex where they not only hone their skating skills in an extensive Learn to Skate course, but also nurture qualities like discipline, teamwork, and self-confidence.
For Title 1 schools and youth-based non-profits who are interested in a skating field trip at Kraken Community Iceplex, let us help cover the cost! We will ensure a seamless and memorable experience for students, teachers, and chaperones.
Participating in this program is easy, simply reach out to coordinate your visit.
Parks are more than just places to play, they’re spaces that promote inclusivity, unity, and growth. We are committed to building multisport courts across the region, empowering local neighborhoods, and inspiring the next generation of athletes. By providing more accessible multi-use spaces, we’re creating opportunities for everyone to participate in hockey, on and off the ice.
These courts are carefully designed to meet the unique needs of each neighborhood. From street hockey to basketball and futsal, our goal is to create spaces that cater to a diverse range of interests and ages.
We are partnering with local school districts and youth-focused non-profit organizations to introduce the sport of hockey to kids across the Puget Sound region. Floorball is a great way to share the sport we love without needing ice time or expensive gear.
By donating the necessary equipment and introducing our curriculum developed with Virginia Mason Franciscan Health, schools can incorporate floorball into their regular physical education classes or start their own extracurricular programs around hockey without having to leave the gym.
We’re expanding floorball to more school districts every year. For more information on how you can start your own program, click the button below.
