Peabody Youth Hockey - HOME OF THE TANNERS - is an all volunteer, non-profit, amateur youth hockey association which was organized in 1967 and skates at the McVann-O'Keefe Rink in Peabody.
Our mission is based on the values and goals set forth by USA Hockey. The core values of USA Hockey include sportsmanship, respect for individual, integrity, pursuit of excellence, enjoyment, loyalty, and teamwork. The philosophies are aimed at achieving programs which stimulate increased and equitable participation, improvement of skills, and which operate in a responsible environment for the conduct of youth hockey.
Peabody Youth Hockey is committed to provide programs and opportunities for as many boys and girls who wish to participate in youth hockey. We offer innovative programs to provide new players with entry into amateur ice hockey and to offer existing players an opportunity for continued development and growth.
A. SPORTMANSHIP – Foremost of all values is to learn a sense of fair play. Become humble in victory, gracious in defeat. We will foster friendship with teammates and opponents alike.
B. RESPECT FOR THE INDIVIDUAL – Treat all others as you expect to be treated.
C. INTEGRITY – We seek to foster honesty and fair play beyond mere strict interpretation of the rules and regulations of the game.
D. PURSUIT OF EXCELLENCE AT THE INDIVIDUAL, TEAM AND ORGANIZATIONAL LEVELS – Each member of the organization, whether player, volunteer or staff, should seek to perform each aspect of the game to the highest level of his or her ability.
E. ENJOYMENT – it is important for the hockey experience to be fun, satisfying and rewarding for all participants.
F. LOYALTY- We aspire to teach loyalty to the ideals and fellow members of the sport of hockey.
G. TEAMWORK – We value the strength of learning to work together. The use of teamwork is reinforced and rewarded by success in the hockey experience.
