Pee Wee AA PAHL Season and Playoff Champions - Undefeated 20-0-0 Record
Coach Klasnick’s Pee Wee AA team concluded their perfect season by winning the playoff banner. Congratulations to the players and coaches on a remarkable season!
Pee Wee Kepperling - A Major Gold Playoff Champions
Pete Kepperling's Peewee team captured the A Major Gold banner with a 3-1 win over the Crawford Flames. Coach Kepperling notes, "It's very difficult to put into words the pride that I have for this team. To come back from being down a goal in both the semi-final against Lawrence and the final against Crawford to win both games and the playoff banner speaks to the resilience and never-say-die attitude that our kids possess. They are champions in the truest sense of the word."
Squirt AA Receives at Large Bid to International Silver SticksCoach Scot Lehman’s AA squirt team finished as a runner-up at the Silver Sticks Regional in Dayton, OH. The team lost a thrilling 3-2 game in overtime in the championship game, but because of their tremendous play and even better sportsmanship, the Silver Stick International Tournament Committee extended the team an “At Large” bid to the finals in Sarnia, Ont. Congratulations to a great group of Hornets!!

Game of the Week
The Mt. Lebanon Hockey Association has launched the Game of the Week, a promotion meant to build fun and community from the youngest to the oldest players and their families. Visit the Game of the Week page for details about previous and upcoming featured Hornet games.
USA Hockey mandates the safety and well-being of our athletes be taken very seriously. One of the many ways that we go about ensuring athlete safety is by requiring all coaches to take the SafeSport training every two years. Parents are encouraged to take the training, as well. Information on SafeSport, including how to take the training, can be found at safesport.org.
Direct links to the training:
SafeSport: http://training.teamusa.org/store/details/1 - For coaches who have not previously taken the training. Critical information to help keep every program safe: Athletes will perform better, soar higher, and get more from sport if they feel safe. Misconduct threatens that safety, and it can happen in every sport and at every competitive level. This SafeSport online training program teaches you about the nature of misconduct in sport: how to recognize it, how to prevent it, and how to take action. The information in this course will help keep sport a positive experience for every athlete, coach, and volunteer.
SafeSport Refresher: http://training.teamusa.org/store/details/6 Review key concepts to help keep athletes safe. If it has been a year or more since you completed your initial SafeSport training, we recommend this brief refresher course. This half-hour training reviews critical concepts to help keep your program safe and positive for every participant.
SafeSport Parent: http://training.teamusa.org/store/details/8 - For parents of athletes, this course addresses important topics around recognizing, preventing, and taking action against misconduct in sports from a parent perspective. This course, which takes a little over half an hour to complete, helps parents become active participants in creating safe, positive sports environments for their child.
