The Las Vegas Firefighter Youth Hockey is a 501 (C)3 non-profit organization founded by Las Vegas area firefighters. We founded the LVFFYH in hopes to assist Las Vegas area youth in two specific areas. The first was to assist families monetarily that are having difficulties financially keeping their kids in the local hockey programs. Additionally, we want to assist inner city children by exposing them to ice hockey by attending learn to skate programs.
Through grants received by the USA Hockey foundation and local hockey clinics the LVFFYH has raised over $25,000.00. We have begun a scholarship program in conjunction with the Las Vegas Jr. Wranglers so that we can begin assisting children and their families that may not have the financial means to remain enrolled.
The reason we formed the LVFFYH is because we have been in and around the game of hockey most of our lives and realize the critical role it played in shaping the people we are today. Ice hockey is the ultimate team sport, teaching teamwork, integrity, commitment and camaraderie. Our organizations mission is to give kids the opportunity to learn the same skills and values that have served us so well throughout our lives.
