Youth For Christ® Hockey League (YFCHL) exists to share the love of God through the experience of hockey, teamwork and positive adult mentorship in a safe community. Primarily composed of inner-city youth in Saskatoon, the eight team league meets weekly, playing about 35 regular season games before battling it out in the playoffs for a chance to win our replica Stanley Cup. Although we all love hockey, we enable the kids we connect with to excel in life and not just hockey.
To have our students know, love and serve Jesus and bring restorative work to the world around them.
YFCHL Hat Trick
01. SUSTAINABLE HOPE
“YFCHL gave me a family when I never really had one.”
Youth For Christ Hockey League was started in 2009 by Kim Worthington. After working as a youth worker in inner-city Saskatoon, he saw a natural talent for hockey that could not be fulfilled due to lack of resources. Many students from the core area of Saskatoon were clearly talented and athletic, but unable to come up with the resources to play in a community league. Having planned and prepared for a full year, he launched YFCHL in September 2009 with one league of 6 teams, a website, statistics, coaches, a 40+ game schedule and a one-third replica Stanley cup for the winning team to have their names immortalized on! Based out of the central school Princess Alexandra, the teams would come together every Wednesday for that first year, playing two games a night, and having an opportunity to get to know mentors that would walk with them through life. Since then the program has expanded to 8 teams, bringing out over 60 kids weekly and now runs out of St. Gerard School at 205 Montreal Ave. North.
