DAWG Nation is striving to invigorate the Colorado ice hockey community by creating unique events, support, and opportunities for players and their families. all while promoting high standards in health, wellness, generosity, and fair play. We began in 2011 as a small group honoring a fallen teammate. We bonded together, dedicated our resources, and have grown into an influential organization which makes meaningful contributions, positively impacting the entire Colorado hockey community.
This continuing mission has led us to an exciting announcement. DAWG Nation will design, construct, and operate the nation’s first multi-sheet hockey facility which is purpose-built to support both disabled and able-bodied athletes... We know this is ambitious, but with your help, this unique effort will be achieved. We are partnering with some of Colorado’s leading companies, and I hope you’ll join with us to make this dream become reality!
DAWG Nation Hockey Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity dedicated to providing opportunities for persons with and without disabilities to gain confidence and independence through participation in national and international amateur ice hockey events, and to support local, national and international amateur ice hockey players and their families in times of crisis. At DAWG Nation, we believe that every ice hockey player regardless of level or ability should: Play Hard. Play Fair. Give Back.
We're taking this motto to a whole new level. We plan to build a three-sheet ice complex designed to fully accommodate both sled hockey and ice hockey. This rink will connect the surrounding communities in Colorado with youth and adult programs, anchoring several nearby high school programs. The rink will also serve as the home to Colorado Sled Hockey Clubs with the capability of hosting both national and international sled hockey events.
