For the 2nd straight year the State of Hockey is helping to raise money for children battling cancer and local hockey associations. From, October 14 through December 14, buying this exclusive SOH/LYM hat, $10 will go back to your local hockey association and be shipped directly to your home! As a state, let’s continue to help bring hope to kids that cannot play this game we all love, while continuing to help grow hockey here in Minnesota.
The State of Hockey, backed by the Minnesota Wild, aims to bottle the passion Minnesotans have for the sport of hockey to celebrate and promote the game at all levels. In Minnesota, hockey is more than a game. It’s a part of life. It embodies who we are - capturing our passion, our commitment and our joy. It’s a connection to previous and future generations and a source of pride for Minnesotans.

Congrats to Sibley Area Youth Hockey for being awarded for the second year in a row the Gold Medal Certification for the USA Hockey 2 & 2 Challenge.
The 2 and 2 Challenge guides youth hockey leadership through national programs and tools to drive participation at the 4 to 8 age group. By growing hockey at this age group, programs experience long-term growth as these kids continue to develop.
The goal of the 2 and 2 Challenge is to realize the goal of acquiring at least 2 new players and retaining 2 additional players than the previous season's total in the 8 & under age category. Thanks you for all those who have helped build our Mite, U8 and Mini-Mite program with a special call out to efforts of Ted Kronschnabel. Great Job!

We are excited to announce the formation of the SG3 Foundation!
The SG3 Foundation was established to honor the life of Sam Gottfredsen whose passion for hockey permeated his life both as a player and a youth hockey coach. The Foundation is his family and friends’ effort to advance Sam’s legacy by enriching the lives of youth and junior hockey players through scholarship, engagement and support.
Sam played all of his youth hockey career in the Sibley association and continued as a coach for the Pee Wee teams in his adult years. Sam was taken from us in a tragic car accident this past May and the SG3 will continue to keep Sam's love for hockey active in our Sibley community.

John V. Hoene - West St. Paul Arena is located at 60 West Emerson in West St. Paul. The arena is a classic rink erected in 1971 for the historic Sibley Area youth hockey association Warriors Boy's and Girl's hockey teams. The rink itself is really squeezed within the walls of the building with no room to walk from the players benches/scorekeepers box. Additionally, the net-ends of the rink meet brick walls for either end of the structure so there is no walking room to circle around the ice sheet. The wall and clock that hang above the entrance wall of the rink have seen more shots than retired NHL goaltenders with the puck marks to prove it!
The arena itself is named after John V. Hoene (1914-2001) whom devoted his adult life to youth hockey; spearheading the effort in the early 1970's to get an ice arena built in the city. Being an old-time hockey player/coach himself in both Duluth and West St. Paul until age 72, he was a lifelong promotor of youth hockey and other sports. An incorporator of the youth hockey association of West St. Paul in 1965, Hoene won the West St. Paul 1970 "Man of the Year" award in recognition of his efforts for young people. John was the original inductee in the West St. Paul Hockey Hall of Fame, and he provided the foundation for the West St. Paul arena to exist.
The 1971 erected arena underwent renovation in 1997, that added the front lobby, concessions, bathrooms, offices and locker-rooms that were not part of the original structure.
In 2015 new refrigeration equipment and coils were added to ensure many more years of use!
