Thank you for your interest in the Northstar Christian Academy Prep Team! We are extremely excited to have received our MN/USA Hockey sanction so that we can field our first prep team in the fall of 2018!
The Mission of the Prep Team is to develop athletes to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, with a foundation built on spiritual development, academic advancement, and athletic excellence.
Our Vision for the Prep Program is to develop athletes who have a transforming impact on their hockey teams, professions, communities and families for the Lord Jesus Christ.
Hockey is about transformation, character development, and building men, not primarily outcome and performance
Players should be encouraged and transformed into better men by their coaches, built up and not broken down.
Playing the game should not create anxiety but rather enjoyment
Growth happens when we push ourselves to excellence within a Christ-centered environment
Athletics gives us the opportunity to put into practice what we learn in the classroom in regards to our core values.
Our commitment is to ensure that every player knows (1) he is loved by the Lord, our coaches and staff, (2) what it means to be a servant leader among teammates and (3) is pushed to reach their full potential with the gifts the Lord has given them.
Teams – Initially, we will have 1 Preparatory team made up of 20 players competing at the Prep School / U18 level (2000-2002 birth year players). We hope to play in the new NAHL Prep League as well as compete against other U18 and Prep teams across the country. We will use our upcoming events and camps (Pre-Draft showcase, Team FCA, etc.) to evaluate potential players and offer roster spots based on the best fit for our program.
