The fact that a professional sports team is a representative of a community is not a given. It is a relationship that the Flames continuously work to develop by supporting programs that develop grassroots hockey in Southern Alberta.
As we move forward into the upcoming season below are the components in our commitment to minor hockey we plan to continue to support as well as new initiatives in our effort to nourish and breed the loyal fan base known as the C of Red.
