The Capital City Crew is part of the "NHL's Hockey is for Everyone" initiative and provides an opportunity for inner-city youth ages 8-14 to play ice hockey through our partnerships with the Wake County Boys & Girls Clubs, Raleigh Youth Hockey Association (RYHA), and the Carolina Hurricanes. Our program teaches life skills and positive character traits such as leadership, gamesmanship, respect, cooperation, industriousness, honesty, and integrity through the sport of ice hockey.
Our program dedicates itself to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential on the ice and in the community.
Beginning with the 2010-2011 season, the Capital City Crewis affiliated with and operates under the RYHA 501(c)3 status.
