Bantam Minor Hurricanes Capture Texas Shootout Title

After a heart-stopping shootout victory in the semifinals over the previously undefeated TX Jr. Stars, the Hurricanes provided quite the encore performance in the championship game.  Trailing 2-1 against the Jr. Brahmas, the Cardiac Canes tied the game in the final 30 seconds to force overtime.  After a scoreless OT session, the Hurricanes won their 2nd game in a row by shootout to bring the silver cowboy boot trophy back to Houston.  Go Hurricanes!

    Announcing the Houston Hurricanes

    Hounds Hockey and the Sugar Land Jr. Imperials are proud to announce the formation of the Houston Hurricanes.  Having many shared hockey philosophies, both organizations recognize that our mutual goal of growing the game of hockey in Houston will be more easily met by joining forces into a single, stronger organization.  With our combined resources, including our highly qualified coaching staff and passionate volunteers, the Houston Hurricanes will place the priority on developing each player to their maximum potential both on and off the ice.  This will be accomplished by providing exceptional coaching and mentoring while exceeding the highest standards of sportsmanship among our players, parents, coaches and volunteers.

    By joining together, we plan to field 5 travel teams (10U, two 12U, two 14U) for the 2015/16 season in the Dallas Stars Travel Hockey League (DSTHL.)  We will skate out of both the Sugar Land Ice and Sports Center and the Bellerive Ice Center. 

    The Houston Hurricanes will be structured using the bylaws, TAHA charter and 501c3 non-profit status of the Bay Area Houston Hockey Association (BAHHA.)  The teams will be governed by a Board of Directors (BOD) comprised of members from both former organizations.  The BOD will also govern the Hounds house program which will continue to use the Hounds name and logo.  The Sugar Land Jr. Imperials house program will continue to be run by the Sugar Land Ice Center with support from the Houston Hurricanes.

    Please share in our excitement by attending our parent information session at Bellerive Ice Center on May 9th at 10:30am where we will unveil our new logo and announce our 2015/16 coaching staff.  Players are welcome to attend the information session as there will be open ice at no cost from 10:30-11:30am (full equipment is required.)

    Squirt Hounds Last Game at SCIS

    Hounds Say Goodbye to Space City Ice

    It was a bittersweet moment when the scoreboard ticked down to zero on a 6-4 victory for the Hounds squirt team as the players, coaches and parents realized it would be the last Hounds game played at Space City Ice.  Only an hour earlier the Hounds mite team finished their final game with one last chant of "Who are we? Hounds!" before saluting the crowd at center ice.  

    While the only home the Hounds have ever known will be sold to a car dealership early in October, we all took one last day to remember all that Space City Ice has given us.  As the kids marched off to the lockerroom with big smiles on their faces, we realize that this is not the end... this pack of Hounds will play on together!  Go Hounds!
