Our Bonnyville PONTIAC organization represents ‘more than just hockey’ and it will be the best program to play Junior ‘A’ hockey in the country because our culture and our environment both on and off the ice reflects ‘doing things right and treating people the right way;’ it reflects helping players achieve their goals on and off the ice; it reflects a family emphasis where our people grow and thrive gratefully during and after they leave our program because of their time spent as a Bonnyville PONTIAC.
The Bonnyville PONTIACS organization has high expectations both on and off the ice for every member of our hockey club, from the coaching staff, to each other, all the way down to our players. We also feel that, as an organization, in a community that supports us so strongly, we have a major responsibility in being positive role models and mentors giving back to the people in all areas of life. As a coaching staff we encourage that, on and off the ice our players embrace the pride and commitment level required to dedicate themselves each and every day to become better athletes and people.
