Snider Hockey is thrilled to announce its membership in the Atlantic Girls Hockey Federation (AGHF) for the 2024-25 season. Founded in 2005 as the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation as a means to create opportunities for inner-city youth to play hockey, a partnership was formed with Philadelphia Public Schools to provide opportunities to participate in Learn to Play Hockey programs. 

The Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation was created in 2005 by former Philadelphia sports-based entrepreneur Ed Snider, a Stanley Cup winner as majority owner of the 1974 Flyers. He began the foundation “to bring the “the greatest game ever invented” to children who otherwise might never have the opportunity to play.” In the past two decades, Snider Hockey has given thousands of children the opportunity to become hockey players. 

Snider Hockey now fields teams from learn to play, in house and over 20 co-ed and girls travel teams and will compete in the AGHF in the upcoming 2024-25 season.
