United Heroes League Programs for Military kids

United Heroes League 501(c)(3)  has provided over $3 MILLION dollars worth of free sports equipment, game tickets, cash grants, and skill development camps to military families across the US & Canada. Special thanks to all of our incredible volunteers, donors, partners, supporters, and amazing military families for making the mission possible!

United Heroes League keeps military kids active and healthy while their parents serve our country. So far we have helped over 40,000 military families keep or start their kids in sports.  Who’s Eligible?


Through our NHL, MLB, MLS and NBA team and player partners, United Heroes League has sent thousands of military families to pro and college games for free nationwide. Special thanks to the Anaheim Ducks, Minnesota Wild, Pittsburgh Penguins, Los Angeles Kings, Boston Bruins, New York Islanders, Arizona Coyotes, Dallas Stars, Columbus Blue Jackets, San Jose Sharks, Washington Capitals, Minnesota Twins, Washington Nationals, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Nashville Predators for making this possible.  Additionally, pro player Brent Burns provides a luxury suite at every Sharks home game dubbed “Burnzie’s Battalion”. Over 7,000 military personnel have been sent to an NHL game for free so far. Request tickets.


We are proud to distribute gear for a variety of sports to ensure military kids are healthy and active in the sport they love.  The NHLPA Goals and Dreams Foundation has donated $300,000 worth of new hockey equipment for our cause. Many other sponsors and individuals have also donated baseball, basketball, football, golf, lacrosse and soccer equipment. With it, United Heroes League has been able to outfit thousands of military kids with top of the line gear. For example, in hockey, skater equipment is available for children ages 4 and up.  Families request the gear, sign for it, and when it is outgrown they return to be sterilized and re-issued.

United Heroes League has sent over 2,000 kids to some of the finest camps available across the nation. Through the generosity of Robby Glantz, Carroll Goalie School, the Minnesota Timberwolves, Twins, Minnesota FC United,  MN Vikings, Rink Rat 19, Cathy’s Power Skating, and many others, youngsters are given a chance to improve their sports skills at no charge.

United Heroes League has paid over $500,000 in grants to help with local hockey association fees. As we move into other sports, we expect this number to increase dramatically. Many service members are in a “Reserve” status until they are deployed, and this is a great way for United Heroes League to say thank you to the families who give us so much. Apply for a Grant.
