The Stars Hockey Club is a tournament team based in Omaha. The Stars do as many local tournaments as we can per year. The goal of this team is to have fun on the ice without the Omaha hockey community drama. We set a patient and friendly atmosphere where people won’t be judged. We got this team going by playing in the 2016 Good Life hockey tournament. This team evolved from a group of guys that play in the MCHL. Today we have over 150 skaters involved. We currently have 3 divisions of skaters (novice, low and high intermediate).

Our club has 3 dropins a week. We have a that novice skate Thursday 5:45pm at Motto McLean ice rink. We have a Low Intermediate skate that skates Thursday 6:00pm at Ralston Arena. And we have a high intermediate skate Thursday 7:15pm at Ralston Arena. We have signup on our Facebook page for dropins. We do not want there to ever be more then 22 skaters for dropin. Here is our dropin schedule:

Below are our jerseys. The majority of us have the navy blue USA Hockey style jerseys. For just about all tournaments, we end up wearing the white USA Hockey style jerseys. That is due to the fact that just about all the other club teams do not have white jerseys. The black jerseys are our 3rd or alternate jerseys.

The team has a trophy case at Motto Mclean Ice Rink:

Stars Tournament:
The Stars also host a tournament each year in September. It is called the Stars & Sticks Hockey Tournament. We generally have 3 divisions for the tournament. In 2018 we had a beginner division for people just starting out. This is the link to the tournament site:
