"Live Like A Saint" Educational Program

The Dubuque Fighting Saints have partnered with Two by Two Character Development for the team's "Live Like A Saint" educational program presented at local area schools. The Fighting Saints and Two by Two have teamed up to create a program for local schools that promotes character traits, such as knowledge, kindness, respect, responsibility, and teamwork, all while helping inform students about the game of hockey and the importance of physical education.

Dubuque Youth Hockey Association

The Fighting Saints and the Dubuque Youth Hockey Association entered a partnership in the summer of 2012. The youth organization changed the name of its travel teams from the Stars to the Jr. Saints with the partnership, and in turn, the Fighting Saints provided jerseys, socks, and warmups for the travel teams last season. During the season, DYHA players take the ice at Fighting Saints games, and support the team with the purchase of tickets for group nights at the rink. Fighting Saints players and coaches provide training to DYHA and are on the ice with the youth players weekly. 

Housing Families

The Fighting Saints organization is looking for comfortable housing situations for our players with families that demonstrate a well-balanced family-oriented life style. We would like families within reasonable travel distance from the Mystique Community Ice Center. Host Families are a vital part of the hockey experience for our young players. A good host family impacts the player on and off the ice. Many players remain in contact with their host families long after they have moved on in their career.
