Feature Story

On March 7, Coach Jeff Carr of the Salt Lake City Moose (Western States Hockey League) presented Dream Academy Salt Lake City Mentor Coordinator Jode Littlepage with a plaque as a thank you before their game against the Idaho Junior Steelheads. 

Ms. Littlepage stepped onto the ice to receive her award accompanied by DreamKids Perla and Isabel. DreamKid Perla was selected along with Isabel to drop the ceremonial first puck.

2014 marked the second year of our partnership with the Salt Lake City Moose Hockey Team. The team players come to the center once a week to help with homework and play games with the DreamKids. The kids and players love playing 4-square. In fact it is not uncommon to see the game get competitive.  

We are looking forward to next Fall when the players return for another wonderful season.
