Community Action Connects Littleton

At DAWG Nation Hockey Foundation, we are committed to supporting the Littleton hockey family through our compassionate hockey charity. Our desire to make a difference in the community has blossomed into an important resource for Littleton families in need. In addition, every contribution we receive is fed back into the non-profit DAWG Nation Hockey Foundation.

The DAWG Nation Hockey Foundation started with a small group of adult hockey players who made a pledge to honor a fallen teammate. In doing so, we created something truly unique. As a leading non-profit hockey foundation focused on helping Littleton families, we are committed in their time of need. Our foundation believes in the motto play hard, play fair, and give back. Through our non-profit hockey foundation, we help deliver a positive hockey community in Colorado.

    DAWG Bowl XIII

    DAWG Bowl XIII June 21-25, 2023 Edge Ice Arena

    Our foundation began in 2011 with the first ever DAWG Bowl. Since that inaugural event we have witnessed incredible growth as we are blessed to positively impact countless lives as we bear witness to the incredible power of the hockey community. The DAWG Bowl has grown into a five day event in which we strive to include everyone. NHLers, Paralympians, college athletes, blind skaters, veterans, youth sled hockey and of course the beer leaguer, are all welcome! Each year we strive to provide an amazing experience will at the same time provide financial and emotional assistance to those who need it most.  

    This year, the DAWG Bowl is taking on a new theme of Donate Life in support of organ donation. Many of DAWG Nation's recipients have received life saving organ donations including our Operations Manager, Patrick Donnelly who received his heart from a heroic donor in April of 2023 after several years of waiting.

    The tournament features 7 divisions, over 50 teams, and a blind and sled hockey exhibition. This year's tournament is full for teams. Volunteer opportunities are coming soon!
