our history

The California Bears Youth Hockey Club a non-profit organization that is one of the oldest hockey clubs in California, first charted by the state in 1964. Our coaches are dedicated to empowering every player with the tools needed to reach their full potential, regardless of age or skill level. The Bears is a family friendly club that promotes sportsmanship and good citizenship in the community. While Bears teams have celebrated many successes on the ice, we are equally proud of every player who has tried his or her best and learned to be a good teammate.
