Central Catholic Vikings Hockey Family Supports Canine Companions

Canine Companion "Penguin" is an honorary member of the Central Catholic Vikings Junior Varsity team. Penguin goes to every practice, game and team event!

CCVHC JV player, Jack Sabo, and his family are raising a labrador retreiver puppy named, "Penguin," through Canine Companions for Independence (CCI).   As a part of the year-long CCI training process, Penguin will go to every CCVHC junior varsity hockey practice and game ... so far, he has a spotless attendance record! 

Penguin is the second puppy the Sabo family has raised. Those familiar with CCVHC may remember Penguin's predecessor, Coral. She was a mainstay of the Bantam/Middle School team. With all of the love Coral received from the Sabo and CCVHC families, she "graduated" with flying colors and is now in CCI's formal training program in Ohio.

Central Catholic Vikings Hockey Has a New Website!

The Central Catholic Vikings Hockey website has a new look ... and a new dedicated domain, Please explore our new site, which is in the SportsEngine platform, offer any suggestions and alert us to any glitches or other mistakes. Also, please pardon the "dust" as we continually seek to develop and expand the content to take advantage of our new website's capabilities.

SportsEngine, Inc., an NBC Sports Group company, partnered with the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation in 2018 to offer its youth sports technology platform to the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Hockey League (PIHL) and their member organizations.   PIHL and — as a result, Central Catholic Vikings Hockey — moved to the SportsEngine platform in summer 2019.
