Jr Mavs Custom Mouthguards

KCYHA is excited to announce our new Partnership with GuardLab.  We have worked with GuardLab to develop three customized mouth guards for each of our Clubs. You have the opportunity to pick your own design and add your name and number on the mouth guard to make it your very own. 15% of all proceeds from these premium mouth guards will be given back to KCYHA.

Jr Mavs Facebook Page:

We have also created a Jr Mavs specific Swap and Shop page on facebook. This is for Jr Mavs families to sell and buy equipment throughout the season. We know this sport can be expensive, so this is another avenue for our families to try and save money. We suggest meeting at the rink or at Bar Down for exchanges, but please buy/sell at your own risk (Jr Mavs are not responsible).
