Helps Anybody and Everybody | Philosophy: “Can’t Promote If You Withhold”
The Korth Rebel Foundation (KRF) mission is to help children play hockey, train high school level team captains, and train coaches. We accomplish this through the planning of free skate events where kids learn the most basic skills, paying registration fees, and paying for equipment through scholarships, as well as training current and potential team captains in leadership skills needed to succeed in the sport.
KRF also helps coaches by assisting with the financial requirements to attend seminars and clinics. We are proud to be the home of the Salt Lake Special Needs Stars Hockey team and Utah Warrior Ice Hockey Program. We also are partners withother organizations within the state of Utah!
Korth Rebel Foundation is a nonprofit organization based in West Jordan, UT that was established by Don Korth in 2011. Korth Rebel Foundation is a non-profit 501 c 3.
