Who We Are
Our mission at 7Element is to provide a healthy mental outlet for our members, a sense of purpose to our members and to close the civilian/ military divide. 7Element uses the power of sports to provide a place for members to feel as though they are needed and to provide a median to close the division between those who sacrifice for our communities and the people who live in those communities.
7Element plans to complete its mission by helping relieve the financial burden that is associated with many sports. Whether through league fees or by providing sporting equipment, 7Element is dedicated to getting our members involved in the sport of their choice.
Whether a member of the armed forces or a first responder, our members pride themselves on the core values that have been instilled in them. 7Element Athletics prides itself in living up to its own core values of honor, selfless service and commitment. It is an honor for us at 7Element to give back to those who have given so much for our country and communities. We give back through selfless service to our members and commitment in ensuring our members are provided with the best experience possible.
- 7Element Athletics: will always place our members first
- will always provide the best experience we can to our members
- will never quit
7Element was founded by two military veterans, who found a common bond through the sport of hockey. Being a member of a sports team, can provide a sense of belonging that is like what veterans and first responders find while conducting their duties. The founders quickly learned the healing power that the sport of hockey has and realized that all sports could be beneficial to the mental health of both military veterans and first responders. Hockey has provided a sense of belonging to the two veterans, something they hadn’t had since their time in the armed forces. The founders were also introduced to an entirely new community through hockey, a community they otherwise would never have been a part of. The sport of hockey helped the founders to integrate back into a civilian community, something 7Element views as very important to the wellbeing of our members.
The leadership of the organization is in the dedicated hands of a nine-time combat veteran, who has committed himself to making this the best mission yet. Together, our board of directors, staff, and volunteers work tirelessly to serve those who have selflessly served our country and communities. The integrity of our organization is paramount and therefore those who represent our organization are as honorable and as noble as our mission and the people we serve.
