Barons Floor Hockey Caravan
As part of their initiative to promote healthy living and team work, the Barons have teamed with the Schools for Healthy Lifestyles Foundation to provide a lesson about hockey as well as the importance of healthy living, being active, staying in school and working as a team. The equipment can be used by groups as small as 20 kids to as many as 80.
Oklahoma City Youth Hockey Association
Along with the Floor Hockey Caravan, the Oklahoma City Barons are proud to partner with the Oklahoma City Youth Hockey Association. The OKCYHA features the growth of the sport of hockey at the grass roots level. From the popular introductory program called Kids First, to the compeition at the highest level, the OKCYHA is a continually growing organization.
The Barons Buddies Program utilized an existing relationship with Special Olympics Oklahoma, a community partner of the Oklahoma City Barons. The Barons are active members of the community, but have three season-long commitments to different community partners within the Oklahoma City Metro area. While working with every member of the community is important, partnering with three allows the Barons to commit their personnel and resources to maximize the impact for everyone.

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
The Oklahoma City Barons have a special relationship with Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity and assist the organization in building a home each season.
