Recently the team participated in a tournament with teams from Colorado and California separating into three ability groups: A, B and C. Korth said the A teams, especially, were a sight to see.
"I just could not believe what was happening," he said. "That team could beat the J.V. teams in high school. I was amazed. I'd like to have everyone watch just once and see the caliber of play."
This team is adding to the many memorable moments Korth has had coaching: Taking traveling teams to nationals and to tournaments in Canada; helping host the junior nationals in 1993; and starting his own club, the Korth Rebels. All the while he coached several of his children and grandchildren.
"He gives a lot with very little compensation," Holmes said. "Not many people can do that."
Korth is happy to be a part of it all.
"I belong to the two greatest fraternities: the firefighter fraternity and the hockey fraternity," he said.
