The setting is an inline hockey rink filled with elementary age kids from a local church in a city called Orangeville. The kids have been taken on a field trip to illustrate the Apostle Paul's words in Philippians about pressing on toward the goal regardless of seemingly impossible circumstances. The cast includes Jacob, who dreams of playing hockey for his middle school team, the Orangeville Crushers; Hat Trick, a confident kid who got his nickname for being a high scorer in their community hockey league; Madelyn, who just wants to be popular; and Molly, who seems to have a firm grasp on all details no matter how insignificant. Mr. Adams, the teacher who loves God, kids and hockey, joins forces with Mrs. Peterson, the kids' long-time teacher who is just a little wacky in her style of teaching and dress, but loves the kids and they love her -crazy and all. The musical recognizes the many struggles kids face today, and compares the inspiring true story about the 1980 US Olympic hockey team who overcame obstacles to achieve their Gold Medal goal with the story of how Apostle Paul overcame even prison to deliver the message of life in Christ.
