After 10 years of providing soccer, we’ve officially branched out to include Free Hockey!
Our goal is simply to give kids a chance to play another sport and introduce them to a game Canada is crazy about. We hope that playing a little hockey might make it easier to join in on the conversation on the playground or at the bus stop when everyone is talking about last night’s Oilers game.
To help with that, we kicked off the season by teaming up with former Edmonton Oilers Captain Andrew Ference. He helped us deliver the hockey sticks and jerseys as well as teach the kids how to tape. We used tape provided by the amazing folks at Pride Tape.
We are so thankful to sponsors such as Jumpstart, which provided all the sticks for free.
We are also incredibly thankful to all the teachers, principals and staff members at our 50 partner schools who are volunteering their time to coach and spend more quality time with the kids.
We also got the chance to talk about our program and partnership with Pride Tape on Global News and with the Edmonton Journal.
