Lower Income Youth Hockey Team Needs Help With Fees
Organized by: Sarah Masterson
EVENT DATE Nov 07, 2014
Youth hockey is more than a sport, it is family. It takes dedication but the rewards are huge. Unfortunately, too many kids don't get to play because of the costs involved. I won't see any child turned away from the sport they love because they don't have the money to play! Our team has several kids that are struggling to pay their fees and purchase proper protection gear, skates and sticks. This year, we also have an opportunity to take the team to their first out of town tournaments! Some of our kids though, need help defraying the costs. We've gotten some assistance from our hockey club, a great deal from the tournament promoters and discounts on hotels, but we are still short. Our fundraisers at home, have not raised enough money. We have kids that are in danger of having to quit because they can't pay their fees, let alone help with tournament costs. ALL kids deserve to play the sport they love. These are dedicated kids who practice year round...sometimes 4 times a week. Please help me, help them!
