Through your support by voting online we were successful in our winning bid for a $ 25, 000 grant from MLSE Foundation towards Ice Hockey Program. A short update on our progress is as follows:
We have acquired hockey equipment for youth in the community. We have been able to support Grade 2 and Grade 3 students from Thorncliffe Park Public School to have opportunity to learn how to skate five times a year. We have 20 young boys and girls actively participating in the Leaside Ice Hockey School Program. We have a group of 30 youth that we take to Upper Canada College to learn to skate and play hockey. These programs enabled us to engage children and families in hockey that might not have had the opportunity otherwise. Children and volunteers were taken to their first Maple Leafs game and other interaction opportunities with professional athletes. We have developed a greater partnership with the broader community of Don Valley West through these programs and efforts. This in turn has fostered a closer relationship with MLSE foundation and helped secure an additional grant of $ 100,000 over the next three years for this community. MLSE has also agreed to help us develop a house league program where they will train community members to become coaches, provide equipment and expertise to further enhance our opportunities for more kids to participate and have access to skating rinks. Thank you to MLSE for their generous support!
