RE:              MINOR HOCKEY WEEK 

This year’s theme for Minor Hockey Week in Newfoundland and Labrador is “Hockey is for the Fun of It” and Minor Council is excited to invite all associations to participate in a contest to celebrate the fun of the sport we all love.

Associations are asked to submit a plan for how they will bring this theme to their players and families in an event that truly focuses on FUN! This can be for your entire association or a particular group-it really depends on what works best for you. Plans can be submitted in any form you choose-written, video, digital-we’re hoping to see some creativity!

We ask that you limit your submissions to one per association and that they be no longer than 5 minutes (visual) or one page (written). Please submit all entries to your Area Member by Tuesday, November 7th for review. Each Area Member will then select one submission to enter for the grand prize of $1000.00 to help in hosting your event! All finalists will receive $250.00 and will have their entries featured on our webpage.

We know you are doing so many great things-let’s show it off and find out who gets the bragging rights as the First Annual Minor Hockey Week Contest winner complete with a trophy to display at your arena. Let the fun begin!

Yours in Hockey,

Leigh Ann Ryder
