Tim Horton's, THANK YOU!
Tim Horton's is the league's #1 sponsor for our Rookies and our Youth League!
There is other opportunity for local sponsors to assist in our older youth, high school and men's divisions. Jersey's, board ads, and online resources are a way for sponsors to promote to the community.
We always have parents eager to help out on the rink and get involved teaching rookies. Sometimes parents might have a bit more fun than the players. Complete the coaching information on the registration form if you want to help volunteer for rookies. Promoting a positive environment and teaching sportsmanship, respect, and having fun are most important.
