Grass Roots Program Continues
Another Powerskating Course has been implemented each Saturday for a 3 week period which began Saturday, Jan 29 and runs until Saturday Feb 12.  This is being offered to the Novice LL, Novice Rep and Senior Mite players for this time period at No Charge due to the support of our Organizational Sponsors as noted on the left hand part of your screen and under the Sponsor tab above. 

Thanks to the Organizational Sponsors who participated in the Listowel Minor Hockey Sponsorship Program, we continue to make an impact in the Grass Roots Program. 

2010’s Current Organizational Sponsors:

Tim Horton's

Ward & Uptigrove


Bustard Chrylser

Corley Sports

Creative Casuals

Listowel Technology

Listowel Kinsmen


And other independent Sponsors who forwarded funds in support of the program have been excited to hear about the gains in registration for the youngest of our Community. 

We have grown Mite (ages 3, 4 and 5) registration by almost double in just 2 short years entirely due to our Sponsors who gave the ability to reduce our Mite age costs to FREE for all first time registrants as well as provide financial equipment subsidies for all first time Mite age players.

The funds have continued to fund personal growth in this Development program as we now have the ability to provide a free power skating program within our Development program (ages 4 to 8).  This is the final component to the process as skating is a key skill giving kids both confidence and subsequently contribute to the enjoyment of the game.

Our Sponsors support will go a long way in continuing to enhance the quality and availability of hockey programs throughout our community.
