Listowel Minor Hockey has been implementing a Grassroots Sponsorship program for years. The goal of this program is to remove financial barriers for families and give all children in our community an opportunity to play a game they love.
Our organization believes getting children involved at a young age is crucial for developing the confidence and skills that allow them to remain committed to the sport long term. This season, despite COVID-19, we have been able to offer safe options for children to remain in hockey. We understand the importance of children's mental health during these challenging times. These children are able to remain on the ice in small numbers developing skills, being physically active, maintaining interest in hockey and building lifelong friendships. All of these life skills become valuable for the overall contributions and influence they will provide to our community in the future.
