Become a Hockey Buds Supporter

 

The Hockey Buds Program is pleased to offer a unique opportunity for the business community and/or any individual to demonstrate their support of a healthy, active lifestyle and literacy for the youth of our Province while realizing a positive return to the bottom line through enhanced company/product awareness.

 

Our Hockey Buds Program is a registered member with the Newfoundland and Labrador Ball Hockey Association which is a non-profit group that administers the sport of ball hockey in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The Newfoundland and Labrador Ball Hockey Association is also a member of the Canadian Ball Hockey Association (cbha.com) and Sport NL (sportnl.ca).

 

In 1999, the Canadian Ball Hockey Association became an Associate Member of Hockey Canada (hockeycanada.ca) to foster the growth of street hockey in Canada.

Our program is a great initiative to promote literacy in a fun way while also promoting a healthy active lifestyle. We have two age categories – 3 to 5 yr olds and 6 to 8 yr olds, with our 3 to 5 yr olds sessions using a variety of fun games with lots of physical activity and our 6 to 8 yr olds sessions designed more with drills and mini games. Both sessions end with a Storytime circle where a portion of a book is read.

 

Since our trial launch in the fall of 2018 where 11 participants registered for our program we have had approx. 300 participants go through our program. Our program runs three times a year – fall, winter and spring.

 

We have a committed team of experienced staff and a solid program that continues to grow to provide the best program possible without losing the original idea of fun first for the children.
