Minnesota Special Hockey Players and Families: As summer ends, the Hockey Season is getting geared up! One of the highlights of our year is the ability for MN Special Hockey players and families to participate in the MN Disabled Hockey Night at a Wild game in St. Paul. In addition, this night is also a GREAT fund raising opportunity for MN Special Hockey via our support of program sales. We have several opportunities for MN Special Hockey players and families to participate and volunteer. All people participating will also get free tickets to this game!
Date: Thursday September 27th. Where: EXCEL Energy Center, St. Paul, MN.
What we need:
1. We are in need of approx. 40 volunteers to sell programs at this event. We need a combination of players and non-players (including adults!) Selling programs is a lot of fun. Once completed, you get to sit down and enjoy the rest of the game!
2. Once again, MN Special Hockey will be showcased via a short exhibition game to be played in between the 2nd and 3rd period. For this we will need 12 players and 3 coaches.
Next Steps: Please respond back to me if you can volunteer to help out this event. Please also note if you are interested in skating (players and coaches) in between periods. Once all volunteers have been gathered, we will be putting together a list of those that will be skating. In the event we have more than 12 players wanting to skate, the criteria we will us to select the skaters will be as follows:
1. If they did not skate at this event last year.
2. If they have never skated at this event in prior years
3. Draw names from a hat.
Last year we were able to accommodate everyone that wanted to skate, so I am hopeful we can do the same again this year.
Please let me know if you can join us for this fun night at the MN Wild!
