Below is the schedule of events and the volunteer form for the Skate-a-Thon. This event is not possible without parental involvement. Please email Missy Brokaw firstname.lastname@example.org if you can volunteer.
Shaker Hockey is off to a great start! We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and commitment as we progress through this hockey season. We truly appreciate the long hours that you give to not only your child’s development, but more importantly, to our whole hockey community.
We are going to hold our annual Skate-A-Thon on Sunday, November 2nd (NOTE NEW DATE) , with registration beginning at 4pm. This fundraising event has been vital to the success of our program. The money raised will once again be used to support the additional costs necessary to run the program - purchasing additional ice time, new goalie equipment for younger players, and additional coaching tools. They also support two tournaments for each team along with added instruction from the Ohio Hockey Academy for our Mite, Squirt and PeeWee teams.
There are some new additions to this year’s event that we hope will be well received by our young players. In addition to raising money to help cover the extra $10,000-15,000 of SYHA costs per year, our goal is to generate pride and excitement in our hockey players. We are providing your child with some ideas that they may use while soliciting pledges to help them achieve this goal. Fundraising is often a new challenge for our children, and we hope that this can serve as a learning experience for the kids and foster their self confidence.
We are also setting up some new incentives to reward those kids that are able to raise significant funds. First, we are starting the 100 Club. Each player that is able to raise a $100 and more will receive a t-shirt with the Shaker Hockey Logo and proudly displaying their achievement into the 100 Club. Second, we will have individual prizes for the top two fundraisers – each will receive 4 tickets to a Lake Erie Monsters game. And finally, the teams that are able to raise the most money on average per player will be rewarded with a suite to a Monsters game, accompanied by their coaches. We hope this helps build team camaraderie and spirit for our program and each team.
Also new this year – Bantams will be collecting donations for their participation in the Bantam vs. Coaches game, which will be held directly after the Skate-a-Thon laps at 7:15pm. All other levels will solicit sponsors for skating 50 laps.
Last, since it is a few days after Halloween, we thought we would have a station to collect extra Halloween candy that we can donate to Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.
There will also be some minor changes in the event schedule and activities. We are hoping Sunday will draw more players and families to the event. Included are the pledge sheets and bullet points for your child to develop their pitch.
Once again, thank you for all of your support and dedication to Shaker Hockey. We look forward to seeing you all Sunday November 2nd.
All of us at SYHA
Thank you to Caroline and Lee Weingart for hosting the SYHA parent meet and greet last Friday. Great weather made for a great turn out. We hope that everyone had a good time and that new hockey friends were made by all.
Thank you to all who played in and donated to the Golf Outing. The bad weather stayed away and we had a wonderful outing. We had 72 golfers, 14 hole sponsors and many raffle items donated by SYHA families. The Golf Outing is one of three major fundraisers for the SYHA.
We have a new SYHA hockey apparel provider this year. Rube Adler Sports (RAS) of Solon will be handling all our ordering of game uniforms, game socks, warm-ups and spirit wear.
