Bauer & Bo Horvat Kick off Oakridge campaign to keep help kids in hockey! We have New, Free Equipment to help you keep your Child in Hockey
Submitted By MD Director on Tuesday, December 8, 2020
THE  NHL®, NHLPA, BAUER HOCKEY and HOCKEY CANADA have launched the Hockey Equipment Relief Program and Oakridge Hockey has been selected to be a donation partner.

If COVID-19 has had a financial or health impact on your family, your child is eligible to receive a free equipment to help keep your kids playing hockey.

Bo Horvat, the captain of the Vancouver Canucks came to Kinsmen Arena last week with Bauer staff, Oakridge's President Darcy Goettling, MD Director Rich Duench along with Oakridge players Liam and Julien to kick things off by delivering equipment to some local players who needed help. 

There is brand-new, Bauer skates, sticks, helmets and gloves available in various youth and junior sizes to fit children between the approximate ages of 4 to 12 years old.

Should your family meet this criteria please contact [email protected] and we will make arrangements to get the equipment to you.

Thank you @bauerhockey, @nhl, @nhlpa, and @hockeycanada. 

We look forward to keeping everyone having fun playing, while staying active and safe in the New Year!  #hockeyequipmentreliefprogram.
