FALCONS MAKE DONATION TO YOUTH HOCKEY
January 12, 2012 - The Springfield Falcons Hockey Club is very proud of its support of youth hockey in the Greater Springfield area. The Falcons have supported the Greater Springfield Youth Hockey League over the past 18 years through various player visits to youth hockey practices, monetary donations and premier sponsorship of post-season playoffs and championships.
The Falcons are very excited and very proud to present USA Hockey ONEGOAL hockey equipment sets to four GSL associations. These ONEGOAL equipment sets contain the basic equipment needed for any youngster who might be interested in learning how to play the game of hockey. Our four GSL associations have quality Learn to Skate programs and these ONEGOAL equipment sets will now allow youngsters, in the communities that these associations represent, the opportunity to try out the game of hockey at a minimal cost.
The Falcons recently made a special presentation at one of their home games with the four local youth hockey associations, Falcons’ Senior Vice President Bob Oliver and Falcons players Wade MacLeod and Cody Goloubef.
Representing the four GSL associations receiving equipment were:
1.) Mr. Steve Elkins – President of Amherst Youth Hockey along with his son Jonathan, a Squirt player for Amherst;
2. Ms. Michele Powers – Treasurer of Brattleboro Youth Hockey along with her son Nathan, a Squirt player for Brattleboro;
3.) Mr. Jim Chouinard (Shween-Ard) – President of Pioneer Valley Youth Hockey along with Pioneer Valley Squirt player Dean Kadonaga.
4.) Mr. Paul Labbe – President of Westfield Youth Hockey along with Westfield Squirt player Reid Hannan.
The Falcons wish to thank the Greater Springfield Youth Hockey League and its’ member associations, coaches, parents and players for their endless commitment to the great game of hockey.
