Minor Hockey Teams are a major win for the WJHA

by True North Youth Foundation @TNYouthFDN / Winnipeg Jets

Just one year ago, there were two WJHA minor hockey teams, both of which, worked incredibly hard and endured a season without any league archived victory and still kept positive attitudes. These players showed up to the games ready to give their best, even though all odds were against them on the scoreboard. Their families came out to show support, and brought cowbells and home-made noisemakers to rattle and cheer, even when scores were lopsided and out of reach.

Learn to Play Program strives for success

True North Youth Foundation embraces new initiative

by Jana Skover / InFlight Magazine

The True North Youth Foundation (TNYF) recently embraced a new NHL initiative for underprivileged children to learn how to play hockey. Children between the ages of 8 and 9 are carefully chosen by the school division to attend the program once a week for ten weeks at their local community arena. The children are provided with free equipment from the NHL over a ten week period and are also being monitored by Hockey Canada and Hockey Manitoba. Not only will they watch the children's individual progress during the program, they will continue to do so to see if they still skate and/or play hockey once the program has finished.
