Sharks Distribute Free Glasses to Elementary Students

Sharks Foundation Dedicates $20k to Vision To Learn Free Eyeglasses Program with Partner Kaiser Permanente

by Sharks Foundation @SharksCare / sharksfoundation.org

SAN JOSE - Students at Selma Olinder Elementary were delighted today when San Jose Sharks players Chris Tierney and Joel Ward helped them try on their brand new glasses. The glasses were provided by non-profit Vision To Learn, which kicked-off its third year serving students in Santa Clara County by providing free glasses to 47 students from kindergarten through fifth grade at Olinder. Tierney, Ward and Sharks Chief Operating Officer John Tortora joined Vision To Learn Founder Austin Beutner along with representatives from Kaiser Permanente South Bay and San Jose Unified School District (SJUSD) to celebrate the project's success to-date and service to come in the new year. The children were also presented with complimentary tickets to the Sharks preseason home game on October 5.

In the coming school year, the new partnership between the Sharks Foundation, Kaiser Permanente South Bay and Vision To Learn will help nearly 1,000 students in Santa Clara County get glasses, including more than 600 in San Jose Unified School District. The success of this project has been assisted by a close collaboration between Vision To Learn and SJUSD.

"The district and our school nurses are excited to partner with Vision To Learn to help students achieve in the classroom and beyond," said Melinda Landau, Manager of Health and Family Support Programs for San Jose Unified School District. "Because so much of early learning is visual, our nurses made sure every kid who wanted a screening could get one."

Sharks Camp Update with David Schlemko

Mic'd Up: David Schlemko

Sharks newest defenseman David Schlemko gets mic'd up during Sharks training camp

  • 02:18 •

Hey everyone! David Schlemko here. I'm really excited to be a part of the Sharks organization and start my first season here in San Jose. Training Camp has officially started which means that hockey is back!

Training Camp has been really good so far. We are less than a week in but it's been filled with a lot of tough workouts, high tempo practices and team bonding. On the first day of camp, I got those feelings that everyone gets going in - those anxious nerves until you get on the ice and get your reps in. After the inital nerves go away, it's just like any other day. You're just huffing and puffing a little harder than usual since you're getting back into it. 

All the guys were great to me at my first camp with the Sharks. I've been down here for four weeks now so I've gotten to know them pretty well. I haven't gotten to know the World Cup guys as much, but they were here for a few days before they took off for Toronto. I think I've met basically everyone. I haven't seen Mikkel Boedker yet, but I played with him before. I haven't had too much time to hang out with everyone off the ice that much, but I did go golfing with Joel Ward and Micheal Haley - that was a good time. I've also started to get close with Brenden Dillon. He's a cool guy and I want to build some chemistry with him going into the season, especially if we are going to be playing together. Overall, it's a great group of guys and I look forward to getting to know them more.

What was your favorite memory from last season?
My favorite memory by far was going to the Stanley Cup Final.

Where did you go on vacation this summer?
I didn't go anywhere. I mostly sat back at home in Finland and saw my family and friends. It was a short summer so I was happy to be home. I also worked on my old Porsche I have back home. I fixed it up and drove it around.

Sharks Camp Snapshot is a quick chance to catch up with the guys from what they've done over the summer break to where their focus is entering Training Camp ahead of the 2016-17 season. 

Catch up with defenseman Dylan DeMelo below and see what he was up to this summer.

What was your favorite memory from last season?
Going to the Final was definitely my favorite memory. What an amazing journey and roller coaster ride that was. It was a lot of fun! As a kid you always dream of going to the Final, so I can't wait to get there again.

Where did you go on vacation this summer?
I went to Iceland for a week with my fiancé. It's a beautiful place with so many waterfalls, mountains and volcanoes that you don't get to see every day back home. It's a very unique place! After that I just hung out and got some things taken care of around the house. I saw my family and friends and got some work outs in.
