The San Jose Sharks are excited to announce that the FinAtical Kids Club, which made its debut in December of 2005, has officially sold out!
Nearly 500 young hockey fans showed their passion for the Sharks by signing up for the team’s first kids-only (16-and-under) club. With the $14.95 membership, FinAtical Kids Club members received the Sharks 2005-06 yearbook, a puck signed by S.J. Sharkie, hockey stick thunderstix, a kids club backsack, a pencil, temporary tattoo and stickers. In addition, members also received newsletters, a membership card and certificate, a coupon to the Sharks store and an opportunity to win autographed memorabilia through raffles.
In March, the FinAtical Kids Club hosted a skate party at Logitech Ice at San Jose. Over 150 members and their guests joined kids club spokesfish S.J. Sharkie in taking to the ice. Members were given a special discounted rate of $5 and invited up to Stanley’s Sports Bar following the 1½ skate session for a raffle to win autographed Sharks items and to watch the Sharks game vs. Minnesota.
Maybe more impressive than the number of members the FinAtical Kids Club has collected in its first year is the location of these members. While most members reside in and around the Bay Area, there are more than a handful of members who live outside the borders of California. In fact, the FinAtical Kids Club boasts members in 12 different states (California, Colorado, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Washington) and two different countries (Canada and the United States), proving that Sharks fans are all over the map!
