    We are excited to share that the District of Port Hardy has been selected by @ CTJumpstart to receive a grant from their Sport Relief Fund.  The fund helps community sport organizations like ours continue to provide access to sport and play for Canadian kids.  This grant will go a long way towards helping us to remove barriers for families of all status when registering their children in our Beginner Hockey programs this fall.  Children will be able use our hockey gear lending program and participate at a nominal fee, thereby making hockey accessible to all children.  This program is available for children from age 5 – 15 years of age and is inclusive to our community and demographics.  The goal is to provide children a chance to try a new sport without the financial burden on families to perchance new equipment.
