Returning Sledge Hockey Families,

We hope you all enjoyed the 2022-2023 season! Our hope is that you all plan to join us in the fall. We would be happy to receive any feedback from you that could make your sledge experience better in coming years. Please reach out to any member of the executive with any concerns or suggestions.

Thankfully, Covid restrictions were lifted and we were able to begin fundraisers again. We do have a little catching up to do and want to thank all of you for your participation. This coming season we will be holding everyone’s favourite fundraiser….THE LOONIE AUCTION!!!

This will take place in November 2023 so we are asking everyone to please use the time off over the summer to take the letter attached to find a prize donation. If each family could donate just one or two prizes it would make this fundraiser very successful. It is a lot of work for just a few people to go around asking for donations but if we all pitch in it is much easier to organize.

For those of you who have not had the pleasure of experiencing this event, we offer our guests the opportunity to win some great prizes (gift cards, gift baskets and other items) for just $1 or $2. It is always a really fun time and we typically make a great profit. Many businesses are willing to donate a gift card or item as long as you provide proof of the event. That is why we have attached the donation letter. Please feel free to print as many as needed and hand out or email to your local businesses or anywhere you frequently visit. 

We are asking that every family provide their donations at registration time. It is so important that everyone participate in this fundraiser, even if you will not be attending the event. The reason for this is to keep registration costs from increasing. The city increased ice rental costs and OSHA has increased insurance rates and tournament fees. These are all expenses which are covered in your registration fees. Without fundraising, our registrations fees would be much higher.

If you prefer to offer a monetary donation to go towards prizes you may submit this at the time of registration. Any fundraising questions or concerns can be forwarded to Denise Hierlihy at [email protected]

Please have a safe and fun Summer. We can’t wait to see you all next season!

Kindest regards,

The Hamilton Sledge Hockey Association
