MLHS Wants To Sponsor A Tyke Team

MLHS Wants To Sponsor A Tyke Team

147
North Toronto Hockey Association

Maple Leafs Hot Stove has been approached by a parent of my Nephew’s Hockey Team seeking out a team sponsor(s). After speaking with Alec, we thought it would be a cool idea to see if the MLHS community would like to join in and sponsor the North Toronto Tyke Select Team.

We will feature a write up on the progress of the team and players, as provided, and we can track the players here. Obviously, we’ll respect the young player’s anonymity and follow them with last names only or in a similarly anonymous way. Alec and I have started the bidding off and hope that you can join in and help some young players enjoy the gift of playing hockey, while making sure that none of them become: A) Montreal Canadiens fans or B) Ottawa Senators fans.

We hope you will join in and share in their joy as we track the season of the young 6 year olds. Follow along while they learn the game, make friends and create lifelong memories.

Every little bit helps, and no donation is too small.

***We are hoping to sponsor the away jerseys for the team, with the MLHS logo on it. ***

Is this team a house league team or a travel team?

Current Cap Space  $1 ,996 (13F-7D-2G)


-Trevor Smith

-McClaren

+Raymond at $925

+Devane at $701 same as Frazrer McClaran

=13F and $1620 cap space

-Holzer

+ Bodie or Brennan

Liles waived  worst case and no one picks up and we gain only $950 on cap

=6D and $2,757 cap Space to sign Franson to go to 7D  (if Raymond rumour of $925 is accurate)

IF Franson won't do $2,757 for 2 yr-Cowen got $4.1 for 4yr)---somehow get Calgary  or the Ducks  to trade for Franson if we take $1.0 back in salary and even  add in a prospect maybe--or do the Minny deal proposed by Cameron

How big is this MLHS logo going to be? And does this mean we'll have a bunch of 6 year olds joining the community and posting here?

This is a nice idea Alec and I'll gladly contribute

Just a suggestion for next year if you are still so inclined

There are programs for kids that cant afford proper equipment that are excellent to support

The group travels around to everything from large second hand sales to Sporstcheck/National buying up used skates etc for peanuts to help get kids on the ice

From experience,there are always a couple of kids on each team where you know Mom/Dad can barely afford to pay the dues,and it shows in undersized,unsharpended skates, pads, helmets etc

I keep an Edge Again/hand sharpener on hand for these types who often show up with burred blades,and try to hustle equipment wherever possible to get them up to speed... and safe

We also raise funds to sponsor a Christmas Family every year where I get to make my speech reminding how lucky they all are

Anyway,great job and food for thought!

Cheers

I was speaking to a guy the other night who's kid is 6 and they have a 103 games lined up this year so far and they play every single weekend. Crazy.  My first year of hockey I probably played 26 games of organized hockey and about 50 games of pond hockey.

@Uncle Otis  That's awesome. We should fund raise for that in the future. Send me the information some time.

Ultimately, Franson will be worse off the longer he stays out.  I'm a huge Franson supporter....love his game and feel he's a top 4....but he needs to get his ass to camp STAT!

He's always scoring first loads off the rack with skates etc...buys by the dozen!

You bet

I will hopefully see him soon...and do some web sleuthing too

@Loric76 

Ill ask for sure

I know their main focus are skates and helmets,the latter being toughest to find

A lot of people do the hand me down pass it forward within their teams/friends,but often that just saves parents $$ who could afford it anyway

@Uncle Otis @rustynail on the same note, do any of these programs accept used equipment donations?  Aside from the 5 year old using some hand me downs from the 7 year old, we're lucky enough to be able to afford new equipment every year and have some outgrown (but barely used) stuff sitting around.
