Donate Equipment

We’re always looking for equipment for our players! As long as it is still functional (please, toss your own badly damaged or beyond-repair equipment), we can likely put it to use.

You can drop it off at one of our practices (typically at the Ice Plex – check our calendar) or contact equipment@barbarab45.sg-host.com to make other arrangements.

Youth teams – we’d love to receive items from equipment drives!

Fundraise for us!

Do you/your team need to do a service project? We’d be happy to work with you to set up and easy way for you to do a peer-to-peer fundraiser, and do all the tracking for you!

See our list of ongoing fundraisers HERE.

Much of what we raise goes to pay for ice time. We appreciate everyone’s support!

Help Us Out!

Become a Mentor

We need mentors of all ages to help with both our ice and street hockey practices. If you can skate, and are willing to put the spotlight on our participants for an hour, this may be a position for you. 

What does an ice hockey mentor do?

  • Work one-on-one with new skaters to help them gain confidence on skates so they can participate in hockey drills and eventually games.
  • Partner up with more experienced skaters to help them stay focused and get the most out of their hockey experience.
  • Do whatever the coaches need you to do – chase pucks, demonstrate drills, hang out at a sideline to keep pucks in, fetch water bottles – your job is to help make the practice go smoothly!

What does an street/ball hockey mentor do?

  • Work one-on-one with new players to help them learn basic hockey skills – passing, stick handling, moving with the ball.
  • Partner up with more experienced skaters who may need help staying focused and help them learn the game.
  • Do whatever the coaches need you to do – chase balls, demonstrate drills, hang out at a sideline to keep balls in, and sometimes just be a friend!
Become a Coach

If you want to get more involved in working with participants who are learning the ins and outs of playing ice and street/ball hockey, helping out the coaching staff may be a good fit.

What does an assistant coach do?

  • Lead¬† warmup and practice drills
  • Work with other coaches and assistants to keep the players motivated and focused.
  • Encourage everyone to do their best, and most of all, have fun!
  • Monitor and provide support for scrimmages.
Become a Sponsor

We offer our programs at little to no cost to our participant athletes and their families. We appreciate any support you can offer!
