Reedville Elementary – Veterans Memorial Coliseum Visit and Tour
We got to hang our with our friends at Reedville Elementary again, this time at our place! Twenty elementary-school students came to the rink for a tour, Q&A session, and meet and greet with the staff. This opportunity allowed the students to ask questions and explore the possibilities of working in sports. Thank you to the students and teachers at Reedville Elementary for visiting!
We have completed our first round of our Tom’s Tykes program which allows children the amazing opportunity to try hockey for FREE for the first time. Tom’s Tykes provides hockey equipment, ice time and coaching to kids looking to experience the thrill of our great sport. Thank you to our friends at Toyota for their support of Tom’s Tykes!
ABOUT TOM GUSTAFSON: Tom, father of Winterhawks Associate Coach Kyle Gustafson, was the president of the Portland Amateur Hockey Association and was responsible for the youth hockey league which would become the Portland Jr. Winterhawks. After Tom’s passing in 2019, Tom’s Tykes was established in his honor to help introduce the great game of hockey to Portland-area kids at no cost to them or their families.
