Hockey Season Kick Off/ Info Night

By JM 09/14/2022, 9:00pm CDT

Tuesday, September 27th at 6:30 p.m.

Sauk Rapids Youth Hockey will be hosting a Season Kick Off/Info Night on Tuesday, September 27th at 6:30 PM at Sports Arena East. This event is for ALL Sauk Rapids youth hockey families and any families that are thinking about joining hockey this coming season which starts October 1, 2022.

We will be having a drawing for a chance to win a FREE MONTH of hockey dues or a Scheels Gift Card. Must be present at the time of drawing that evening to win.

There will also be FREE FOOD available! We will be serving brats, burgers, nachos, and other items.

Get to know the Board. The first half of the event will include a "State of the Association" address and will also feature introductions to all of our Executive Board Members. We are excited to share the vision of our hockey association with all of our members! This will take about 20-25 minutes.

Level Coordinator Chat. We will break you up into your individual age levels and your level coordinator will be there to discuss any questions you may have and go over other important information. This will take another 15-25 minutes depending on the number of questions.

Rental Equipment. We will also use this evening to hand out RENTAL EQUIPMENT. If you are a new family who needs rental equipment, at no charge, this is the night you will size your player and leave with a bag full of equipment! (Except skates, a stick, and a jock). This is a first come, first serve, but we will have enough for all NEW players, if there are extra, returning players can request equipment as well. Joe Hartel is our equipment manager, and he will take care of you on the 27th!

New to hockey families as well as several prospective ‘new to hockey’ families we are excited to have to join us. 

As hockey parents, all of us were new to the association at one time and know exactly what it feels like to walk into a rink and be unfamiliar with what is going on and who anyone is, etc. We are here to let you know that the Storm hockey family we have is strong and growing and we really want to show the new members the awesome hockey family they have joined!

To emphasize the importance of this, if you are a returning family in the association, please show up and support our efforts by welcoming anyone new and showing them that they made the right choice to join youth hockey! Our culture can only be as strong as those who wish to lean in and support it.

We hope to see everyone there! It’s gonna be a great night!!
