The Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup is back! This year the program is rallying the hockey community together to make hockey more inclusive than ever.
Over the last six years, the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup has recognized thousands of players from across Canada for good deeds performed in their communities. In 2021 Canmore’s U13 Eagles finished in the top three nationally in the Good Deeds Cup, earning $5,000 towards supporting Rocky Mountain Adaptive – an organization which removes barriers in sport and recreation for those living with physical and cognitive disabilities.
This season, Hockey Canada/ Hockey Alberta registered U11, U13, or U15 teams can make a shift change to win $100,000 for a Canadian charity by getting more people from all backgrounds and abilities into the game we love, so more people have the chance to play.
Ideas for initiatives include:
- Making hockey more adaptive.
- Getting more BIPOC players involved in the game.
- Getting more young women involved in the game.
- Making more equipment accessible.
To submit your team’s pitch:
- Ensure your hockey team is U11, U13 or U15 and registered with Hockey Canada/ Hockey Alberta.
- Rally your team together for a brainstorming session to decide on the best Good Deed to Shift Change in your community. Have your Good Deed approved using the pre-approval form.
- Do the Good Deed and rally your community together! Make sure to record the progress. We want to see a 30-60 second video of your Good Deed in action.
- After receiving your approval from Hockey Canada, submit your video link and share your entry on your team’s social networks so that we can cheer you on!
Entries submitted by January 6 are eligible for early bird prizes. Deadline for submissions is February 1.
