There are many ways to give to the Mighty Penguins!
The Mighty Penguins remains an all-volunteer organization. 100% of every dollar raised goes to directly support our players! Your support helps us purchase equipment and helps cover the cost of ice time. Like ice hockey, sled hockey is an expensive sport that involves unique equipment to participate. A sled fitted with skate blades is required for each player to sit in on the ice. Mini hockey sticks with ice picks on one end are used to propel a player on the ice. In addition, full padding and helmet are required for each player. The cost of all of this equipment is over $1000/player. Beyond equipment, the ice rental costs to provide players with practice and game opportunities is over $8,000/month.
With over 70 players rostered to multiple teams, we compete in tournaments throughout the United States and Canada. Supporting more players and more teams, awards our players the benefit of having more playing time at each level of skill. Together, our efforts will enhance the lives of disabled adults and children as we strive to develop character, sportsmanship, self-esteem, and physical fitness while enjoying sled hockey!
