Club Hockey Canada Reaches OMHA Households This Week
Thursday, November 15, 2012
Richmond Hill, ON: -
Hockey Canada is excited to introduce Club Hockey Canada, a loyalty program for registered hockey players, their parents, coaches and officials, which will reach OMHA households in the upcoming days.
“Hockey Canada’s goal is, and has always been, to get more players participating in our game,” said Bob Nicholson, president and CEO of Hockey Canada. “We feel this is a tremendous opportunity to leverage the corporate partnerships we have and make the game more affordable and accessible. We want to maximize what is available to us, to bring down the costs associated with playing the game.”
Each season, more than 550,000 players, along with tens of thousands of coaches and officials, take to the ice in one of Hockey Canada’s 13 branches and thousands of minor hockey associations from coast to coast. Club Hockey Canada will reward their participation in Canada’s game by cutting down on costs just by doing everyday tasks, such as buying gas or dinner for the family.
What is Club Hockey Canada?
Club Hockey Canada is a program developed by Hockey Canada - with the support of the partner branches - to provide added value to registered hockey players, their parents, coaches and officials. The ultimate goal is to make the game more accessible to all Canadians by providing program members with exclusive money saving benefits where members can make everyday purchases and a portion of every dollar spent can be banked and used to help lower the cost of hockey.
Other features of Club Hockey Canada include The Hockey Zone, an online space for hockey fans of all ages to play games, watch exclusive videos and follow the latest hockey news. In addition, Club Hockey Canada’s online store will feature items from national brands, including gas and grocery gift cards, sporting equipment and Hockey Canada merchandise, with a portion of each purchase automatically going into a household ‘Puck Bucks’ account. ‘Puck Bucks’ can be redeemed to off-set next season’s registration fees or team expenses, to help Canadian families lower the cost of hockey.
Club Hockey Canada Support from Associations
Hockey Canada has mailed a welcome kit and membership card to approximately 1.4 million players and parents, coaches and officials. The main message and call-to-action for those who receive a package is to activate their cards online at www.clubhockeycanada.ca.
