Certificate handed out at end of game

Shoeless Joe’s Sports Grill and the Ontario Minor Hockey Association have once again teamed up this season to reward minor hockey players with the Shoeless Joe’s Sports Grill Player of the Game Award.

This year, the Player of the Game Certificate will be attached to the OMHA Game Sheet that is filled out at every game. Coaches can find the certificate as the fifth page of the Game Sheet package and will provide one to each player on their team at the end of the game. 2017-18 will mark the seventh straight season that Shoeless Joe’s Sports Grill has partnered with the OMHA to reward players for sportsmanship, safety and teamwork.

The certificate isn’t always given to who simply is the best player on the ice. Minor hockey is so much more than who the fastest skater is or who can score the most goals. The Player of the Game Certificate highlights those who know what it means to be part of a team. Maybe they gave an extra effort or were always smiling during the game. They showed respect to the other team and were polite to those in the rink. Those are some of the qualities that are deserving of the Player of the Game Certificate.

Each Player of the Game Program certificate can be redeemed for a free Kid’s Meal (with the purchase of an adult entrée) or $10 off the cost of a meal with a table purchase of $40 (limit 1 per table, certificates will not be accepted if used during a team party) The criteria for selecting a Player of the Game is based on the player that represents the best qualities in sportsmanship, fair play and technical merit.

If you are not able to redeem your Player of the Game certificate at a Shoeless Joe’s location you can email their office to receive a free colour certificate to keep.
