Hockey Is For Everyone
The Hockey is for Everyone initiative is a component of
"The Biggest Assist Happens off the RINK," the National Hockey League's
social responsibility program that builds on the League's long-standing
tradition of addressing important social issues in North America and
around the world.
Hockey is for Everyone provides support and unique programming to non-profit youth hockey
organizations across North America that are committed to offering
children of all backgrounds opportunities to play hockey. The
initiative is supported by NHL member clubs, players, NHL alumni, and
fans. To date, Hockey is for Everyone has exposed close to 45,000 boys and girls to unique hockey experiences.
To celebrate this initiative, the National Hockey League hosts the annual Hockey is for Everyone Month in February. The league-wide initiative includes numerous activities
to promote the diversity of the game that involve our clubs, players,
alumni, fans, and grass-roots diversity programs, all with the goal of
raising awareness and celebrating the growth of the game.
