Oil Country

Hockey Assist Program

Let's get kids out of the stands and onto the ice this year!




What is the Oil Country Hockey Assist Program (HAP)?

The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation (EOCF), KidSport Alberta & Sport Central have teamed up to launch the KidSport Oil Country Hockey Assist Program!

Read the full Press Release.

This initiative will support communities in Oil Country by alleviating the cost of playing ice hockey, or learning to skate, for kids from underrepresented groups. The reality is that hockey is expensive and the cost to participate can be unattainable for families.

Together, we will ensure that ALL kids in Oil Country can play ice hockey.

**Please note that in order to apply for funding, your player(s) must already be registered/registering with a minor hockey association, or ice skating school, within Oil Country.
