The Electric City Maroon & White is a registered not for profit charity without major sponsorship. We try to keep hockey affordable for our players and families but this can be financially difficult with ice rental, player insurance and travel costs. The majority of our older members are on fixed incomes and require transportation assistance to all of our away games and events. The majority of our special needs opponents are located in the GTA and elsewhere and although it is not required that we have to play other teams it not only give our players the opportunity to meet and befriend other special needs athletes both on and off the ice. The whole experience of being with your friends, eating together, laughing and joking along the way and talking about the game afterwards is massive for the inclusion and friendship aspect!
The team also takes part in a yearly tournament and for much of our team this is out of reach financially. We're proud to assist those that need help with hotels and travel expenses.
Our mission statement begins with Everyone Plays which we firmly stand behind as no one is turned away if they do not have the ability to pay. Period.
