WHY

Over 7 years ago, Kerry Goulet helped develop the concept of showcasing professional hockey down under with teams made of hockey players from Canada and the USA.  These players do not play together during their season but they donate their time to support his endeavour of raising awareness for concussions around the World.  Players are from various skill levels and leagues.  With the support of this tour we have been able to develop, in conjunction with StopConcussions and Shoot for a Cure for the Safe4Sports Prevention Program.  Malcolm Sutherland is our Director of Player Safety and Development of the program.

The Ice Hockey Classic team is pleased to have been able to support the following local causes:

  • Brain Injury Australia
  • Variety – The Children’s Charity QLD
  • Australian’s Women Hockey Melbourne
  • Camp Quality
  • Buccaneers
  • Lady Cilento Hospital
  • LGBT Proud To Play
  • Ice Hockey Australia
  • AIHL - Australian Ice Hockey League
  • Ice Factor - Adelaide
  • SouthWest Australia Hockey Perth
  • Sydney Bears

The Safe4Sports Prevention Program provides leadership and practical steps towards prevention by empowering sport organizations, sport administrators, parents, and players to become more aware and more actively involved in the process of making sport safe. Because serious sport injuries are multi-factorial, we as advocates of sport have identified the ability of each stakeholder to engage and become active participants in the prevention of injuries. The coach is to become the main advocate of safer sport participation; by building knowledge of effective play, demonstrating abilities to improve play, while nurturing a lifelong enjoyment in the sport. The Safe4Sports coach has tremendous influence on players, parents and the team’s various sport supporters. A well-prepared and trained coach affects a large number of individuals in a sporting community and can become a “Champion” of a safer sport culture.

Meet the 2019 Up, Close and Personal Team

We all strive to make this event a success.  This year we want to address the Up, Close and Personal Tour concept by saying that we will be hosting the games in smaller venues; thereby allowing for a more intimate setting.

Thank you,

Every business has its ups and downs, and we have had our fair share of both, but what stays tried and true is you, the fans, understanding, being supportive and making the players feel like home.

Thank you from all the Ambassadors and Alumni who have joined us on this journey.
