Holiday Coast Credit Union grant helps Wauchope Hockey Club junior athletes

Wauchope Hockey Club was one of the recipients of a Holiday Coast Credit Union Community Partnership Program Grant.

Through the grants, awarded in June, the HCCU actively and effectively provides financial and volunteering aid to not-for-profit community and sporting groups within our region.

Wauchope Hockey Club has used this money to improve the quality of its Junior Hockey Program by being able to update the training equipment for each of the junior teams (minky, u9’s, u11’s, u13’s & u16’s) so that each of the coaches have their own supply of training equipment and resources to be able to provide the best environment for kids to learn hockey.

WHC president Glen Pursehouse is positive that this update will have a great impact on improving juniors’ skills and also just promoting having fun and love of the game of hockey

“This grant has allowed us to support our coaches training programs where they no longer need to rely on having to share training equipment and can plan their sessions knowing they have everything they need and that our club will continue to supply them with as many resources as they require,” he said.
