Corporate Teams Needed

Spring street hockey fundraiser helps sends kids to summer camp

Kitchener – Are you looking to get out of the office for a fun team building opportunity? Get your colleagues together and sign up your team for Waterloo Region’s largest street hockey tournament – HOT SHOTS - presented by Family & Children’s Services of the Waterloo Region Foundation and support the Kids to Camp campaign. Much like the game of hockey, summer camp experiences build resilience and confidence, teach cooperation and respect and allow for new friendships, teamwork and mentorship.

Players of all ages and skill levels will face-off on Saturday, May 26, 2018 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. as Family & Children’s Services of the Waterloo Region Foundation hosts its 13th annual HOT SHOTS Street Hockey Tournament outdoors at The Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex. Register online for the Adult/Corporate division ($300/team) or one of five children’s age divisions from ages 7-16 ($240/team). Deadline for registration is Friday, May 18, 2018.

NEW THIS YEAR: The Hockey Hall of Fame will be on site with their NHL trophy tour, featuring some of the NHL’s most prestigious hardware. Mike Hoffman of the Ottawa Senators will be available for autographs and photos. The HOT SHOTS Street Hockey Tournament also features a street fair that offers family-friendly games and activities, barbecue lunch, and a silent auction to raise additional funds for this important cause.

The HOT SHOTS Street Hockey fundraiser raises money to provide summer camp experiences for children and youth served by Family & Children’s Services. This year our goal is to support 525 local children and youth to attend camp with help from funds raised through HOT SHOTS.

Participants are encouraged to raise a minimum of $100 each in pledges to support the Kids to Camp campaign. There will be fundraising incentives, top fundraising prizes, as well as team spirit prizes for most creative team uniforms.

“Every child should have the opportunity to experience the excitement of summer camp – it helps build resilience and confidence, creates lasting friendships, and teaches vital skills that many children may not have an opportunity to learn otherwise,” says Karen Spencer, Executive Director of the Foundation.

Volunteer referees are also needed and anyone interested can sign up online at: This is a great way for companies looking to give back through community volunteering. is distributed twice weekly; Tuesday and Thursday
