NHL Provides Grant to Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation for After School Programming

The National Hockey League (NHL) today selected the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation to receive a 2009-10 Hockey is for Everyone Grant in the amount of $7,500, according to Ken Martin, Vice President of Community Affairs and Diversity Programming for the NHL. This grant will assist in the implementation of the ESYHF After School Excellence Program and the delivery of its nationally acclaimed life skills curriculum.

“The Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation is a national model when it comes to youth enrichment and diversity programming,” said Martin. “We have been admirers of the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation since its inception (2005). To be able to provide quality recreational and supplemental educational programming to over 2,500 children in such a short time is truly remarkable.

“The NHL is so pleased to be a partner with the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation and we look forward to working with them for years to come,” added Martin.

The Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation, in a unique private-public partnership, has become the official “youth hockey provider” for the City of Philadelphia. Notably, in the fall of 2008, ESYHF intervened to prevent three ice-skating rinks from closure forced by budget cuts. Under the agreement, ESYHF now administers all public ice hockey and skating programs at these facilities: the Scanlon Ice Rink, the Laura Sims Skate House at Cobbs Creek, and the Rink at Simons Recreation Center, as well as daily programs at eight other facilities throughout the City of Philadelphia and Camden, NJ.

Philadelphia Flyers founder Ed Snider created the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation in 2005 as a personal commitment to provide opportunities to those who would otherwise not have such options. The Foundation has experienced rapid growth and uses hockey as its hook to gain and hold the attention of its young people, bringing inner-city children together and resulting in positive youth development.

The mission of the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation is to use the sport of hockey to help educate young people on how to succeed in the game of life.
