Grand Valley Amateur Hockey Association is pleased to announce our new partnership and sponsor of our Learn To Play, Cross-Ice, and Mites hockey programs. Tim Hortons and the Timbits Minor Sports Program will be the featured sponsor of the hockey programs for ages 4-9 at the Griff’s Georgetown formally Georgetown Ice Center.
Timbits Minor Sports Program has been supporting youth sports programs since 1982 and the Grand Valley Amateur Hockey Association is excited for this new partnership. Our emphasis has always been about skill development and having FUN! This make us a great fit for the TIMBITS program, where the first goal is having fun!
Griff’s Georgetown Hockey Director, Jack Williams says “this partnership will help us bring the game to more kids in the community and boost an already growing hockey program at Georgetown.”
All the Learn to Play, Cross-Ice and Mites will receive TIMBITS hockey jerseys and each player wearing a Tim Bits jersey will be able to get 10 free timbits after each Saturday skate, just wear your jersey and collect.
In addition, Tim Hortons will be on hand at several of our events throughout the coming season at Griff’s Georgetown. Who doesn’t love a coffee and doughnut truck ;)?
The Timbits Minor Sports Program is a community-oriented sponsorship program that provides opportunities for kids aged four to nine to play house league sports. The philosophy of the program is not based on winning or losing, but on learning a new sport, making new friends, and just being a kid.
Tim Hortons currently supports more than 300,000 children on teams in hockey, soccer, ringette, lacrosse, softball and baseball leagues in Canada and the United States. Our sponsorship includes jerseys, coaching tools, participation medals and a local “Timbits Jamboree” to help kick off, or wrap up each season.
Adding to the fun, Timbits teams are often invited to attend Canadian Hockey League (CHL), National Hockey League (NHL) and Major League Soccer (MLS) games to catch the action and showcase their skills between periods.
