SHA Announces $200,000 MHA Matching Grant Program
By Hockey Saskatchewan
April 16th, 2021 - The Saskatchewan Hockey Association (SHA) is proud to announce the creation of the Minor Hockey Association (MHA) Matching Grant Program. This one-time opportunity is being offered to the two-hundred registered MHAs across the province. A total of $200,000 has been allocated by the SHA towards the grant program, which will see each MHA be eligible to receive up to $1000.00.
“We understand that the past twelve months have been especially tough on our associations. As an organization, we felt this was a way to help associations recoup costs incurred with the introduction of Cross-Ice at the Under-7 and Half-Ice at the Under-9 age groups, along with other capital expenditures in the area of development.”
- Kelly McClintock, General Manager
To be eligible, each association must submit receipts through an online form which will open on May 1, 2021. The receipts must indicate a purchase made by the association for player development equipment such as half-ice boards, portable bumper pads, on-ice coaching aids (ie. mini-nets, stickhandling apparatuses and or shooter tutors). SHA will then match the amount spent by each association up to a maximum of $1000.00 The purchases can be pre-dated from May 2017 up until the closing date of August 31, 2021.
