Canada West Coachlines
and The Daily Courier team up
for minor hockey bursary
It’s a national passion and the pride of a nation, but hockey can also be an expensive game to play.
Skates, equipment, even hockey sticks are not cheap, so Canada West Coachlines and TheKelowna Daily Courier wantto help ease the financial burden for hockey parents in the Central Okanagan.
Canada West Coachlines is offering a bursary to a player in the Kelowna or West Kelowna minor hockey system that willcover the early registration fees for the 2015-16 season. Stacey Spencer, vice-president of operations and sales, said that the company was looking for a way to give back to the community. “Hockey can be an expensive sport, and we were looking fora way to help people,” she said. “Our team has been talking about this for a long time.” Applicants are required to write a short essay or poem on why they love hockey and why they feel they deserve the bursary. They should also include a short biography on themselves. The write-up can be sent to The Daily Courier via e-mail (with hockey bursary in the subject line) at email@example.com.
“It will be judged by the readers,” Spencer said, adding Canada West hopes the bursary can make it easier for a child to play
the game and not have finances be a barrier that keeps them from lacing up. Terry Armstrong, publisher of the Okanagan Valley Newspaper Group, said The Daily Courier is happy to get involved with such a venture. “Kelowna is a big hockey town, with not only the Memorial Cup-winning Kelowna Rockets, but numerous minor teams that have done very well over the years,” he said. “If we can help a child play the game, we are happy to do so. Who knows, perhaps the next Sidney Crosby will come out of the Central Okanagan.”
