Hockey Manitoba was pleased to present Selkirk Youth Hockey Association with a cheque in the amount of $12,500 to establish a legacy fund in support of minor hockey in the Selkirk community. The presentation took place at the Selkirk Rec. Complex during the Steelers Junior A game on January 19th.
The legacy fund represents a portion of the proceeds generated from the 2009 TELUS Cup National Midget Championship hosted in Selkirk, MB in April 2009.
Peter Woods, Executive Director of Hockey Manitoba, indicated,"The tremendous support of the volunteers and Selkirk community was vital in hosting a first class hockey event. Hockey Manitoba is extremely happy to recognize these efforts and establish a hockey legacy in the Selkirk community for years to come."
Hockey Manitoba would also like to thank Winnipeg Minor Hockey Association and the 2009 TELUS Cup Host Committee , including Chairman Rob Cox, for their dedication and commitment to hosting a successful event.
The 2010 TELUS Cup will be hosted in Levis, Quebec from April 19-25, 2010.
