Your Chance to Feel Like a Pro

Many of us dreamed of becoming professional hockey players when we were kids. Hockey Helps the Homeless tournaments are designed to let you realize that dream by treating you like a pro for a day. Over a hundred former NHL players have played in our tournaments over the past 17 years including greats like Mike Gartner, Laurie Boschman, Vincent Damphousse, Theo Fleury and Kirk McLean. No details will be spared in making this an absolutely unforgettable experience: 

  • We dress you like a pro in your very own personalized jersey
  • Each player plays a minimum of three games
  • Participants play alongside former NHL players
  • Participants actually dress in the same room as former NHL players – truly a once in a lifetime experience!
  • We feed you like a pro with a hearty lunch between games and we provide beverages in the dressing room and on the bench
  • Every room is stocked with first aid supplies, tape, pucks and water bottles
  • The event includes a fabulous silent auction with valuable prizes and one-of-a-kind memorabilia
  • And, we finish off with a formal reception that includes a fabulous dinner as participants are treated to some words of encouragement featuring notable guest speakers

Why We Play

Today, it is estimated that there are between 150,000 and 300,000 homeless people in Canada, with children and young families making up the fastest growing segment of the homeless population -- despite the fact that Canada ranks as one of the top 20 wealthiest nations in the world.

If you want to learn more about the homeless situation in your community, we encourage you to check out the websites of our Outreach Partners or make arrangements to visit and volunteer at a local homeless shelter.
