Imagine St. John’s CAPS Minor Hockey players participating in an on ice event with their teammates and coaches as they celebrate raising funds for Heart & Stroke.

The Top Fundraising Association will receive priority AED/CPR training session for its coaching staff as well as an AED to be placed in the association’s location of choice.


Hockey NL is bringing the community together to raise critical funds needed to promote healthier lives free of heart disease and stroke within our province. Currently Newfoundland and Labrador leads the country in heart disease and stroke related deaths, a scary statistic that with your help we could positively impact.

When your Minor Hockey Association registers for Skate for Heart, you will be committing to:

 Receiving AED/CPR training for your Minor Hockey Association (up to 8 staff/volunteers)

 Raising critical funds needed for heart disease and stroke related research

 Raising awareness for medical conditions such as ARVC which is a unique genetic heart condition prominent in NL that puts carriers at risk for sudden cardiac arrest

 Showing dedication to the cardiac safety of our children and our communities across the province

 Getting our youth and communities moving which is proven to have a positive impact on an individual’s overall health
