Kruger Big Assist program is back and awarding another $200,000 to help hockey families in need. With this 2023 investment, Kruger will have committed $600,000 to hockey associations in its first three years, and this year, your hockey association could receive up to $75,000!

This season, Kruger will be awarding six minor hockey associations each a $25,000 grant (one per region, plus a Wild Card), and one of the six recipients will have the opportunity to receive a Second Assist – a $50,000 donation dedicated to supporting diversity and inclusion in their hockey community (separate application required*).  This means your association could receive up to $75,000! *

To date, six hockey associations from the Pacific-West region have received $10,000 in Kruger Big Assist funds that helped offset hockey enrolment fees for families in need. One of the recipients – Crowfoot Minor Hockey – was able to offer free registration to families who qualified for their financial assistance program.


Entry is simple and it only requires a few minutes to submit a brief written description, or video. Volunteers, coaches and parents, are all encouraged to nominate and nominations will be accepted until February 5, 2023, with winners announced by February 22, 2023.
