Subway and the Halifax Mooseheads are bringing back the popular Herd Hat Program. This unique program is targeted towards Minor Hockey Teams across Mainland, Nova Scotia. It is designed to encourage , support and reward minor hockey players for their efforts and hard work they put in throughout the season.

The rewarded players are not always the kids that score the most goals but the ones who show pride, heart and determination, a motto that the Mooseheads have stood by since their inaugural season of 1994.

Players who are awarded the Mooseheads Herd Hat will receive the following:

  • Official Halifax Mooseheads Herd Hat – players can proudly wear this hard hat, sign it and display it to teammates and family in recognition of his/her contribution to the team.
  • Certificate of Merit –signed by Mooseheads Head Coach Dominique Ducharme, which includes a place for the coach or manager to write in the name of the chosen player.
  • Subway six-inch sub coupon. 
  • Herd Hat winners names will be displayed on the Mooseheads website on the Herd Hat page as  well as their pictures on the Halifax Mooseheads Facebook page. 

How does the Herd Hat Program work?

First, you must identify what qualities in your players that you want to motivate or improve. Is it hard work, effort, sportsmanship, leadership, etc. (these do not have to be skill related and can be very specific to each player) Choose a player to receive the Herd Hat every week.

The player will have ownership of the team Herd Hat until the end of that week
(perhaps this is done after every weekly game or practice).

The goal is to have every player on the team receive the reward at some point during the season. Each Herd Hat recipient can sign the hat the week they are in possession. At the end of the season, you can give the hat to one special player, to the coach /manager or perhaps come up with a unique way to decide who gets to keep the hat.

Finally, just have fun! That’s what this program is all about.
