Founded in 1994, the Halifax Mooseheads organization has been actively involved in the community. Through out the regular season, players take time out of their busy schedule to appreciate how fortunate they are. The players take their roles in the community very seriously and enjoy spending time with their young fans. The players have been eagerly participating in regular visits to the IWK, Schools around the HRM, Minor Hockey practices, and various other Special Events and Fundraisers.
IWK-Health Centre Visits
The Halifax Mooseheads players along side with the Child Life Division of the IWK, on a bi-weekly basis, visit either the Childrens room or the Teen Lounge for the afternoon. The players spend the afternoon playing air hockey, coloring, playing board games, shooting pool, playing musical instruments, or just chatting with the children. This program is truly special and one which the players cherish. The players often arrive with small gifts for the patients such as hockey cards, t-shirts and calendars. By the end of the season, the players become very familiar with the children and friendships are built that last for years.
Throughout the regular season, Mooseheads players along with officers from the One-on-One program visit local schools. These visits are truly beneficial for both the students and the players. During these visits, students and teachers have the opportunity to ask the players questions. If the layout and timing works, we then try to play a little game with the students, and finish with some autographs.
Minor Hockey Visits
Throughout the regular season, Mooseheads players will regularly visit local Novice and Atom aged Minor Hockey sessions throughout HRM. Players will either surprise the group, or come and help tie skates, and either help the coach or simply jump in and practice with the team. These events are always a blast, and our players always look forward to these visits.
Special Player Appearances
In addition to the many community outreach programs offered by the Halifax Mooseheads, players will be making appearances at different functions and charity events to show support for various worthwhile causes. The organization provides players with their jerseys to wear so that they are easily identifiable as well as programs for autographs. If you are interested in having some of the Mooseheads at your special event, please fill out the Player Appearance Request application below.
