GREEN TAPE

This year, based on our funding, we are able to send Buddy Check kits to 1100 teams. All BC Hockey affiliated Peewee and Bantam teams will receive one. This will allow for approximately 100-150 additional packages chosen on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you’d like to fund a specific team outside of the Peewee and Bantam group, we will do our best to ensure that happens. Please make a request on this page and note your team/age group/association and any other specific identifying information. A lot of requests are coming in so make yours quickly! We will notify you by mid October if you WILL NOT receive a package.

THE TEAMS WILL RECEIVE THEIR PACKAGES AT LEAST 2 WEEKS BEFORE OCTOBER 26-27.

ANY TEAM CAN PARTICIPATE IN BUDDY CHECK FOR JESSE.

This season we are supplying kits for more than 1,000 teams. Because our funds are limited, we encourage other teams to participate, show their support and buy their own rolls of green tape and download the resources HERE.
