The Mooretown Lady Flags Girls Hockey Association has teamed up with St. Clair Child & Youth Services
in support of the "Face Off For Mental Health"
campaign among hockey associations across Sarnia-Lambton.
We are participating in this important county wide campaign to raise awareness of mental health issues for children and youth.
It is a fact that 1 in 5 children are struggling with a mental health issue. That is one player on every line, approximately 3-4 players on any given team.
So here is what we are going to do ..... November is Mental Health Awareness Month for our girls!
We have chosen the weekend of November 10th & 11th
to wrap our sticks in green in support of Mental Health Awareness at our arena & in our community. This will serve as a visual reminder for our players, coaches, fans and executive. If any players want to wear green laces in November this would also be great.
St. Clair Child & Youth Services will be set up at our arena on the 10th and 11th to provide information to parents and answer any questions. They also have a fun surprise for the kids planned!
All players and coaches will be given Face Off For Mental Health helmet stickers as well as pins for their jackets. The Mooretown Lady Flags will be collecting donations in support of this campaign all weekend. Please be sure to donate to this great cause when you come to cheer on the girls!
By starting this conversation within our arena, it will help raise awareness and stop the stigma surrounding mental health.
The green tape will be supplied by our association and distributed to coaches soon.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact Mooretown Lady Flags Director of Communication, Kaylen Burgess
Thank you for your participation in this event! Let's get the conversation started!
