Cash Back for Schools
The Coventry is proud to support Blaze in the Community
Coventry Building Society have backed the Coventry Blaze "Cash-back for Schools" programme through their TLC in the Community programme.
The hugely popular "Cash Back for schools" campaign is now into it's third successful season. Over the last two season's the Blaze have visited literally hundreds of schools and helped to raise much needed funds for the schools taking part.
This season the Coventry Blaze Ice Hockey team are once again going back to school to help promote the game of Ice hockey to children. We are looking to work closely with local primary schools to help promote the game of ice hockey and its attributes such as teamwork, healthy eating and sporting activity.
To encourage people (families especially) along to home games to join in the fun, we are offering schools in the local area a unique opportunity.
Schools are being given the chance to, not only attend a game at a reduced rate, but also the opportunity to raise some well needed funds for themselves.
This popular scheme gives schools the chance to offer reduced priced tickets to staff, pupils and their families, but instead of this just being an average ticket promotion the Coventry Blaze are actually giving money straight back to the individual schools.
For each adult, child or family ticket purchased through the scheme an amount per ticket will be winging its way directly back to the school for them to use as they see best.
Prior to the game the children will be attending, players will go along to the school and participate in an assembly, which gives the children the chance to meet them and put any questions they may have about Ice Hockey.
The promotion of sports, to children in particular, is such an important issue and being able to give the children the chance to experience such a fast, exciting and fun sport first hand is a great opportunity.
The Coventry Blaze have a very healthy youth Ice Hockey programme which we are extremely proud of, boasting around 180 players and eight junior teams playing in the English leagues. Perhaps when the children have the chance to come and see a game live, they may even be tempted to have a go themselves.
The Coventry Blaze hope the scheme will help schools to earn money for such valuable things as sports equipment and also help to raise the profile of one of the most exciting and family friendly sports in the country.
