Hockey is for Everyone!
As part of their community initiative this season, the Waxers U14 MD team is helping to shine light on the importance of inclusion and the eradication of racism in hockey while bringing awareness to The Hockey Diversity Alliance (HDA). The HDA is a group of current and former NHL players that promote diversity in sport and help raise awareness to end racism in the game we all love. As an ethnically diverse team, they feel this is an important issue they can all stand behind and support with pride.

For the month of February the U14 MD team will tape their sticks with the “words of support” tape that was designed by the HDA and Budweiser.  As a team, we stand by the HDA and will #TapeOutHate
