Hunt brothers bring Roller Hockey back to The 'Peg

 

If you happen to see or hear a little extra activity around Maginot Arena in St. Boniface these days, chalk it up to roller hockey.

Seems Michael and Frank Hunt, a pair of ex-hockey players-turned-entrepreneurs, have taken over three floors of the old arena and are preparing to bring one of the most popular forms of hockey in the United States back to Manitoba.

The plan, according to Michael Hunt, is to create Central Canadian Roller Hockey as an off-season alternative for kids and adults who love ice hockey but aren’t sure they want to play the game 12 months of the year.

National Registration Day!

 

Dauphin, MB – Roller Hockey Canada has officially announced that March 1st, 2016 is NATIONAL REGISTRATION DAY for adult and youth roller hockey programs across Canada.

 This initiative was set forth during the 2015 Annual General Meeting to create an opportunity for the sport of roller hockey to connect across our nation for one day, with a common goal. As many associations have already opened registration for the 2016 season, some will also be launching their registration on March 1st with the plan that ALL associations will be accepting registration for this event.

 “We are always looking for new ways to promote roller hockey and engage the community that exists within our sport and I think National Registration Day creates an opportunity for us to create a little buzz around our sport.” Scott Hill, President Roller Hockey Canada explains. “The people who are involved in roller hockey are a dedicated and passionate group that has always been interested and supported programs being ran in different cities and provinces from their own, we are very excited about connecting them all together for one big day.”

 Roller Hockey Canada will be promoting National Registration day throughout social media and are looking for as many “likes”, “shares” and “retweets” as possible to help spread the word.

Although the name has been updated, the organization remains the same with Board of Directors and staff unchanged and no interruption to operations.
 

“We are proud to announce this change in our branding.  Our focus with this change was to create clarity for the general public as to what our organization does and who we represent whenever they see our logo or hear our association name," said Scott Hill, RHC President.

“We are very excited about the introduction of our new name. We believe Roller Hockey Canada simplifies our brand and makes it easier for members and non-members alike to quickly understand who we are and what we do.  It allows us to better support roller hockey players throughout our country and we look forward to seeing it on their jerseys, hats and clothing as they represent this great game we all love," added Hill.

"We have had our existing look since 2007 and are very proud of how that mark has been embraced locally, nationally and internationally.  Our name has been in place since the organization was founded in 2001 by Hockey Alberta and Winnipeg Minor Hockey, and was important in creating stability while the organization grew,"  Fleck continued.  "Our Board of Directors felt that this was a great time to update the name to reflect the trend of National Sport Organizations to simplify their branding to be more recognizable in today's often crowded sporting environment."
