Mentor Youth Hockey Sponsorship Program
Another hockey season is quickly approaching and the Mentor Youth Hockey Booster Club (MYHBC) is asking for your support for the upcoming hockey season. Many children ages 6-15 take part in Lake County’s only youth travel hockey program.
Mentor Hockey continues to grow strong with help from individuals and companies within our community. The Mentor Youth Hockey Booster Club continues our mission to support youth hockey and to instill the following values within our participants:
- Respect for Individuals
- Pursuit of Excellence
Your sponsorship contribution to our program will help supplement costs for participants and provide valuable support for special clinics and most importantly reduce fees for valuable ice time.

There are levels designed for Family, Grandparents, & Friends as low as $25 and levels for businesses. Simply select a level of support, complete the enclosed form and mail with payment by August 31, 2013. Hockey is great excercise and helps the kids stay happy & healthy.
