Reading Royals News Release

Reading, PA - The Berks County Community Foundation is continuing to accept applications for the Royals Youth Hockey Fund. The fund was created to provide financial support for youth to participate in the game of hockey in our local area.

Youth hockey opportunities in Berks County include the Royals Youth Hockey Association's Skills Clinics/Lessons, Summer Camps, Summer In-House League, and programs such as the upcoming Learn to Play Session #3 beginning on May 25, the Junior Royals in the Delaware Valley Hockey League, and Body Zone Sports Complex's Learn to Skate.

Additionally, the fund contributes to a 'Slapshot Starter Kit' which includes a pair of hockey skates, gloves, a stick, and a helmet for a child to have the necessary equipment to participate in youth hockey. To receive the Slapshot Starter Kit, you may request it when applying for the fund at the link below.

"This fund is a great opportunity to invest in the Berks County community and offer a chance for our local youth to get involved with hockey," Vice President of Operations Dakota Procyk said. " Hockey is for everyone, and this fund is set out to help those who might not be able to participate. It is our hope that years down the line we will see someone who benefitted from this program play on the Royals ECHL team."

The fund accepts grant applications year-round.
