Sting Look to Pay It Forward Ahead of Return to Play
The Ontario Hockey League and Sania Sting Hockey may not yet be able to return to the ice, however in waiting, the Sting will continue to work on doing what we can to help make our community and our world a better place, one action at a time.
As stated in the Sarnia Sting Community Commitment it is our mandate to use our platform to help influence others to be the best possible version of themselves, and to lend a hand to those whom may need it.
Throughout the month of November and into the Holiday season, Sting players will be challenged by Management and other players to find an opportunity to "Pay it forward" in some way, shape, or form. An opportunity for players and staff to get involved in their community, donate/ pledge to a cause they care about or even something as simple as a random act of kindness.
Keep an eye on our Sting social media channels as we'll share some of the Sting Pay it Forward efforts and hopefully encourage our followers to do the same!
Dylan Seca, General Manager
Dylan kicked off the Pay it Forward campaign with his pledge to Black Girl Hockey Club & their "Get Uncomfortable Campaign.
The mission of Black Girl Hockey Club is to inspire and sustain passion for the game of hockey within the Black community, specifically with our mothers, sisters, daughters and friends.
To prevent exclusion in hockey based on race, gender, sexuality or ability in the face of institutional racism, financial gatekeeping and program access, the Black Girl Hockey Club provides education, scholarship opportunities and community spaces that will give Black women access to hockey.
Black Girl Hockey Club hopes by carving out a safe space for Black women and the people who love them, They can grow the game of hockey in communities all across North America.
