“We are delighted to welcome the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship as a presenting sponsor of the golf classic this year,” stated Tim Leer, Executive Director of the Hockey Alberta Foundation. “Holding the World Juniors two years in a row encourages youngsters throughout the province to play hockey, and the foundation has the potential to help make those aspirations a reality for every child in every town across Alberta.”
The IIHF World Juniors 2022 Live Stream will be held in Edmonton and Red Deer from December 26 to January 5, 2022.
“The 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship is pleased to sponsor the 2021 Hockey Alberta Foundation Golf Classic,” said Riley Wiwchar, Executive Director of the 2022 IIHF World Junior Championship. “As part of the World Junior legacy, we want to make the game more inviting and inclusive, and we want to involve new participants in the sport, which the foundation allows us to do.”
The Hockey Alberta Foundation generates money via events such as the golf classic to support programs that offer programming, improve development, and allow youth throughout the province to engage in hockey.
