The Whitby Wildcats Peewee Select team has committed to the community this year in multiple ways. One of their off-ice goals this season is to learn more about their community and how they can become more active members in supporting it. Not only are these activities a way for them to give back, but it’s a way for them to learn more about each other, experience teamwork in a different way, and build closer friendships and life skills. The team began with supporting a toy drive run by the local fire fighters and assisting a local Tyke hockey team with on-ice practice help throughout the season. It also plans to organize a food drive and volunteer at a local food bank. In supporting the community, the team's players hope to both learn from all their experiences, and show that hockey is about more than just what takes place on the ice.
