THANK YOU TO ALL OUR SPONSORS AND VOLUNTEERS ON OCTOBER 13, 2021
Our first Shinny Night in Canada was a huge success thanks to all the sponsors, volunteers and families that participated in the games. We had 8 games of hockey and 1 game of basketball happening all at once with children aged 5 to 17. Happy to report no injuries were had and all the children made new friends, exercised/played for 3 hours continuously, laughter was heard far and wide and a fantastic time was had by all! We could not be happier by the results achieved in just a few short weeks of planning! Our communities came together in just 2-3 weeks, collaborated and co-operated with each other like a well-oiled machine to give our children a night to remember for all time! How many children can say they helped shut down the street on the Leafs home opening game to have their own game of Shinny…..
A HUGE THANK YOU goes out to all those that contributed their time, donated funds and lent us equipment:

Our Goals — We are Sport; We are Hockey; We are Canada! We need Canada and the World to know that our kids do not belong to sports federations and to governmental agencies! Our kids should be able to play, learn and assemble without condition. Our Shinny Night in Canada event is an all inclusive event; We will not participate in discrimination nor segregation! Vaccinated or Unvaccinated, both parents and kids are all welcome to attend our event. It is a well-known fact that COVID-19 has very little effect on our kids and they are at extremely low risk of spreading and transmitting it. It makes no sense to mandate any form of COVID vaccination on them. The vaccinations do not stop the spread nor transmission so it makes very little sense to mandate it on anyone, PRO-CHOICE is our stance! It is essential for the physical and mental health of the children, including teenagers, to exercise, to play sports and to socialize. We want to make it clear to Canadians, and to the World, that kids will continue to play, despite all the non-sensical measures that are imposed. The kids are united and are the future of hockey; the future of sports; and the future of Canada!
Have you had enough and would like to break your children out of their government imposed jail?
Good! it is time for you to take action! Host a play date; a sport tournament; a dance; a mystery hunt; a movie night; a potluck; host anything that families would want to participate in. Don’t wait for the Government to “let” you, just do it! Reach out to us and we can advertise your event on our site. Provide for us the details or a poster and we will gladly help you get the word out. Our children deserve some “normal” socialization in their lives, as do you!
