Canadians Helping Develop Hockey Culture in Israel Looking for Equipment

posted Jan 7, 2012

 
The Israel Recreational Hockey Association is a registered non-profit sports organization that promotes recreational ice hockey in Israel. Now in its 9th season, activities include a weekly ice hockey game, an annual international recreational tournament, kids’ hockey clinics and a kids’ inline roller hockey league.
The 7th annual tournament – February 11th to 15th - gives a great boost to ice hockey in Israel and creates ice hockey goodwill ambassadors for Israel. The IRHA’s efforts are creating positive bonds between Israel and other countries, and have received wide press coverage promotingIsrael as a safe, exciting, historical, and modern place to visit.
IRHA ice hockey is integral to immigrant absorption, encourages youth sport, and positions Israel positively in the media and to hockey players from abroad who play with us.
The IRHA has been working hard to build an ice hockey culture in Israel. Hockey equipment is difficult and expensive to purchase in Israel. Help us collect new or gently used equipment, and we will have it shipped to Israel.
 Helmets, elbow pads, shin pads, gloves, pants, shoulder pads, cups, suspenders, helmet parts
 Children’s goalie equipment - especially Novice, Atom, Pee Wee and Bantam sizes
 Children’s and adult ice skates
Children’s roller blades
 Inline hockey equipment - goalie equipment, hockey balls
 Children’s team uniforms
 Pucks
 Referee sweaters
