2021-2022 Communities Selected + Partnership Announcement
May 19th, 2021
Carrot River, Langenburg and ‘Quad Town’ (Vibank/Odessa/Francis/Sedley) have been selected to host the Adam Herold Legacy Foundation’s Hockey and Leadership Development Program in 2021-22.
Each camp includes three full days of hockey and leadership development and are a joint effort between the Foundation and host communities. Communities provide ice and classroom facilities, co-ordinate registration and other support as required while the Foundation provides top level coaches, instructors and other resources for the two weekend sessions.
“We had a great selection of applicants again this year, so it’s gratifying to see so many communities interested in the work of the Foundation and what it brings to these rural areas,” said Russell Herold, Adam’s dad. “I think a lot of that interest can be chalked up to the positive feedback we continue to receive from the communities where we have already hosted camps so we’re very pleased with that.”
Initially, the Foundation planned to visit only two communities during the 2021-22 hockey season. But a new partnership with the Western Hockey League’s Prince Albert Raiders and Global Sport Academy enabled an additional community to be selected. Adam was a top prospect of the Raiders so the team wanted to join with the Foundation to host the Carrot River program.
“We were touched by this offer from the Raiders and Global Sport Academy to bring our program to an additional community this year,” Herold said. “It means the world to us that the Raiders continue to honour Adam in such a meaningful way.”
Thank you to all applicants and please apply again next year!
