In The Community


Our Twins players, coaches and families are very active in the Pembina Trail Hockey Association area and the wider Winnipeg community. The Twins Executive Board wishes to recognize the following endeavours and to extend a ‘pat on the back’ to all involved. You make our organization better!


Peewee Manager (and Dad) Kevin Slobogian organized a Twins Day collection of used sports equipment for the benefit of KidSport - an organization that provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport. On Saturday December 5, as our eight Twins teams played their league games on the Silverstone Arena ice, Twins families, friends and neighbours dropped in to Richmond Kings Community Centre to give generously. Two vans full of various equipment were taken by KidSport for distribution to needy children in Manitoba. Thank you to Kevin, and to all who contributed to this worthy cause!


Minor Bantam presented a Cam Barker-autographed Twins jersey to Dane Hantscher, a young PTHA hockey player whose battle with leukemia inspired the team to collect funds for donation to CancerCare Manitoba (CCMB). The Minor Bantam Twins challenge all PTHA teams to donate and support CCMB’s Holiday Appeal. Winnipeg Sun columnist Laurie Mustard covered the story on December 19, 2009. To learn more about Dane and/or donate to CCMB, please visit www.cancercarefdn.mb.ca.


The Midget Twins lent a hand to the Salvation Army's annual Kettle Campaign, taking up a post at Polo Park Shopping Centre and encouraging Winnipeggers to make a donation to help the less fortunate. As part of their community efforts, the team also served meals at the Salvation Army during the Christmas week. See CTV News and Global News (go to 7:26 of the clip) for more.


The Female Bantam AA Twins felt like giving a little something back. Each player and coach donated a $10-$20 gift to the Children’s Hospital Foundation. The girls with even jersey numbers bought gifts for boys while the odd jersey number players bought gifts for girls. Coaches Andrea Keating and Stephanie Keith took the gifts down to the Foundation on December 21st, along with a holiday card and a team picture. Unfortunately, the team was not allowed to participate in any tours of the hospital wards because of H1N1 protocols at the time. The Foundatioin was very excited to see such young girls getting involved in a good cause and were very grateful. Well done, ladies!
