MMHA would sincerely like to thank the volunteers that have stepped forward to support the Rockets this year as coaches, assistant coaches, managers, and trainers. Minor hockey provides our young people with the opportunity to learn and grow in an environment which provides coaching in team play, discipline, exercise, respect and interaction with other players and teams from across our area. We are grateful for the support of our volunteer coaches and their team support staff who all make it possible for our children to participate in this activity throughout the winter.
Take a look at the Team Officials page.
The Mattawa Rockets gave back to the community again this Christmas by collecting donations of items to be wrapped and delivered to the residents of the Mattawa Nursing Home. Last year there was a similar undertaking but the recipients of the gifts were associated with the local Community Living organization.
The Mattawa Rockets solicited donations from the community in early December. Mattawa and area residents were very generous. MMHA and the Rockets would like to thank the community for giving so much.
On December 20th, the Mattawa Rockets, parents, and coaching staff got together, pizza was enjoyed by all and Santa spread some Christmas cheer!
And then, the wrapping of all the generous donations from the community began …
On December 21st, the wrapped gifts were distributed to the residents of the Mattawa Nursing Home by the Mattawa Rockets, parents, and coaching staff.
Thank you everyone for helping make our goal a reality!
During the month of December the Bantam Rockets were challenged to bring a canned food donation for the Mattawa Food Bank to each practice. Each time they brought a donation their name went into a draw for one of two gift cards for merchandise at McEwen’s. The Bantam’s collected a basket full of goods for the Food Bank and the lucky winners of the gift cards were Bryant Elliot and William Thompson.
Way to go Rockets !!!
