Each season, Sackville Minor Hockey Association hosts a Hockey Pool as an extremely successful fundraiser.

  • Starting at the U9 Division, every team has a Hockey Pool flat fee added to their Team Budgets. 
    • These flat fees cover the Cash Prizes for the Hockey Pool Winners.  
    • Since the Team Budgets are divided evenly among the players, each player is automatically particiapting in the Hockey Pool regardless if you sell entries or not. Might as well sell a few!
    • Entries are $20, and they are unlimited. Every $20 entry your player sells is fully allocated toward your player's Team Fees by your Team Treasurer. No cost, no overhead.  
  • Every team will have a Hockey Pool Coordinator.
  • With Hockey Pool Scoring starting October 12, there isn't any time to waste. Tight deadlines shortly after teams are set.

The Hockey Pool is an excellent, low-cost fundraiser, and a lot of fun for those who participate. Those who dedicate some time to it can really take a good chunk out of their Team Fees for the season.

The following information was provided by the SMHA Hockey Pool Coordinator, Marc Lanthier.

The Hockey Pool has some rules that must be followed.

There are rules for everything in life; like speed limit signs, no parking, etc etc. People go over the speed limit all the time. Some get caught & those that do, have to face the consequences of their choice. 

In the Hockey Pool consequences of breaking the rules are: ejection from the fundraiser, loss of winnings (if applicable), or worse case, our SMHA Lottery License could be revoked for the Season, and jeopardize SMHA future lottery licenses. Our SMHA Families have come to love and rely on our Fundraising through the Hockey Pool and the Flyers 50/50, and it would devastating to the entire community should our licenses be revoked. 

  • Each Hockey Pool Entry is $20.00
  • Multiple entries are allowed
  • **NO TRADES**
  • Hockey Pool Entry Forms are collected by each team's Hockey Pool Rep
  • Team Treasurer collects payment from players, and issues one cheque for their team's entries
  • At least three (3) SMHA Volunteers must be present while Hockey Pool Entries are input to the electronic system.
  • Participants cannot enter their own picks
  • Participants must be from the geographical area where the association is located. 

TieBreaker Note: In an event of a two-way First Place tie, the 1st and 2nd Prizes will be combined and split evenly.  If there is a three-way (or more) tie for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place, the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Prizes will be combined and split evenly.  (Same applies for 2nd place tie, etc.)
