PDMHA Good Deeds Cup Mission Statement
The Plattsville & District Minor
Hockey Association's Good Deeds Cup has been created to focus on giving back and engaging
with our community. The focus of giving is prominent throughout hockey, at all
levels, and we want to advocate for this with our children.
Hockey helps to foster and further
develop key life skills including teamwork, collaboration, discipline respect,
communication, and humility. As we work to support the development of these and
other skills for our players, both on and off the ice, the Good Deeds Cup acts
as a celebration of our community's warm, caring spirit.
Outline for the Competition
All teams have the opportunity
to compete for a chance to win the Good Deeds Cup.
The focus is player involvement,
so activities should be selected based on the age/capability of the team.
Player & coach involvement is mandatory for teams competing, parent
involvement is optional. Teams select the good deed(s) they would like to complete
- this can be a single event/activity or multiple components.

role in the Executive Board for PDMHA)

an active player for PDMHA)

scoring expectations are adjusted based on age.

There is one winning team (and two runner-up teams)
selected based on this scoring. Weighted scoring criteria includes:
