Friends of Marshfield Hockey, Coaches and Players annually give back by participating in community service through out the year. We feel strongly that community service opportunities are what makes our program and our players stronger, this also allows our boys the opportunity to connect with a Community that has given so much to them.
Our community service project this year hits close to home as one of our own Senior, Sean Feeney is currently undergoing treatment at Dana Farber. Sean Feeney, Varsity player for MHS Boys Hockey knows first hand how illness impacts not only the patient but their families. Sean and our MHS Boys Hockey Team hope to give back a little in support for all the children and their families facing these difficult challenges. Most families can spend Christmas together at home but unfortunately many patients and families seeking treatment at Dana Farber/ Children's Hospital are not given that luxury. Our hope is to give these families a small silver lining to hang on to, so join us with our Christmas for Kids now until 12/20/2014. Your donation of an unwrapped toy at any of our home games now through 12/20/2014, will go a long way to a child facing the fight of their life, lets help "Stick it To Cancer" by keeping the spirits up for some really extraordinary children @ Dana Farber/Children's Hospital

As you watch the Winter Games in Sochi, there are some valuable lessons in the short biographies of eight men from Minnesota who have risen to the top of their sport. Their growth from Minnesota youth hockey to outstanding performers in the NHL earned them a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team, and it is instructive to look into the paths they chose along the way.
Six of them played high school hockey through their senior year (two at Shattuck-St. Mary’s), while one chose the USHL and one went to USA Hockey's National Team Development Program (NTDP) in Ann Arbor, Mich., for his junior and senior years.
It is never too early to start to plan for college tuition. The Marshfield Friends of Hockey awards scholarships to deserving players. The criteria for the award includes preparing an essay that describes the lesson that the player has learned by playing on the team, it also includes being an active member in the fund-raising, participation in the community service projects, and being a team player. Please keep the requirements in mind as the years roll along and the fund-raising events and community service projects are announced. The specific criteria and deadline for the essay will be available at a later date.
