Minnesota Hockey has announced its scholarship opportunities for 2019. Minnesota Hockey is proud to support its members as they pursue post-secondary education with a limited number of college scholarship awards of $1,500.
To be eligible, players must be registered members of Minnesota Hockey teams or a participant in Minnesota high school hockey who will be graduating high school this spring. Minnesota Disabled Hockey will also offer a similar scholarship for its athletes to use towards personal growth and development.
Minnesota Hockey has provided scholarship opportunities to graduating seniors for over a decade with intent of assisting its members in pursuing post-secondary education. This emphasis on personal and development was expanded to disabled hockey in 2014 with the addition of a disabled hockey scholarship, which can also be used therapy services, rehabilitation services or specialized equipment.
The Metro Hockey League, which oversees Junior Gold hockey in the metro area, also offers a scholarship called the Wes Barrette Scholarship. The scholarship is provided each season in honor of the legendary Junior Gold coach Wes Barrette. Barrette played a key role in the development of the Junior Gold level and founded the team Wessy’s Boys which has been a fixture in the St. Paul area for over 20 years.
