The Daily Brief



The Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation recently recognized the program's graduating Class of 2015. The event celebrated the players' accomplishments and their move to the next phase of their lives.  The foundation gave a $2,500 leadership scholarship to KU freshman India Ray.  The foundation was created by Philadelphia Flyers chairman Ed Snider in 2005 as his personal commitment to teach children important life lessons. Using the sport of hockey, the mission of Snider Hockey is to build lives and unite communities, helping educate young people to succeed in the game of life. Snider Hockey programs are provided at no cost and are focused on underserved boys and girls who otherwise would not have the opportunity to play, with an emphasis on character development, life skills, fitness, nutrition and academics.
