Hockey is not for everyone. It’s time to change that narrative. The Anthony Duclair
Foundation’s mission is to ensure that Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC)
children are granted safe and equal access to playing hockey in North America. As it
stands right now, that population accounts for less than 15% of all hockey players. Those
children, specifically, are severely under-represented when compared
to the greater North American population. Because of the current systematic barriers that
prevent minorities from participating in organized hockey, many of them will never get the
opportunity to participate or be exposed to the game.
We are committed to inspiring a new and diverse generation of hockey players and hockey fans by building the game’s reputation and making it more inclusive from both a cost and culture perspective at the grassroots level. By making hockey accessible and safe for everyone, we will strengthen our connection to each other, to our communities, and to our fans.
We want to be game changers.
