The Kevin Murphy Hockey Fund Program
The Kevin Murphy Hockey Fund Program was introduced in 2008 as an extension of the Kevin Murphy Award, originally created in 1986.
Each year, the Kevin Murphy Hockey Fund Program awards a bursary to an outstanding youth who displays an incredible amount of commitment at the arena and in the classroom, and community involvement outside of hockey.
The program provides a minimum of $400 in financial assistance to a registered Hockey Nova Scotia player in the Bantam AA category of the Joe Lamontagne Cole Harbour March Break Tournament to offset the cost of a 1 week enrolment fee at a local hockey school.
Applications forms for the 2012 Kevin Murphy Hockey Fund Program are now available!

In 2009, the Kevin Murphy Hockey Fund Program introduced Phase 2 of the program which will support Nova Scotia arenas to purchase safety equipment and training to better position them to deal with catastrophic hockey related injuries such as spinal cord injuries, lacerations and heart attacks.
The Deadline to apply is February 29th 2011.
