STIRLING CUP AVALANCHE CHARITY GAME DECEMBER 11TH, 2021

Hockey families-

We're less than two weeks away from our Stirling Cup December 11th Avalanche Alumni Charity game. The weekend will feature a 12U Skills competition with prizes to be awarded and the charity game Free to enter. We hope you can all make it out to what will be a fun, exciting event. The alumni will be on hand during the skills competition, John Michael Lilies, Ken Klee, Eric Lacroix, Yan Stastny, to just name a few. 

Please click the registration link Skills Competition 12U; limited spots available, so don't delay! (3:30 PM at Lewis Ice Arena)

Events include Hardest Shot, fastest skater, Shoutout, Accuracy shooting, and relay race! Your athlete gets to participate in all events!

Hope to see all our hockey families out to support a great cause!

The Stirling Cup is an annual event; this year, we're hosting the Avalanche alumni hockey game in Aspen to commemorate Stirling Cooper's life and raise money for Aspen Junior Hockey.  This year we will have roughly 12-15 former Avalanche in attendance, and we will be auctioning off the roster and coaching spots to anyone who wants to play in the game or coach some NHL alumni. 

Additionally, we will have a silent auction to raise money for Aspen Junior Hockey, Dawg Nation Hockey Foundation (www.dawgnationhockey.org). This fantastic non-profit helps hockey families throughout North America. We would very much appreciate any donations to the auction. Ideas include restaurant certificates, art, memorabilia, house rentals, trips, health services, etc. Please feel free to get creative with your donations, as it's all going to a great local cause.

AJH Donations!

WE DID IT!! AJH has met the fundraising goal of 25K to get the 25K anonymous match! With this, we surpassed 50K!!! We are so thankful for our hockey community. The generous donations keep coming in, and we will continue to raise valuable funds for Aspen Junior Hockey. The AJH Board has pledged another 25K to our fundraising efforts!!! We know that together we can reach our new goal of 100K. 

This year has been so difficult on so many, in particular our children. Hockey has offered a mental and physical outlet as well as some consistency in their lives. AJH has done a stellar job of following all the Covid-19 protocols, adapting to all scenarios while keeping our athletes on the ice. Parents, you have continued to support AJH and the guidelines set forth, and it has been commendable that you have kept your children healthy, rested, geared up, and always ready for practices (and games when possible). Our coaches have continued to mentor and develop our athletes while keeping our athletes working hard and having fun! AMAZING!

We are genuinely a hockey family. Thank you for your continued support of Aspen Junior Hockey! The future of our children is very BRIGHT!

Thank you

Harlan and the AJH Board of Directors



Hockey DNA runs deep in Aspen's Doremus family

The hockey goal that has stood watch over the Doremus family driveway in Aspen for the past 20 years has pretty much seen it all. It has been subjected to innumerable hours of being pelted by pucks, courtesy of hundreds of shots per day and countless games of driveway hockey by five ultra-competitive brothers and a host of their associates. The goal declined to comment for this story, but the rest of the Doremus family fondly recalled their Aspen upbringing and hockey’s growing role in Colorado’s high country.
