During the 2019-20 season, the Laval Rocket presented the third edition the fan-favorite Rocket Hockey Tour contest, presented by Sportium in collaboration with St-Albert Cheese Co-Op, which gave five minor hockey teams the unique opportunity to take to the ice and enjoy tips and drills with professional players and assistant coach Daniel Jacob at their local rink. Four teams hosted a group of players and coach Jacob in their respective local arenas while one lucky team from Mirabel won the main prize; a chance to visit and change into their hockey gear in the Rocket’s locker room and jump on the main ice at Place Bell.

Devoted to the development of young players through hockey and the values inherit to the sport, the team was proud to announced that Sportium joined the St-Albert Cheese Co-Op to propel this third edition of the program to new heights. Novice and bantam hockey teams from Hockey Laval, Hockey Lac St-Louis and Hockey Laurentides/Lanaudières associations were eligible to participate in the contest.

The Rocket Hockey Tour has allowed many young teams to benefit from tips from professional coaches and meet several players like Alex Belzile, Cale Fleury, Jake Evans and Cayden Primeau. The Rocket Hockey Tour aims to provide children with a positive sports environment that includes skills development, respect for others, and respect for the rules, all the while teaching kids the fundamental values of perseverance, dedication and team spirit associated with our game – and of course – with the Laval Rocket.
