SLAP is a development hockey program that gives kids a chance to play and learn the fundamentals of hockey at a fraction of the price. This program is for children ages 5-12 years old.
Hockey was one of the first team sports we organized. Still today, this passion is part of our Sports & Recreation programs such as the SLAP Hockey program.
It is through the collaboration of Park-Extension Youth Organization (PEYO), the Quebec Avalanche Hockey Club and Sun Youth Organization that the program was established in 2005. Its mission is to introduce children, aged between 5 and 13 years old and from low income families, to the fundamentals of the sport that would otherwise be inaccessible to them. The participants are first taught basic skating skills and eventually progress to proficiency in team concepts.
Since October 2016, the SLAP program has expanded and is now available to young residents of Pierrefonds aged between 5 and 11 years old. Sponsored by the City of Montreal and the Pierrefonds-Roxboro Borough, this hockey development program takes place at the Pierrefonds Sportplexe.
On an annual basis, over 100 young players have the chance to thrive in a structured, safe, fun and educational environment under the supervision of volunteer coaches.
WALL OF FAME

university and even professional levels. We call them our wall of famers
