Waterloo Minor Hockey is honoured to announce the establishment of the Mark Schneider Bursary program effective beginning the 2018-19 season.

Thanks to the generosity of his mother and late father, this bursary has been established in Mark Schneider’s memory to provide fee assistance covering the recreational hockey base registration for one (1) player in the Major Bantam division and one (1) player in the Minor Midget division each season.  

Mark joined Waterloo Minor Hockey at the age of 15, playing with other kids who had likely been on the ice for years. His final year, at the age of 17, he took on the challenging position of goalie. Tragically, Mark passed away in a car accident May 6, 2007 at the age of 17. Mark approached hockey with the same tenacity and enthusiasm he lived his so very short life.  

Our goal is to provide the means, for two (2) deserving young players, to follow their passion and experience all the positive benefits of this team sport in Mark’s memory.  

All players who have registered at the Major Bantam and Minor Midget divisions by  August 1st of each season are eligible to receive the bursary.   Recipients will be selected by lottery and announced each year at WMHA’s annual general meeting in September.
