The purpose of the grant Program is to seek, fund, and share within Mass Hockey, innovative methods for growing ice hockey participation in our Town, Girls/Women and Disabled Hockey Programs. Funds received from the Mike Cheever "Grow Hockey" Development Grant shall be used to increase the number of new players or retain existing players in the submitting Program. The Cheever Program may also be used by programs to adopt and implement practices consistent with ADM.

On hand to present the 2013 Grant awards were Chair Ellie Cheever, Tom Songin, Mike Dargin, Kerri Allan, and Bob Sweeney.  The recipients and their guests received the awards in a private function before the game and then watched a fantastic game  in the Luxury box so see the Bruins win in a shoot-out victory.
