|Dear Parents, Friends and Supporters of Billiken Hockey|
We are pleased to announce the creation of the SLU Billiken Hockey Booster Club. The purpose of the club is to support and expand the educational and athletic goals of Saint Louis University and the Billiken Hockey Club. Our goal is to raise funds to support the successful growth of the hockey club through raising participation of supporters, developing new activities and programs that enhance the goals and success of the program.
Why are we acting now? The SLU Billiken Hockey Club has been very successful. As we stand today, the D1 team is ranked 10th nationally, and we are all very proud of the student athletes. We know we can take the teams to the next level with the addition of a new ice rink on campus. To achieve this we are going to need the support, energy, and creativity of all the supporters and friends of Billiken Hockey. We want to create programs that allow all to take part in the development and success of the club and building of a new arena. The Billiken Bench Club is the tool we will be using to support these efforts.
As you are aware, Billiken hockey is a club sport paid for by the student athletes and their parents. Hockey is an expensive sport, and our team coaches do a very good job of keeping the program affordable; however, we believe that we can expand the number of booster events to the benefit of the athletes and the success of the club.
We are creating the Billiken Bench Club with three levels of participation. Descriptions of the White, Royal, and Platinum packages are enclosed. We believe that these programs will increase the opportunities for parents, local and out-of-town, to take part and keep up-to-date with club activities, the athletes, and the current season.
Please take the time to review the Billiken Bench Club package options. We hope that you select the White package at a minimum and ask you to consider the Royal or Platinum package. For this year, because we are mid-season, all packages will be carried through the entire 2003-2004 season, so you will receive full benefits for this year and next year.
Please take the time and sign up NOW for the Billiken Bench Club. Show your Billiken Pride!
