The boys hockey team at West Hartford’s Conard High School is holding a ‘fan cutout’ fundraiser.
When winter athletes finally get to start playing games the week of Feb. 8, things will look a little different.
In addition to the masks and other safety precautions, no student fans will be allowed in attendance.
Jason Siegal, West Hartford athletic director (for both Conard and Hall high schools), sent an email to hockey parents last week stating that each student-athlete will be allowed one adult spectator in attendance for home games only. In the absence of fans, Friends of Conard Hockey booster club has put together a fan cutout fundraiser.
At a cost of $15 for students and $20 for adults, a fan cutout will be created and brought to all the home games to fill the stands. The fan cutout is yours to keep at the end of the season.
“If the athletes can’t have the energy of their fans, at least they will be able to look up and see their faces” said Kjeldy McGoldrick, Friends of Conard Hockey president. “And if you don’t have a particular face in mind for a cutout, consider sponsoring a student fan by simply donating.”
To order a cutout, email your high resolution .jpeg image to [email protected] by Feb. 3. Payment can be submitted via Venmo (@Conard-Hockey).
The athletes look forward to “seeing” everyone at their games.
