The Quad City Mallards of the Central Hockey League will honor Quad Cities area youth sports participants with the creation of the Mallards Good Sport award, the team announced today.
The Mallards Good Sport award will be presented to youth who best combine excellence in their sport with sportsmanship and leadership, as selected by their coaches. The Mallards will first honor athletes taking part in spring and summer sports. Winners will receive two complimentary tickets to a November Mallards home game along with a congratulatory letter from the Mallards. During that game, they will be recognized for their achievements and presented with a certificate of achievement and gift.
“We’re excited to have the chance to recognize young athletes in the Quad Cities area not only for their successes in their respective sports but also for demonstrating good sportsmanship, leadership and teamwork,” said Mallards executive vice president Ryan Simmons.
Area youth coaches in spring and summer sports can contact the Mallards at (309) 277-1364 or firstname.lastname@example.org for Good Sport award registration forms and further details. Youth ages 5 to 14 are eligible for the Good Sport award.
Additional tickets to Good Sport Night will be available for a discounted rate to family members and teammates of honorees. The Mallards will hold a second Good Sport Night to honor athletes in fall and winter sports later in the 2012-13 season. The dates for both Good Sports Nights will be announced after the 2012-13 CHL schedule is finalized later this summer.
Mallards season tickets as well as the Mallards’ new Partial Punch Plan are now available. The Mallards offer ticket packages to meet any budget, including youth season tickets for as little at $165. The Partial Punch Plan provides flexibility and affordability- each Punch Plan punch card can be redeemed for ten tickets- whether those tickets are for ten different games, all for the same game or anything in between- subject to availability. Partial Punch Plans can be had for as little as $70 for youth 12 and under. For more ticket package information, fans can call the Mallards at 309-277-1364.
