Greenville, SC –Today the Road Warriors announced a partnership with TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank®, to present youth hockey scrimmages, featuring some of the area’s youth hockey players in the “mite” age group, during intermission of select Road Warriors hockey games.
The intermission scrimmages, now known as the TD Bank Mites on Ice, will be featured at four games over the remainder of the season. As a part of the program, the youth players and coaches will receive tickets to each of the designated games courtesy of TD Bank. In addition, the participating players will receive special Road Warriors/TD Bank jerseys. Children from Greenville Recreation District Community Centers will also receive game tickets courtesy of TD Bank.
“Supporting the communities where we live and work has long been one of TD Bank’s core values,” said David Lominack, Market President for TD Bank. “We are proud to partner with the Road Warriors to help support youth athletics and developmental programs in our community.”
