NIHA continues to work toward the betterment of our area youth and continues to teach the game of hockey for all children who want to learn. Our most significant challenge is making the sport of hockey accessible to all families. We operate our Hockey Equipment Program, Scores for Schools, 50% off new players fees and Scholarship Program solely in an effort to include every child who would like to play the game. Our organization is run 100% by unpaid volunteers who believe in our vision. 100% of our board commits monetary donations to our cause as well. 

We appreciate everyone's support and participation!

Hi Gens Families - 


Don't forget to get your tickets for a fun night out with ALL your favorite hockey teams! This will be a nice chance for us to get together and have some fun during our Thanksgiving break from the ice. 

Join your fellow Newark Generals families at Nationwide Arena as The Blue Jackets take on the Toronto Maple Leafs on (Black) Friday, November 23rd at 7PM! This night will be for all of us to celebrate the current and future successes of the Newark Ice Hockey Association.

This is a fun, laid back evening we have each year where players and parents get to spend time together off the ice and get to know each other while cheering on our Columbus Blue Jackets. So kick back, relax and enjoy the game from the premier Sky Terrace.

Registered players will receive a complementary ticket using their USA Hockey ID per each paid adult ticket ($35 a ticket). Please register here. We hope to see you in the Sky Terrace!

ShopwithScrip - A way to save $$ on youth hockey fees

Hi Newark Generals Families -

With the season now in full swing and the number of new players we have this year, I want to remind everyone about our new Shop with Scrips program. This program is a unique way for families to reduce their players fees directly just by doing the everyday shopping you already do. We rolled this program out in May and several families have already saved hundreds on their children's hockey fees. 
Also, I've had many families ask if we will open up the program to include the physical and reloadable gift cards. I'm happy to let everyone know that we will begin ordering physical & reloadable cards in October; just in time for the holidays. Everyone will still pay with PrestoPay. I plan to place orders for physical cards at least twice a month, and possibly more often depending on the volume of orders. More to come on this soon.
What it is: ShopwithScrip is a fundraising program our families can utilize in order to offset their players hockey fees. Essentially, it allows you to purchase gift cards to use instantly (and physical cards soon) and will give NIHA a rebate credit, which will be applied to your player's fees. I am the administrator for this program. Just on the normal things my family buys regularly, we've already saved roughly $200 on our son's fees (we've used these instant gift cards at Target, Walmart, Texas Roadhouse, Olive Garden, Lowes, Starbucks, Amazon & Best Buy, to name a few). 
You can find the program details and steps on our website under the main navigation header --> Fundraisers --> ShopwithScrip (see screenshot below). When you have a chance, please go there to check out the details and sign up, if you'd like to utilize this program. If you have any questions at all or the instructions aren't clear, please email me anytime. I want your feedback.
Here are some of many examples of places you probably shop regularly already, but can now use to save money on your fees.
Home Improvement - The Home Depot, Lowes 4%
Dining Out - Applebees, Red Lobster, Buffalo Wild Wings, Panera, Texas Roadhouse, Outback, PF Changs 8%
Various other restaurants 9-11% rebates
Pharmacy - CVS - 6%
Shopping - American Eagle, Macy's 10%, Kohls 4%, Bath & Body Works 13%, Old Navy 14%, Amazon 2.25%, Target & Walmart 2.5%, iTunes 5%, Best Buy 4%, Ulta 4%
Travel & Entertainment - Delta 4%, Southwest 4%, Disney 3%, AMC Theaters 8%, StubHub 4%, 6%, Sirius XM 4%
Grocery - Walmart 2.5%, Whole Foods 3%
**Rebate amounts change periodically**
