Show your support for the tiniest patients
and make a difficult start to life a little easier.

The Barrie Ball Hockey Club is pleased to announce it is hosting a 3 on 3 tournament and 25th anniversary celebration from August 23-25, 2019 benefiting the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH).

Ballhockey.com and its corporate sponsors will be involved in celebrating and organizing the weekend. The weekend will include a corporate focused event on Friday afternoon, some celebrations and fun celebrity games Friday night and a full weekend of events and social celebration of the 25 years Barrie Ball Hockey has been operating. The club will also host a skills competitions, dunk tanks and lots of other fun activities. The 3 on 3 Tournament will have many divisions and an evening party to celebrate the 25th anniversary will take place on Saturday, August 24.

Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre thanks Barrie Ballhockey.com for its support of the RVH Neonatal Intensive Care Unit – your registration fee supports vital care for newborns!  

Last year, 2,080 babies were born at RVH - that's six families each day that are started or expanded in the RVH delivery ward! Having a newborn is one of the most exciting times in a parent’s life, but if that infant has health issues or arrives too early, it can quickly become the most stressful. Up to 15 per cent of babies born at RVH will need specialized care in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit - sometimes for weeks.  These infants require specialized equipment to keep them warm, help them breathe, protect them from infections and to support them until they are ready to join their family. Transport incubators, infant defibrillators, ventilators, smart intravenous systems — your donations support these very important tools to help these tiny patients. Your contributions will also help RVH plan for a future much needed redevelopment of space in the NICU.

The RVH Foundation is extremely grateful for the support received from Ball Hockey.com and the tournament. It is pleased to announce that it will be awarding certificates to the top fundraising individual and the top fundraising team at the end of tournament.  

After you have processed your team payment, and filled in your roster, please consider clicking on the fundraising link above to make an additional contribution to NICU patient care at RVH, or to start a team fundraiser – you can even share your efforts online and encourage others to support you.

Thank you for playing and for supporting the RVH Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
