It is important to me to be a good role model for kids and the game of hockey. That is why I established The Zuccarello Foundation.
The idea behind The Zuccarello Foundation is to assist and help grow Norwegian grass root and youth hockey all over the country by providing different kind of support to those who need it the most.
Everyone involved with grass root and youth hockey (for example coaches, parents, players and fans) can apply for support. Based on the situation and need for support described in each application, I will each month select a certain amount of applications that will receive backing from The Zuccarello Foundation.
The Zuccarello Foundation does not give away money as support. However, it provides different types of gifts (for example hockey gear and other equipment) that help cut expenses and makes the day-to-day hockey life much easier for teams and those involved.
As The Zuccarello Foundation develops, we aim to start arranging kids hockey camps in Norway during the summer.
The main goals of the The Zuccarello Foundation is to:
– Support “suffering” grass root and youth hockey teams in Norway
– Grow the game and engage more young players
– Encourage young kids to work hard and fulfill their dreams
