Kraft Hockeyville: Providing Adequate Community Funding for Recreational and Athletic Infrastructure

    With its first winner crowned in 2006, Kraft Hockeyville has become an annual event leaving an unmistakable impression across Canada’s minor hockey players and the communities in which they reside.

    As part of the annual competition, communities across Canada are nominated for the chance to be crowned Kraft Hockeyville.  The criterion for nomination requires a strong sense of family, community and hockey, with each winner receiving up to $100,000 worth of upgrades to their local arena.

    While many of these arenas are undoubtedly known for their frosty winter mornings and hockey players of all ages, they also serve as hubs of the communities they call home.  In addition to minor hockey leagues, these community institutions are used for both private and community events such as fundraisers, sports clubs, receptions and often serve schools and other groups within the community.

    Motorsports are something we at Sport Systems have taken part in and supported for a number of years.  Combining our president’s passion for racing along with the unique branding opportunities sponsorship brings to our organization, we love being a part of the action.

    After sponsoring Nolan Gould’s Sport Systems’ mini stock machine with a successful season in 2014, we are back on the track.  Our most recent sponsorship brought us to the DIRT Sportsman Series running races at both Brockville and Cornwall, Ontario and more specifically, paired us up with Tom Roy of Roy Performance Motorsports.

    While we unfortunately cannot give to every organization, we do proudly support a number of charitable organizations each and every year.  As part of this mission, we are particularly proud of events that are held right here in our community, including one with which we have worked for over 35 years.

    The Almonte Hospital Charity Golf Tournament, as its name suggests, supports the Almonte General Hospital-Fairview Manor Foundation.  Governed by a group of community leaders and hospital management members, the foundation sets out to provide funds to support the goals and objectives of both the hospital and the manor.

    Sport Systems Driver Nolan Gould Wins A Barn Burner at Capital City Speedway's Mould Family Memorial Night - Presented by Sport Systems

    Posted by Ryan Wilby

    It was a busy Wednesday night on July 9th when the Capital City Speedway hosted the Mould Family Memorial Race Night proudly sponsored by Sport Systems.  The night featured fast paced racing across 6 classes and a fantastic half time show in light of the fan appreciation focused evening.

    After the fan appreciation half time event it was time for the 15 lap Mini Stock feature, with all eyes on Nolan Gould and the Sport Systems Mini Stock machine.  In the 2nd lap Gould had moved from 6th position to the lead, but had some stiff competition in the field.  Unfortunately for Gould, points leader Jason Moss (car #12) was looking to play spoiler.  After restarts on laps 3, 4 and 8, Gould stayed up front as Moss played peek-a-boo in his rear view mirror.  With the white flag ready to drop Moss took the lead out of turn 4.  Moss then ran into lap traffic on the back straight and the veteran Gould managed to regain the lead.
