SWORDS KROGER COMMUNITY REWARDS PROGRAM

If you have not participated in the past but would like to details on the program and how to enroll are listed below.

 

PROGRAM OVERVIEW:
 
The Cincinnati Swords is enrolled in the Kroger Community Rewards program for the upcoming year and are pleased to offer ALL members the opportunity to participate.  You must register your Kroger Plus Card Number online and select Queen City Hockey Association (NPO Number TT350) as your participating organization (see detailed instructions below).  Once you are registered, you only need to use your Kroger Plus card and you will accumulate rewards.  Quarterly, Kroger will distribute $1,000,000 to all participating organizations based on their percentage of spending.  Our allocation of the Kroger funds is outlined below.
 
We hope that all Swords families will participate to help offset their hockey costs.  If you have any questions, please email Melanie Luft at You must register with the NPO number TT350; old CAHA or Queen City team participation numbers are void.
 
DISTRIBUTION OF FUNDS:
 
The Kroger Co. will distribute funds on a quarterly basis with statements and donations being sent on or before September 15, December 15, March 15 and June 15. 
 
Families will need to provide an email copy of Kroger funds earned each quarter and funds will be applied directly to a skater's program.  Funds can be used for any Swords or Sabres online registration.  Your friends and family may also sign up on your behalf but will need to provide the necessary information to us each quarter for you to receive credit.

 If a skater’s family decides to no longer participate with Queen City Hockey Association and has outstanding funds, all funds will be allocated to the general fund as we are not allowed to distribution funds to individuals and all funds must be used for our organization’s purpose which is youth hockey.  Funds can be held for up to four cycles.  After that, any unused funds will be transferred to the general fund.

Goalie Clinic Information-- Goalies and Shooters

Goalie Information

Good afternoon Swords Goalie Families,

The Swords Leadership Team is excited to again be able to offer goalie specific instruction to our goalie families.  New this year we are contracting with Tactical Advantage Goaltending (TAG) to conduct these clinics.  The clinics will be held on various Friday nights through out the year from 8:00-9:15pm.  All ages of goalies are welcome to attend these clinics free of charge.

We are using Sign up Genius to handle the registration side of the clinics this year.  Please use THIS LINK to sign your goalie up for as many of the clinics as you would like to attend.  The max number of goalies for each date will be 24.  Please make sure your child is registered by Wednesday of each clinic week so we can make sure we have the correct number and age groups of shooters to work with your goalie.

More information on TAG along with the schedule of goalie clinics can be found below.

Tactical Advantage Goaltending (TAG) is a Cincinnati based Goaltending Training group headed by Lee Lansdowne and Chris Batchler. TAG offers clinics, private lessons and focused goalie specific training on ice during a goalie’s team practices. The purpose of TAG is through our team of coaches, we want to offer goalies of all ages and skill levels more individual and positional specific training that many goalies are missing from their current training formats. We aim to keep our goalie to instructor ratio as low as possible and focus on all aspect of the goaltending position. Our head instructors Lee Lansdowne and Chris Batchler have experience playing International, Junior, College and Minor league Professional and have been using their experience to pass on knowledge to goalies from all over the Mid-West, with our aim to develop goalies to the highest levels.  

We look forward to working with the Swords Organization and their goalies for the 2021-22 season!!

Please follow us on social media to keep up with our latest clinics or to contact us:

Good afternoon, Swords Families,

The Swords Leadership Team is excited to again be able to offer goalie specific instruction to our goalie families.  What we need from you are shooters, birth years 2003-2009, to come out to these clinics to help the instructors work with the goalies at the clinics. 

We are using Sign up Genius to handle the registration side of the clinics this year.  Please use THIS LINK to sign your skater up for as many of the clinics as they are available to attend.  The max number of shooters for each date will be 20.  Please make sure your child has registered their availability by Wednesday of each clinic week so we can make sure we have the correct number and age groups of shooters to work with the goalies.  Shooters, who will be needed, will be notified the Wednesday of each clinic week.

LINDSAY'S LAW - OHIO REQUIREMENT

Beginning this year for the 2017-18 season, all skaters, at least one parent and all coaches (head, assistant, on-ice helpers) must comply with OH Senate Bill 252 (Lindsay’s Law).  Below is general information about the bill and the requirements.  Even if you do not live in Ohio, if you are participating on a Swords team, you must complete the requirements. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------

 

Lindsay’s Law: Sudden Cardiac Arrest in Youth Athletes

What is Sudden Cardiac Arrest?

A Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating, cutting off blood flow to the brain and other vital organs.  Sudden cardiac arrest is fatal if not treated immediately, most often by a defibrillator.

Who is Lindsay?

Senate Bill 252 is named for national heart health advocate and former Miss Ohio Lindsay Davis who suffers from a heart condition and has since dedicated her career to raising awareness of this potentially fatal condition.

"Sudden cardiac arrest is the number one killer of student athletes," said Davis. "At any moment I could have died because coaches and teachers had no idea this was even a possibility for someone who looked as healthy as I did at that age."

 

Lindsay’s Law

Lindsay’s Law, Ohio Revised Code 3313.53103707.58 and 3707.59 went into effect in 2017.

In accordance with this law, the Ohio Department of Health, the Ohio Department of Education, the Ohio High School Athletic Association, the Ohio Chapter of the American College of Cardiology and other stakeholders jointly developed guidelines and other relevant materials to inform and educate students and youth athletes participating in or desiring to participate in an athletic activity, their parents, and their coaches about the nature and warning signs of sudden cardiac arrest.

The following resources were developed to implement Lindsay’s Law:

For parents/guardians and youth athletes:

For coaches:

  • If you are a coach for an interscholastic sport and are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education, please visit their website for information about their training requirements around Lindsay’s Law.
  • If you are a coach in a community program, please use the following resources:
