In cooperation with Family Action Network (FAN), Trail Association for Community Living Activity Centre (TAAC) and Kootenay Family Place, the team announced that there will be 4 Sensory Kits on a no charge loaner basis during home games. We hope these kits create a more positive experience for the fans that may struggle with the overwhelming environmental factors they are forced to navigate.
The Smokies along with (FAN) have purchased items for the Sensory Kits including noise cancelling earmuffs, sunglasses, stress ball, fidget spinners, hockey book, and hockey cards along with a social story provided by Kootenay Family Place.
The kits will be available at all future Smoke Eaters home games.
If interested in signing out a sensory kit, please stop into the Smokies Store. For more information about this program, please contact Allison McCarthy at a.mccarthy@trailsmokeeater
