Hockey Hall of Fame
Dear Members, As we have all navigated through unprecedented times, we would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation to all our members for their unwavering support and dedication to our organization.

We recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic created significant challenges and uncertainties for everyone. Yet, in spite of these difficulties, our members have remained steadfast and committed to our shared mission and goals.

The Southpoint Board would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your resilience, patience, and understanding. As a small token of our appreciation, we are delighted to offer all coaches and players who are registered with Southpoint Minor Hockey and ESP travel teams a free admittance bracelet to The Hockey Hall of Fame Exhibit presented by Southpoint Minor Hockey in partnership with Meteor Systems, Leamington Food Outlet and Southern Logistics Inc.

This exhibit is our way of giving back to our members who have been through tough times. We hope that this event will bring joy, excitement, and inspiration to all those who attend.

The exhibit will feature 20 themed showcases, including NHL Original Six teams like the Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers, and Toronto Maple Leafs, as well as its NHL legends display of goaltenders, defencemen, forwards, and officials.

You will also have the opportunity to experience some of the NHL's most iconic moments up close and personal. The exhibit will include showcases dedicated to the NHL Stanley Cup, as well as Wayne Gretzky - The Legend.

In addition to these showcases, the exhibit will also feature a range of other themes, including military hockey history, aboriginal hockey, and international teams like Team Canada Pro Classics, Team Canada Olympics, Team Canada World Junior Championships, and Team Canada Women's.

Junior hockey fans won't be left out either, as the exhibit will showcase OHL Memorial Cups and OHL 1st Overall NHL Draft Picks. And for those looking for some interactive fun, there will be electronic hockey net, radar cage, goalie challenge, mini rink zone, skee puck, and bubble hockey games to enjoy.

The exhibit will be on display at the Nature Fresh Recreational Centre located at 249 Sherk St. on Saturday, April 22 from 9:00 AM till 8:00 PM and Sunday, April 23 from 9:00 AM till 6:00 PM. General admission is just $10 per person, and children under two years of age can attend for free.

Coaches and players names will be verified at the admission table during exhibit hours.

Thank you again for your ongoing support and loyalty. We look forward to continuing to serve our members and our community.

Best regards, 

Greg Liebrock
Southpoint President
