In 1999 an inter-continental exchange program between two youth hockey programs, the Haverford Hawks and Finland’s Helsinki Vikings, began with a simple love of the sport. The program has now become an annual event, that had two Finnish youth ice hockey teams (ages 12-14) arrive in the Philadelphia area on March 19th. The visitors include 24 Finnish youth players and 21 Finnish adults.
Since the beginning, the efforts of players’ parents have resulted in a culturally rich experience for all involved. The teams alternate visiting each other’s countries every other year. This year, Hawks families will host boys from Finland while their parents lodge at a local hotel.
As a supporter of the event, a Modell’s private shopping event was scheduled from 8:00 – 9:00 AM on Monday March 21, 2011 at #28 Clifton Heights. In attendance were players from the Haverford Hawks and both Finland Viking youth teams as well as parents/guardians. The players and parents from Finland had an opportunity to pick up plenty of “local” gear, with Modell’s donating a portion of all the sales back to the Finland Exchange Program through their participation in Team Weeks Program.
A number of events for both parents and children are planned in conjunction with the ten day exchange program. Scheduled events include an ice hockey tournament, a Philadelphia Flyers game, a Flyers practice, tours of New York & Philadelphia, and shopping. As an added benefit through Modell’s, the Helsinki Vikings players are scheduled for a private meet & greet with the Philadelphia Flyers from Finland, Kimmo Timonen and Ville Leino, following their visit to Flyers practice on March 23rd.
