A.M.P. X FRONTS
Updated: May 19, 2019
On Sunday, February 11th, 2018, the Kingston Frontenac's took on the North Bay Battalion at the Rogers K-Rock center. For a long time, Frontenac's hockey has been a large family attraction in the community, and this past Sunday, the Frontenac's took steps towards raising awareness and increasing inclusivity in the greater Kingston community. The Kingston Frontenac's partnered with Autism Ontario to have an autism awareness game that helped to not only raise ASD awareness within the community but also created memories for the families that took part in the successful day.
The community partners that helped put on this event all contributed to the great game day experience. The Kingston Frontenac's, Autism Ontario, Queen's University's ASUS Autism Partnership Program, the Center for Behavioural Studies at St. Lawrence College, and the Autism Mentorship Program (A.M.P.) all played a vital role in ensuring the success of the day. In addition
In addition to the great atmosphere, resources for the community and families on the concourse, face painting, and the sensory safe zone for the children, all in attendance were treated to a phenomenal hockey game. The Frontenac’s were able to overcome a 2-0 North Bay lead late, pulling out the thrilling victory late in the 3 rd period. With a final score of 3-2, the Frontenac’s continued their roll towards the playoffs, leaving all those in attendance with a special game day memory. The generosity of all the community organizations that were involved made for a great day. A.M.P. was also fortunate to have Ben Locke capturing video of the event, and Ella Rose capturing photographs of the day.
Thank you from all of us at the A.M.P. We are happy to have been a part of such a successful afternoon, and we can't wait until our next event.
