In just 129 days, the Heat will be “Fired Up About our Community” as we celebrate not only the return of professional hockey to the Central Valley, but also champions in our community! Whether it be a terrific sporting triumph, an academic success or club achievement, we celebrate the best in our community. A big Opening Night party on the plaza prior to the game on Saturday, October 14 is planned to get everyone “Fired Up for Stockton Heat Hockey”!
The team and the Central Valley community will be “Fired Up for Finding a Cure” as Stockton Heat Hockey Fights Cancer on Saturday, November 4, with the team wearing special lavender themed jerseys for the first time in Stockton Hockey history, helping to raise awareness and funds for all forms of cancer, along with giving out jerseys to both kids and adults before the contest!
Then on Saturday, January 20, the Heat are looking to toss 10,000 teddy bears onto the ice as we go for another record breaking performance (last season Heat fans set a record of 9,502) on the 13th Annual Teddy Bear Toss Night. Fans are encouraged to bring stuffed animals to the game and throw them onto the ice once the Heat score their first goal of the game, where the toys will be collected and donated to the United Way of San Joaquin County.
Then on Saturday, February 17, the team gets “Fired Up for Safety” during Stockton Heat Hockey Safety Night. Exhibitors on the concourse will be invited to the Arena to give safety tips and information for all in attendance.
Everyone will be “Fired Up By the Force” again as the 501st Legion, Central California Garrison invades Stockton Arena on Saturday, March 3 for Stockton Heat Hockey Star Wars Night! One of the most anticipated promotional nights on the calendar when fans will be invited to dress as their favorite Star Wars character as we celebrate both hockey and a cultural icon in front of an expected sell-out crowd!
