The Sioux Falls Stampede kick off their 2017-2018 season on October 7 against the Waterloo Blackhawks.
Our HS youth heading to Houston for the National Youth Gathering have been selected to participate in this game through the Chuck-a-Puck contest. The season opener is a huge game for the Stampede and according to their website:
"The Stampede will have several different activities planned around the season and home opener, including a tailgate party. The first 1,000 kids 12 and under will receive a Stampede replica jersey, compliments of Waterbury Heating & Cooling and Coleman Heating & Air Conditioning. More information on all activities planned for the opener will be announced at a later date."
Our youth have a goal to sell at least 50 tickets to the big game. Tickets are $15 each ($5 of each ticket comes back to the youth along with 50% of the chuck-a-puck proceeds.) Tickets can be pre-ordered to ensure you get on our list for our section when official ticket sales begin September 1. Watch for more details on this big event!!
