Ed Snider, the late Philadelphia Flyers founder, and chairman created Snider Hockey in 2005 as a personal commitment to teaching children important life lessons. The mission of the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation is to build lives and unite communities. It uses the sport of hockey to help educate young people to succeed in the game of life. Snider Hockey services are targeted for inner-city boys and girls who otherwise would not have the opportunity to learn to skate or to play ice hockey. The program includes over 3,000 students.
