New Jersey Devils Alumni

New Jersey Devils Alumni

 

The Devils Alumni Association was formed with the purpose of bringing together former Devils players to develop enjoyable civic activities and charitable fund-raisers, of participating in worthwhile charity/community service programs, and developing means to help promote amateur hockey.
 
 
Ice Clinics
Through various rink partnerships, the Devils alumni perform one-hour on-ice clinics at local rinks. Bruce Driver and Rob Skrlac travel to local rinks and teach children various drills and techniques to better their hockey skills.
 
Scholarships
Among the association's charitable endeavors, four $2,500 scholarships are provided annually to deserving high school senior hockey players. The purpose of this program is to assist in their educations at the college or university of their choice. 
 
Potential candidates must be nominated by their athletic director or coach and comply with the Scholarship Rules, which include the following criteria: Through the most recent grading period, the student must have attained a high school cumulative grade point average of 2.5 (on a 4.0 grading system) or equivalent grade if the student's school uses a different grading system; and the student must be accepted for admission on a full-time matriculating basis to a two or four year academic program at an accredited post-secondary collegiate educational institution.
 
Additionally, the applicant must show a commitment to volunteer work and community service through continued participation in a variety of projects or community organizations. Community activities should reflect that the applicant is "giving back" to society unselfishly and that the applicant is motivated to serve.
