The St. Clair College Alumni Association proudly announces a generous donation of $6,000 to the Knobby's Kids hockey and skating program which was presented at the December 14th Windsor Spitfire game.

This contribution will go towards covering the essential costs of rink rental and insurance for the program's Saturday morning sessions, held from 8-11 am at Windsor's Lanspeary Lions Outdoor Rink located at 1250 Langlois Ave.

For more than 15 years, the St. Clair College Alumni Association has been steadfast in supporting Knobby's Kids by covering these vital expenses, ensuring that the program continues to thrive and benefit the Windsor community.

“The Alumni Association is pleased to support the work of the volunteers and coaches who have provided their devotion and skills to these youth in our community. Every Saturday morning their investment in these young lives are a testament and the vision of the founders of this worthwhile group in our community” Belinda  Bulhoes President St. Clair College Alumni Association

Knobby’s Kids

Knobby's Kids, established in 2006 by Robert "Knobby" Knudsen, Jerry Slavic, and Frank Spry, addresses the need for a free hockey and skating program for children who face financial barriers to participating in organized hockey leagues or learning how to skate. Despite the unfortunate passing of the program's founders, their legacy lives on through the dedication of Marty Kerester and community volunteers who are now managing and running the program.

The Knobby's Kids program operates from late fall through March, providing a valuable opportunity for children to learn and play in a supportive and inclusive environment.

To register for the program or to contribute by donating used or new skates or hockey equipment, please contact

The St. Clair College Alumni Association expresses its commitment to supporting community initiatives like Knobby's Kids and remains dedicated to fostering the growth and well-being of the Windsor community through philanthropy and service.
