Appreciation Wall

February 11, 2021

On behalf of the Adirondack Civic Center Coalition and Adirondack Hockey LLC, we would like to thank you for your continued support of YOUR Adirondack Thunder hockey these past four years. 

We are in the midst of unprecedented times; a winter without hockey in Glens Falls.  We know the excitement our fans bring to the Cool Insuring Arena and cannot wait for October 2021 as we look forward to the kickoff of the 2021-22 season.

In spite of not having a season, we continue to incur significant expenses throughout the winter and into spring 2021.  League dues, insurance, and health benefits just to name a few. 

We are kicking off a fundraising program that will allow our supporters to receive name recognition at the arena for as low as $100.00.  This tax-deductible donation will continue to allow the team to operate in Glens Falls for years to come.

We have been fortunate that our supporters and community partners have already stepped up and we are halfway to our goal of $130,000.00.

We look forward to seeing you all in October.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHY DO YOU NEED DONATIONS?

  • Despite not being able to play in the 2020-21 ECHL season, each ECHL team that isn’t playing still incurs significant expenses such as League Dues, Insurance, Health Benefit payments to name a few.  We have been closed for almost a year at this point.  

WHAT IS THE DONATION WALL?

  • We are creating a Wall of Appreciation for the 2021-22 season that will highlight all individuals and businesses that has and will contribute to our Keep Hockey Here Campaign.   

WILL THE THUNDER BE BACK IN 2021-22?

  • YES, The Thunder will be back for the 2021-22 season and beyond.  We have started preparations with a limited staff and will bring back the full staff as we get closer to the 2021-22 season.  

WHAT IS THE STATUS OF THE THUNDER?

  • Currently, we are working with a very limited staff with the team and at the arena.  Most of the full-time employees have been furloughed.  All game day staff, ECHL off-ice officials, food and beverage staff, security, and EMS staff has not had any work due to no Thunder Hockey or arena events being permitted.  We anticipate being able to bring the staff back early in the summer to prepare for the 2021-22 season.  Head Coach Alex Loh is staying in contact with our players and will start formal preparations for the 2021-22 season once the new year begins
