TJ's Pizza Pick Up

TBL Fundraising Updates

We wanted to send out a quick update on several of our fundraisers...

TJ’S Pizza

Our club sold over $60,000 worth of TJ's Pizza, which results in almost $25,000 of credits for our members to use to help pay for their hockey expenses!!!

Delivery – Wednesday, November 30th from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm at East Alton Ice Rink. All orders MUST be picked up during the pickup window, as we do not have the ability to keep orders frozen. If you can help unload the truck at 5:15pm, we would appreciate it!

Levy – Concession Stands

December dates have been added to the calendar, if you have completed your alcohol and Levy training you may sign up on the Volunteer page of the website. We have to turn in our availability for December events by 11/15/22 so please sign up ASAP if you are interested.

January events will be announced the first week of December.

Bingo

Bingo is hosted by TBL every Monday night from 5:30pm to 10pm at the Tri-Cities Columbus Hall in Granite City, IL. Families who sign up to staff Bingo not only earn credits they can apply toward their season fees and other expenses, they help the club's bottom line.

Approximately 12 workers are needed to fully staff Bingo each week but not everyone is expected to be there the entire time. TBL families are allowed to sign up for two shifts per month per child.

Fuel your Game - Pre-Game Nutrition

Did you know that what you eat the day before a game can impact your performance? 

It takes 24 hours for food to be digested and available for your body to use as energy for your muscles.

You don’t have to “carb load”, however carbohydrates are a key source of that energy. It’s essential that those are quality carbohydrates. Protein is also important, but shouldn’t be the biggest portion on your plate.  A side of dairy is recommended as well.

How do you time those meals, especially if you’re on the road for a 4-game weekend tournament?

Several hours before the game you’ll need to “top off” your tank. Timing depends on the athlete, but you need to give your body time to digest it. It’s okay to have a small snack an hour before game time. 

One other bit of advice, pre-game meals probably aren’t the best time to experiment with new foods. 

You can find more on Pre-Game Nutrition on our Resources page.
