A team built around community
Professional Hockey is returning to Indianapolis and Susan G. Komen® Central Indiana is thrilled to have the support of Indy Fuel and Head Coach Scott Hillman.
As Indy Fuel gears up for its first season, the Fuel’s office staff has been busily working for the past few months spreading the word and telling everyone that hockey is back in Indy! Coach Hillman explained that there has been heightened awareness and excitement building in Indianapolis.
Hillman is enthusiastic about coaching the Indianapolis minor ice hockey team this season and hopes for a lot of fan involvement stating, “It’s very exciting to be in a market this size with this deep hockey history.”
The Fuel will play home games at the newly renovated Fairgrounds Coliseum“excited for the fan base and the community to see the brand new interior.”
With Indy Fuel’s commitment to the Indianapolis community, comes associations with organizations like Komen Central Indiana. Indy Fuel was a diamond sponsor for the 2014 Pink Tie Ball, in part due to owner Jim Hallett's personal commitment to the cause.
Hillman is coming to Indianapolis from a team outside of Kansas City where his previous team had amazing community involvement. Hillman said they were able to donate over $1 million back to their community. He was also involved with Komen in his last coaching job and looks forward to continuing to spread awareness about breast cancer.
