Helping those in need.
Who are we? COTHPA.com
The Calgary Old Time Hockey Players Association (COTHPA) was founded on Aug. 24, 1954 to primarily help ex hockey players, no longer capable of making a living playing the game or those retired, whom may be in need of financial or medical assistance. This mandate was continued for a number of years until present day salaries, insurance plans and current NHL retired player benefits made our mandate out of date.
The new mandate provides financial assistance to male and female athletes attending the University of Calgary, Mount Royal University and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and playing on the Varsity hockey teams as well as maintaining a high Academic GPA. In addition to scholarly athletes the COTHPA contributions list has expanded to much more than the initial scope and now supports not only the original concepts but also many other varied persons or groups in need and offers scholarships to players at other institutions as well.
