Bucs Lead in the Community

Bucs start a new tradition and show community leadership in Des Moines.

The USHL Bucs started a new tradition this season with a Hat and Mitten Toss (not to be confused with a hat trick, ha). The hats and mittens are collected and donated to charity.

Mitten & Hat Toss Night!  Bring a new pair of mittens or hats and toss them when the Bucs score their first goal and we will donate them to children in need at Children & Families of Iowa.

Great start for the tradition and props to the team for the charitable move. The team also made a strong statement as community leaders in February as they announced they would maintain social distancing and a mask requirement despite the Governor’s loosening of those standards.  Good show of concern for their fans and community leadership.
