“Fans, fans in the stands, if you’re with us clap your hands!” Ok, so we may not sing to our fans at half time anymore but we really do appreciate all of our fans from far and wide, young and old that make the trip to the rink to watch our games. For some fans, it’s a team bonding activity to watch the NRL with their teammates, for others, it’s a family affair to come out and watch their child or sibling, and for many others, WAM! runs deep in their blood and they want to support the next generation of girls wearing the blue. Regardless of age or the reason for coming, we love all the support.
We love listening to our fans celebrate with us after a sneaky steal, a gorgeous goal or erupt in cheers after an unbelievable save. Our fans help to accelerate the momentum when we are on our game and are a crucial factor to pick us up when we find ourselves in a lull. Our fans hold a lot of the power to our success on the ice; therefore we would like to take the time to recognize some of our amazing fans with our newly introduced “WAM! Fan of the Month” program.
Our first “WAM! Fan of the Month” goes to one of our most die hard fans, Hannah Giles. Whether we are playing in Sherwood Park or Leduc, you can be sure to find this young fan cheering in the stands, sporting her WAM! hoodie. With her toothy smile and her positive demeanor, she is a cosmos of bright energy wherever we find her. The WAMbits love having the opportunity to play with her at the annual Gayle Shaw Fun Day where we get celebrate her on ice success with her. As “WAM! Fan of the Month”, Hannah was presented with a signed “WAMbit in Training”
t-shirt after the WAM/Rath game on November the 7th. Hannah, we are honored to have such an amazing young lady as a our fan and we are ecstatic to have you as our first “WAM! Fan of the Month”!!!!
I know you are all asking the question, “How can I be the next WAM! Fan of the Month?!” Don’t fret, I will tell you. Each month, we ask you to send your photos showing your love for WAM! to one of our many social media platforms:
