Jason Simon, retired professional hockey player of the NHL, is making a special visit to the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe to speak with tribal youth.  Tribal youth ages 12 and over are invited to this motivational speech and hockey skills demonstration. The event will be held on Saturday, January 13 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe Community and Government Center.

Jason Simon, from the Aamjiwnaang First Nation, enjoyed a professional hockey career that spanned 17 years, playing for a number of major and minor league teams. Jason’s impressive physical presence and dedication allowed him to become a respected enforcer within the game.

Since his retirement, Jason has become an active professional speaker and motivator, touring across North America. He brings his message of struggle, perseverance and commitment to mental and physical well-being. He is extremely passionate about the development of the youth within aboriginal communities. Jason is not only a retired professional athlete but also a survivor of addiction and adversity.

Jason’s professional success and ability to connect with youth will make him a must attend event for all tribal youth in the community. Please don’t miss this great opportunity.
