The primary beneficiary of the Anaheim Ducks Foundation is Anaheim Ducks S.C.O.R.E. (Scholastic Curriculum of Recreation & Education). The program is a free standards-based curriculum, with resources and incentives for teachers and students. Through the establishment of two major initiatives, In-Class Education and Physical Education, Ducks S.C.O.R.E. uses hockey to teach educational themes, reinforce the importance of positive character building and reward youth for their dedication pursuing academic excellence.
The Anaheim Ducks Foundation also supports Anaheim Ducks Learn to Play Powered by Ryan Getzlaf & Corey Perry, which offers first-time hockey players the chance to get on the rink in full hockey equipment for free. Players receive instruction on the basics of hockey as well as learn how to skate properly. Participants in the Learn to Play program are provided with an equipment bag, helmet, shin guards, hockey pants, elbow pads, shoulder pads, gloves and a jersey to use for the four-week session in order to be fully protected on the rink.
In addition, the Anaheim Ducks Foundation supports a variety of nonprofit organizations that strive to address the needs of children and families in Southern Calfornia.
