We, the members of the Florida Everblades Fan Club are committed to act in a
professional manner, as a booster organization, in supporting all efforts for the
promotion of professional hockey in Southwest Florida. The objectives of the
Fan Club are to have fun, along with providing a forum for hockey enthusiasts
to exchange ideas and have opportunities to enjoy the game of hockey.
Furthermore, the Fan Club will provide support for the members of the Florida
Everblades hockey team and their families.
What We Do:
First and foremost, the Fan Club is made up of Everblade fans who want to become
more involved. One of our biggest responsibilities is taking care of the player apartments.
The FanClub supplies the players with basic household goods, and stock the refrigerators
before they arrive. Once the season is over we gather the household goods and store
them for the next season. When the players travel to away games, the Fan Club
stocks the bus with healthy treats (granola/protein bars, fruit, nuts, etc.).
We host four ‘members only’ social events with the players and coaches. Early in the
season, we have a Meet and Greet event, at Christmas time we have an Adults Holiday
Party, in January we have a kids only Kids Holiday Party and at the end of the season
we host a Picnic.
Team Support can get expensive! If you have visited our table at a game, you’ve probably
seen the various items we sell. In addition, we raffle many player-autographed items,
handmade hockey related items, gift card trees, theme baskets or sponsor donated items.
We also hold 50/50 drawings at our ‘member only’ events. 100% of the proceeds are
used for Team Support.
Membership is open to families, individuals 18 and older and unaccompanied minors.
The membership year runs from August 1st to July 31st. More information and application
forms can be found on the Join Us page. We meet on the third Tuesday of each month
(except June, July, August and December) usually in The Olde Florida room in the
Germain Arena. The General Membership Meeting time is at 7:00 p.m. and they typically
run for about an hour or so. We try to make these meetings fun and informative.
Our Board of Directors meeting are held at 7 p.m. and, unless noted they are open
sessions for anyone who wishes to attend. It’s not unusual for our monthly meetings to
include current and former players, coaches/training staff, and journalists.
