Have the Marlies come to your community rink! The Marlies will run a full practice and one lucky team will join the team afterwards as the coaching staff takes you through drills and relays. Afterwards, the team stays for a full autograph signing.
Children represent a large part of the Marlies' fan base, and they often face issues such as bullying at school. The Toronto Marlies Assembly Program involves players taking the opportunity to visit Toronto area schools to share their stories and advice about bullying and act as role models for students across the city. Marlies' mascot Duke the Dog makes an appearance at the safe schools campaign assemblies as well, and offers a friendly face for the school children to look up to.
Shape up uses professional sports to provide Daily Physical Activity resources to Ontario's elementary teachers. Participating classes are eligible for school visits and clinics with players and open practices at Air Canada Centre and BMO Field.
Select groups and organizations in the community are given the opportunity to attend a Toronto Marlies' home game. Along with entrance to the game, they have access to some of the best seats in the house with their own luxury suite. Following the game, the crew will get to meet a Toronto Marlies player! He will sign autographs and take the time to talk with the kids as they share with him the goodies they found in their gift bags.
Annual SickKids Visit
Every year, the Toronto Marlies and Duke the Dog pay a visit to SickKids hospital to play Bingo with the patients. Players are stationed through various wards in the hospital with the centre of the action taking place in the Bear Theatre.
