Update on Tim Horton's sponsorship and products from the retail locations

Posted by North Simcoe Soccer Club on May 30 2018 at 12:21PM PDT

Hello soccer parents:

I would like to provide an update in relation to Tim Horton’s retail locations providing free lemonade to child players, wearing Tim Horton’s sponsored uniforms.

Several years ago, legislation came into affect, which prohibited Corporations to market directly to children., supplying free lemonade to children, fell into this category.

Unfortunately, there has been mixed messages to parents, and most recently, our local Tim Horton stores, may not have been aware of the Corporate policy. We have clarified the issue with Tim Horton’s Corporate today and we would like everyone to be aware that:

Tim Horton’s is a generous sponsor for the North Simcoe Soccer Club, specifically children in Learn to Play, Beginner and Junior leagues, providing uniforms, mini balls, medals and supplies for our season wrap up. They must adhere to government legislation and cannot provide free products to our child soccer players.
They are responsible corporate citizens and we appreciate their contributions to our soccer league.

Kind Regards
Lee Jeannotte
