Breakaway With Books


The Charlottetown Islanders are extremely excited to announce the launch of the Breakaway With Books Virtual Reading Campaign.

“The Breakaway With Books campaign is designed to put our players in front of our youngest fans and encourage them to be stars off the ice,” said¬†Jason Maclean, Islanders Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The COVID-19 pandemic has caused us to alter how we reach out to our community, and do so in creative ways. We’re excited to have found a way to still visit classrooms across PEI despite these new challenges our province has been presented with.”

Teachers across Prince Edward Island will have the opportunity to nominate their K-4 classes to receive a virtual visit from a Charlottetown Islanders player. That virtual visit will include a reading from our player along with a short Q&A period where the class can ask the player anything.

Nominate your class today by filling out the form below. If selected, someone from our organization will contact the teacher to arrange a virtual class session. This program is open to all K-4 classrooms across PEI; English classes will be paired with an English player while French classes will be paired with one of our French players.
