Joseph Cocking History
The Joseph Cocking Memorial Scholarship Fund (JCMHSF) was created in honor of Joe Cocking. He was born the youngest of 9 children, and started playing hockey as soon as he learned how to skate at only 4-years old.
He played with SHAW hockey in Milwaukee, Wisconsin from 7 years old to 18 years old (1968 - 1979), and started coaching hockey when he was 17 years old with SHAW hockey as well.
Mission & Vision
The Mission of the fund is to allow more kids to experience the joy of ice hockey. Our vision is that deserving youth will have the ability to play hockey without having to worry about the financial aspect of the sport.
Goal of the Fund
Annually fund at least one (Wisconsin area) player's fees from each division (Mini-mites, Mites, Squirts, Peewees, Bantam, High School, and College) to provide them with the joy of hockey without some of the financial burdens it may cause to families.
