Neumann & SNIDER Partnership

Neumann University and Ed Snider Youth Hockey & Education 

Neumann University and Ed Snider Youth Hockey & Education are respected community organizations that share similar missions.

Neumann University is an independent Catholic college, committed to providing students with rigorous academic majors, leadership opportunities, ethical values, and professional internships. The campus culture emphasizes respect for individuals, concern for the environment, and social responsibility. More than half of Neumann’s students are the first in their families to attend college. 

Ed Snider Youth Hockey & Education was created by the late Philadelphia Flyers Chairman, Ed Snider, in 2005 as his personal commitment to teach under-resourced children important life lessons and empower them to build healthy, happy, productive lives. Its programs emphasize academic success, thoughtful life choices, gainful employment, and giving back to the community.

Jasmine Martinez, a senior at Neumann University, represented the Philadelphia Flyers at the podium for the team’s first draft pick during ESPN’s national coverage of the NHL draft at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada. The Flyers selected Martinez, a Goals & Assists Scholar at Neumann, because she had participated in SNIDER programs since she was seven.  


SNIDER held an annual Fit to Lead Conference at Neumann University, welcoming over 200 high school and college student-athletes, coaches, and educators from across Southeastern PA to a free day of learning and inspiration.
