Fan Testimonials

I wanted to take a moment to thank you and the Gladiator organization. Although we've been Gladiator fans since the first season, this is the first season we've been involved with the Kid's Club. For a minimal fee, the Gladiators provide a great opportunity and experience for kids of all ages. We have thoroughly enjoyed all the games we've been too, but my children have enjoyed those special Kid's Club only events - bowling, high fives in the tunnel, birthday card, shirt, etc. The whole Gladiator experience is very family friendly, and we are grateful to be a part of it. We look forward to see you and the Gladiators next season.

The kids had a blast and so did all the adults that came. We love our students and we love our Gladiators! You guys rock. Your organization is first class all the way. Every individual that I have encountered over the past few years has been top notch. Very excellent community relations. Many businesses could learn much from your ECHL organization.

"None of us had ever attended any level of hockey game and knew very little of the game. We all could not stop smiling the whole time that we were there. It was unbelievable the amount of fun we had that night... ...The energy in the room was electric and the healthy family environment was refreshing for 2007. We have been talking non-stop since then to all of our friends about how they really must take their families for an incredible night of fun for a very reasonable price."

"My family and I had a terrific time at the Gladiators Game on Hat Trick for Reading Night. We think it's wonderful that you support the community through these young students, and that you encourage a love of reading! Thank you!!"
– The Bolling Family, Braselton

"My son and I had an amazing time at the Hat Trick for Reading night. So much so, that I signed him up for the kids club and bought a flex package for myself. I used to go to Hockey games when I was in high school and I forgot how much I love them and sharing the experience with my 5 year old was a treat. He loved meeting Maximus and trying to catch the coupons that the zeplin drops, it seemed every few minutes there was something new to entertain him. If he had not earned the free tickets we never would of gone, which is sad since it is so close to home. The funny thing is my husband was going to take him and he got sick that day, now I told my husband he will have to fight me for the flex tickets."
– Barb Denton, Sugar Hill

"Thank you for supporting our school programs and encouraging children to read more. My son was very proud to be able to treat me to the game and my high school freshman daughter was eager to tag along as well. It was a great evening out for the three of us to share."
– Hikie Allen, Stone Mountain

"My sons had a fabulous time at the hockey game. Thanks for encouraging them to continue to experience the joy of reading."
– Reneé Whaley, Gifted Program Teacher Simonton Elementary School

"I recently went to a Saturday night game with my 6 yr old son. We had a wonderful experience. The Gladiator games are so family friendly and I look forward to taking the whole family in the near future."
– Barry Shaw, Buford

"It was a great incentive to get our students reading and it made a lifelong impression on them. I feel that each child who participated in the program walked away with a great deal. They received a free ticket to a game, at- home reading experience, encouragement to read, and an opportunity to meet two of the actual players. The players visited each classroom and spoke on the importance of reading and then they presented students with tickets. What an awesome way to build community teamwork! LES loves the Gwinnett Gladiators!!"
– Laura Clark, Reading Specialist Lawrenceville Elementary School

"Rock Springs night was extremely well organized, safe and loads of fun! We were especially impressed with the amazing emphasis on making these hockey games fun events for the entire family. Most important of all, however, was the opportunity for our school families to be together in a fun and safe social setting. It was such a memorable evening, and we owe so much to your organization for initiating what we hope will be a regular activity for our school."
– Cheryl Wilson - Principal, Rock Springs Elementary

"It was a great addition! Thanks to the Gladiators organization for providing this opportunity. Fast paced reading, fast paced hockey---- what could be "cooler"?"
– Rhonda Davis - Media Specialist, K.E. Taylor Elementary

Since day one, every associate of this great team has been extremely friendly and helpful. We have never regretted becoming Season Ticket holders, and after seeing Saturdays game, I think we're in store for another great year. The players showed some real good form and they played together as a team, didn't see any "I's" out on the ice this season. See you this weekend for two great games.
