Thank a volunteer week - Feb 22 to Mar 1
Submitted By WebAdmin on Friday, February 21, 2020
The Ontario Minor Hockey Association is highlighting and celebrating the critical and often overlooked role of hockey volunteers, bringing awareness during the annual Thank a Volunteer Week from February 22-March 1, 2020.



Off the ice or on, whether you see them or not, there is an extremely devoted group of parents and volunteers who keep minor hockey in motion and ensure the best experience for the kids who play the game. Thank a Volunteer Week will be highlighted through volunteer video profiles and motivational tools to attract new volunteers.

“Volunteers are the pillars of the minor hockey experience and without them the foundation of the game simply wouldn’t exist. Their commitment of time and determination serves not just our teams but our communities across the province,” says Ian Taylor, Executive Director of the OMHA. “This annual event is just one way we can all recognize volunteer efforts and encourage others to share that same passion and pleasure they get out of their work.”

  • Total number of training modules/courses completed by volunteers: 22,250

Take a minute to recognize the dedicated few, in your community.
