The 2019-20 hockey season came to an abrupt halt on March 13, 2020. With the numerous restrictions in play Hockey Calgary was forced to cancel many of our events. One such event was our Awards Gala, where we celebrate the great volunteers who make the overall hockey program in Calgary such a success. Now that we are in full swing with the 2020-21 season we wanted take some time to acknowledge the people and organizations that went above and beyond in 2019-20.
At this same time I also want to acknowledge the tremendous volunteer support that we have had to kick off this season. The start up to the 2020-21 season has been no easy feat, with the government restrictions, physical distancing protocols, spectator guidelines and cohort management required has been extremely difficult and time consuming. The volunteer community within our Associations have been even more committed and dedicated then ever and we are truly blessed to have such loyal volunteers. From the staff of Hockey Calgary and our board of directors I want to thank you for keeping the game going, and more importantly keeping the game safe for our kids.
Please join me in congratulating the following 2019-20 award winners for their continued commitment to their Associations and the Hockey Calgary program.
