OMHA Thank a Volunteer Week
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 26-March 3, 2024.

We recognize the impact that volunteers have in delivering minor hockey across the province, from Association administration to managing a team. From working with municipalities to schedule or ice or ensuring players are registered for the season, to organizing community Hockey Gives Back events to creating a carpool schedule, these things all add up in the big picture. Associations rely on a few to do the work of many.

Volunteers are an extremely dedicated group of parents, community members and administrators that give their time to ensure a positive minor hockey experience for our young athletes. The OMHA takes great pride in having an outstanding group of volunteers across its centres.


Some volunteer statistics to consider from a typical season:

More than 30,000 people volunteer within the OMHA

Contributions of time include coaches, trainers, managers, timekeepers, fundraisers and administrators, with coaches leading the way by percentage

Ratio of volunteers to players is nearly 1:3

Georgian Shores is fortunate to have many hands working together to ensure that our youth are able to play hockey in our small towns. A BIG Thank you goes out to all of our volunteers!!
