Volunteer of the Year Awards


McKnight Hockey is lucky to have amazing volunteers that go above and beyond. Each year we recognize and celebrate some of these dedicated volunteers.


Here is a list of some very deserving recipients!  Thank you!!

2020/21 McKnight's Volunteer of the Year Awards

To say 2020-2021 was a crazy season would be an understatement, and it is why we felt it was important to acknowledge all those who volunteered their time to help us make this season possible. There was no role too small as every contribution helped, sometimes in more ways than you think.  So thank you to everyone who took time out of their days/weeks/months to make the world of their skater and those around them better!
There were some members who went above and beyond and when asked to help us in selecting this season's Volunteers of the Year, you answered.  We were flooded with words of thanks for many McKnight members but it was five people in particular who received the most words of recognition. It is these five that we have selected as our McKnight Volunteers of the Year and we would like to say a special thanks!
