Saanich MHA wins Association of the Year Award
To All SMHA Members
On Sunday May 28 I was very honored to accept the VIAHA ASSOCIATION OF THE YEAR 2016-17 award on behalf of SMHA.
I want to thank the entire 2016 -17 Executive, some of which are no longer on the Board, for all their work and input into improving SMHA. I would also, like to thank the coaches, managers, and safety personnel for all their volunteer hours. Most of all though, the players and parents, who are the reason we do what we do.
Also, our friends and partners in the Rep Hockey Coop Project at Victoria Minor Hockey Association (VMHA) and their Board, who have played an important role in Saanich being given this award. VMHA Past President Chris Atchison has been an wealth of knowledge and a huge help to me personally. Al Walker, SMHA former President who saw the big picture, and laid the foundation for the development of the Coop program.
This award is a great honour for our association, and we will proudly be hanging the banner at Pearkes Arena in the near future
