Group: Olds FunTeam Hockey
Nominator: Nicky Sereda
We are so excited to announce that Brooke Worthington of Olds FunTeam Hockey is a 2018 nominee for the Randy Gregg Volunteer Award! Below is the nomination from Drumheller FunTeam Hockey President Nicky Sereda.
"On behalf of Drumheller FunTeam we would like to nominate 22 year old Brooke Worthington for the 2018 FunTeam Alberta Randy Gregg Volunteer of the Year Award.
This young lady has been a member of FunTeam Alberta as a participant for 9 years plus as a full time group leader for the last 3 years with the Olds FunTeam Rec Hockey Program. At age 17 she began helping her parents with their group leader duties and took full reins of the group at age 19. She is in charge of all aspects of the Old’s program, from registration, organizing teams, games and refs as well as scheduling ice time and overseeing finances. Brooke is the Olds FunTeam liaison and contact person with all other FunTeam groups. 5 years ago she saw the importance of giving back and picked up the volunteer torch from her parents. Over that time she has proven herself as a very worthy volunteer for FunTeam Alberta promoting FunTeam principles. In addition to the group leader duties Brooke also refs many of the Junior and Varsity games each season. She continues to play hockey with an all ladies Rec Hockey Team which she herself organized and oversees. She is currently a 3rd year on-line student with SAIT.
As one who has been a part of FunTeam Alberta for the last 25 years it is refreshing and exciting to see someone like Brooke Worthington at her young age be willing to unselfishly give her time so that many of our youth can reap the benefits of what FunTeam Alberta has to offer. As an outside FunTeam group looking in we are more than impressed and respect the time and dedication that Brook Worthington gives to the Olds Fun Team Rec Hockey Club and FunTeam Alberta."
Thank you to Nicky and Drumheller FunTeam hockey for the kind words in Brooke's nomination. Congratulations to Brooke on her nomination and for the dedication she puts in to making Olds FunTeam hockey the successful program it is today.
