Group: Stony Plain FunTeam Hockey
Nominator: Cody Parent
John is an Assistant Coach with the hockey group out in Stony Plain and his been with the group for 8 years. He has 2 boys that play in the group but is always the first to help out and sign up to volunteer. John will be the first to admit that he isn't the best skater but he always there to help the kids get better. He'll offer extra player help, get players into goalie gear and help tie their skates.
Stony Plain FunTeam Hockey is one of our few groups that still play outside. And no matter the conditions John will stay positive reinforcing the fun aspect of the game when clearly that might be the last thing on everyone's minds!But no matter the temperature John has a great time watching the players develop their hockey skills and have a smile on their face when they play.
Thank you to Cody for his nomination but hopefully John, you understand that the smiles on those players' faces are because of the great work you do.
