Stratford, ON - The 2016 ALLIANCE Hockey Awards Banquet was hosted on June 3, 2016 in Grand Bend, ON.  The annual event marked the conclusion of the 2015-2016 hockey season and recognized those volunteers who provided tireless service to ALLIANCE Hockey.

ALLIANCE Hockey Awards Program

The ALLIANCE Hockey Awards Program was introduced during the 2001-02 season to formally recognize the efforts and achievements of ALLIANCE Hockey members who dedicate themselves to furthering the great game of hockey.
The inaugural set of awards were presented at the 2001 ALLIANCE Hockey Annual General Meeting. The tradition has since continued with awards being bestowed upon local Association individuals who have dedicated themselves to the ideals of ALLIANCE Hockey; who have worked tirelessly for the improvement of their local Association and ALLIANCE Hockey and who have had a notable impact on the game.

ALLIANCE Hockey Awards include:
  • Coach of the Year Award
  • Trainer of the Year Award
  • Referee of the Year Award
  • Volunteer of the Year Award
  • Award of Merit

ALLIANCE Hockey appreciates that there are many individuals dedicating their time and efforts to making this great game even better for those who participate across  the ALLIANCE and was pleased to recognize the 2016 recipients along with their nominating Associations on Friday evening.  Winning recipients were presented with a special plaque at the ALLIANCE Hockey Annual Awards Banquet and a commemorative plaque also hangs in the ALLIANCE Hockey Corporate Office recognizing the achievements of all recipients.
