Garry Young Memorial Volunteer of the Year Winner: Jessie Rogers
Our winner this year has been the Trainer of our GK Midget team for the past two seasons. Over this time Jessie has proved herself to be an invaluable member of this team. Coach Ryan Thompson let me know that Jessie is an arrive first and last to leave type of person. Her dedication to making sure the boys are both healthy and have what they need is evident to everyone that comes in contact with her. No matter if making sure the boys have tape, their water bottles are disinfected, or injuries are taped and taken care of, both for “one of her boys” or the other team. Having a person of Jessie’s calibre at GK giving up so much of her time is something we appreciate so much. We congratulate and thank Jessie for all that she does.
Barry Sands Memorial Coach of the Year Winner: Kevin Griffin
Kevin has been with GK as an Assistant and Head Coach for many years. This year he guided the 2006 Minor Bantam’s to their best record ever at the AAA Level. He moved this team forward by what some could argue was “leaps and bounds”. In the coaching style of Barry Sands, for whom this award is named after, Kevin guided his players with accountability and a team first mentality. Everyone was expected to work and practice like you play. He had the respect of his players and never forgot that even when your working hard, their time spent at the rink still had a lot of fun times. The culmination of these efforts was a trip to OMHA semi-finals, that unfortunately was cut off midway through the series by the COVID-19 virus. No matter, this was a remarkable year and we congratulate Kevin on being the GK Jr Gaels Coach of the Year. Thank you Kevin.
