ONTARIO MINOR HOCKEY ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES ANNUAL “THANK A VOLUNTEER WEEK” CELEBRATION Inaugural week aimed to appreciate and showcase volunteers set for February 25-March 3.

Off the ice or on, whether you see them or not, there is an extremely devoted group of parents and volunteers who keep minor hockey in motion and ensure the best experience for the kids who play the game.  We are dedicating an entire week to highlight and celebrate the critical and often overlooked role of hockey volunteers by announcing an annual awareness initiative during the last week of February each year.
The inaugural launch of Thank a Volunteer Week is set for February 25-March 3, 2019.

The OMHA is using this week to recognize everyone who spends their time to enrich the lives of kids through hockey.We have created collateral including a press release, logo, infographic and social media cards to help us promote this new initiative and hope we can build on the success in future years. 

Starting on February 25th, we are asking for your help to share the message of thanking those who’s dedication is only matched by their passion for minor hockey.

THE FIRST GOAL IS HAVING FUN. The Timbits Minor Sports Program is a community-oriented sponsorship program that provides opportunities for kids aged four to nine to play house league sports. The philosophy of the program is not based on winning or losing, but on learning a new sport, making new friends, and just being a kid. Tim Hortons currently supports more than 300,000 children on teams in hockey, soccer, ringette, lacrosse, softball and baseball leagues in Canada. Our sponsorship includes jerseys, coaching tools, participation medals and a local “Timbits Jamboree” to help kick off, or wrap up each season.
