LEE ANN SANDERSON MEMORIAL AWARD: Lee Ann Sanderson was the true definition of a “hockey mom”. She volunteered at many levels of Elmvale Minor Hockey. Not only was she a trainer and mentor but she also played hockey for many years. Lee Ann lost her lengthy battle with cancer in the fall of 2010. Even up to this point she continued to play and support her 2 sons Jacob and Gavin Sanderson. This award is presented to a girl at the IP level who displays qualities not only important in hockey but in life as well. This girl displays a willingness to learn, a desire to do better, and a love not only for sport but for life itself. But most important of all is being able to face any challenge regardless of the degree of difficulty with a positive attitude and the willingness to succeed. Please nominate one girl from your team, the executive will vote on the winner.

Congratulations to: Mae Chant & Blakely Potter


Nelson King Bursery – U18 Midget Age Lifetime Award (Voted on by the King Family)

The Nelson King Bursary is to help an individual in their future endeavours whether it is university, college, trade school or other. In Nelson's younger years he did some refereeing, was a part of the Elmvale hockey system and enjoyed watching his son play up through the ranks of Elmvale Minor Hockey. Nelson later turned his attention to enjoy watching his 5 grandsons who all played in Elmvale. Nelson was a committed father, grandfather and fan of Elmvale Minor Hockey throughout his years.
