Four years of dedication with Ponoka Minor Hockey has earned Teresa Hoffman the Dave Simanton Volunteer of the Year Award.

She gave countless hours of her time every day of the hockey season to ensure all minor hockey teams received necessary ice time.

“You’re trying to find enough ice time for everybody to play,” said Hoffman.

Organizing the 14 teams was definitely a challenge but she used her strong organizational skills to ensure ice time.

“I just feel really privileged to work with that group of people.”

She worked with the Town of Ponoka, North Central Minor Hockey League and any other Ponoka user groups that were part of the renting of the ice surfaces.

This position was a huge commitment that required a very dedicated and accommodating volunteer.

Ponoka Minor Hockey would like to recognize Teresa for a job well done.

Congratulations to Teresa Hoffmann on receiving the Dave Simanton Volunteer of Year Award.
