Volunteers Aren’t Always Easy to Spot, but They’re Easy to Recognize Through the RBC Local Hockey Leaders Program
The RBC Local Hockey Leaders program is a national initiative aimed at recognizing and rewarding those “behind-the-scenes” hockey volunteers who dedicate their time to supporting grassroots hockey in their community while helping young athletes realize their potential.

They can be found working the concession stand at the local arena, fundraising for new equipment, repairing uniforms or opening the arena at 5am for a 6am game.

This year, the RBC Local Hockey Leaders Program will recognize and award thirteen hockey volunteers from across Canada and their communities.

Each RBC Local Hockey Leaders winner will receive:

$10,000 towards a minor hockey cause in their community
a trip for two to Toronto to be recognized at a special ceremony at the Hockey Hall of Fame
a signed Team Canada jersey

In addition, for the first time, the names of all nominees submitted for the program will be featured in the RBC Local Hockey Leaders display case at the Hockey Hall of Fame.
