Gigi Douglas is Trails West’s Hockey Calgary Volunteer of the Year for 2021-2022 Season.
Excerpt from Gigi’s nomination:
Gigi has been a core volunteer for Trails West for many years now. Gigi has served as the Age Group Coordinator for at least one age group for over 10 years. The AGC is a time consuming job, especially during evaluations that chases many away from the role after one or two years. Gigi has performed this duty faithfully and tirelessly. In addition to performing the AGC role, Gigi has been team manager for one of her boys every single year they have been in hockey. The clincher for Gigi is the fact that she picks up all the little duties around the association that someone needs to do, but are hard to find takers for. This season, we were without a tournament coordinator and were having difficulty recruiting volunteers due to residual Covid affects. Gigi took the role over, planned and executed a very successful Trails West Cup over Thanksgiving weekend under the backdrop of other tournaments being cancelled, schedule changes, and participant uncertainty. To aid us one more time, Gigi has accepted the role of coordinating our U15 and Couture Cup events in April which is a very popular year end event for our older age groups that is making a return after two year hiatus. Gigi has picked this event up and has it progressing with renewed excitement. Gigi is truly a core cog in keeping our association going.
Trails West would like to extend our utmost gratitude to Gigi for the countless hours and dedication she has provided our association.
THANK YOU GIGI!
