About George Parson
The award is in the name of George Parson, a long time WMHA hockey Dad and former WMHA coach. George had a passion for hockey and instilling a lifelong love of the game to those he was involved with. He made many contributions to Woolwich Minor hockey for a number of years and always had a positive and memorable impact on the staff he worked with and players he developed, both on and off the ice. This award is a thank you to the recipient for their commitment and dedication to the players, the Woolwich Minor Hockey Association and the love of the game.
