Tournament honours volunteer’s passion

An annual hockey tournament celebrating the life of a long-time volunteer is scheduled for this weekend.

The seventh annual Gil Martin Memorial Peewee AAA hockey tournament begins tomorrow (Friday) and runs until Sunday at the Walnut Grove Sportsplex.

Martin passed away in 2005 and the tournament was created the following year in his honour.

He had coached in various age divisions within the LMHA and also served on the association’s executive.

Martin firmly believed motivation, a positive healthy attitude and effective communication to be intrinsic elements of quality instruction and ultimately success in sports and life.

The three-day tournament will feature high calibre teams from the Interior, Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.
