Oakville Hockey Development (OHD) Program "Skill Builder", Town of Oakville

At Wilcox, we've implemented a new volunteer program for our employees to get involved in the community. This employee, in particular, has gone above and beyond!

Technical Sales Manager, Tony Wong, has volunteered as a hockey instructor with the OHD for 10 years. Specifically, Tony coaches the multi-level skills acquisition program:
"Try out the sport or learn more about the game. Perfect for children entering or playing house league hockey. We'll provide three levels of drills and skills instruction and a 1:10 instructor ratio. Instructors emphasize personal achievement and participation! Full equipment including a neck guard and a mouth guard are mandatory. All players must also wear a CSA-approved hockey helmet and cage. This is an introductory level hockey course but some prior skating ability is required. Age: 6-12"
"He ensures that the students are taught proper skating and hockey technique in a fun and engaging environment. He always makes sure each student gets individual attendant to the skills that they are working on. He ensures that they are enjoying the program learning at their skill level and having fun when on the ice. We've had many repeat customers over the years due in large part to Tony's commitment to the students." Bob Pawliw, Recreation Coordinator

Why does he do it?
"To give back to the community and help the kids improve their skills. Not only hockey skills but life lessons with fundamentals of work ethic, dedication and commitment whilst having fun at the same time"
