National Volunteer Week: Jason Lyons

Hockey New Brunswick would like to recognize one of our devoted volunteers on the female hockey development side, Jason Lyons.

Jason is currently a member of the Hockey New Brunswick Female Commission, and he serves as the Commission representative on the HNB Elite Hockey Commission and Minor Council. In addition to his responsibilities with the Female Commission, he was Chair of the Female Elite Hockey Task team during the 2019-2020 season, serves as the Female Bantam AAA Coordinator, and has been a branch representative for HNB at a number of Regional Championships. Prior to his tenure as a volunteer with HNB, Jason served as the President of the Greater Miramichi Female Association; he’s also coached at the AAA and grassroots level of female hockey for a number of years.

Jason, along with Darren Gallen have organized an Under 13 Skills Camp for female hockey players which serves as an introduction to the HNB High Performance Program. The Skills Camp has been held the last two seasons over Christmas and has been a great opportunity for female hockey players to get together from all areas of the province.

“Jason has been outstanding volunteer for female hockey in New Brunswick. He’s an extremely dedicated, knowledgeable and detailed oriented volunteer, who always goes above and beyond what’s asked of him. We are very fortunate to have Jason involved in a variety of different roles with Hockey New Brunswick, as he’s played an integral part in growing female hockey across the province”, said Anita Scott, HNB Female Commission Chair.

For all of your contributions in growing female hockey in the province, we cannot say thank you enough.

Your time, commitment and wealth of knowledge help to create lasting memories for female hockey players throughout the province.
