Peterborough Petes Recognize Chad Buchner as this Week's Local Minor Hockey Volunteer
(Peterborough, ON) - Chad Buchner, Coach for the Tier 1 U-10 Petes with the Peterborough Hockey Association (PHA) is recognized as this week's exceptional minor hockey volunteer. The Petes want to celebrate local minor hockey volunteers for their contribution to the planning, organizing and execution of local minor hockey's return to the play this season.
Buchner is described as a coach who goes above and beyond for his team. In addition to developing great hockey players and building their confidence on skates, he teaches them about the importance of giving back to the community.
"Coach Chad is an amazing role model for his players on and off the ice," says Tara Dummitt who nominated Buchner.
"He is always there for his kids and not only teaches them how to be a good teammate, he also teaches the kids about helping in our community and helping others that are less fortunate."
Each week the Petes will recognize and celebrate one volunteer from the PMHC, PHA, PGHA, and local adaptive hockey organizations who acknowledges that this hockey season has required additional time and effort to ensure a safe return for players to the rink.
The Petes welcome players, parents and other members of the minor hockey community to nominate deserving local volunteers by filling out this form .
Every Thursday Petes fans are encouraged to tune in to the Peterborough Petes Facebook page for TNL. Each episode of TNL features an exclusive Q&A with special celebrity guests, a musical performance, cooking segments, and merchandise offers.
