2017 Spirit of Sport Winner - Steve Milne
Submitted By John Fryer on Tuesday, November 07, 2017
Our very own Steve Milne was recognized last week at the London Sports Council – Sport for All Ceremony as the “2017 Spirit of Sport Volunteer of the Year”. This is a very prestigious award as many Londoners are nominated but only one recipient is chosen each year.

Steve won the Volunteer of the Year for with his work with our London Devilettes Girls Hockey Association. Steve is currently serving the organization as a member of the Board of Directors and as Head Coach of the Peewee AA hockey team.

Here are some of the words shared about Steve at last week’s ceremony:


Steve Milne started his volunteering with the London Devilettes on ice in the Tyke program in 2009. Although starting on ice, he soon developed a passion to advocate for Girls Hockey as he found it under supported.
Since that initial year, he has been heavily involved within the organization in coaching, convening, administering and philanthropic aspects. On the ice, as a head coach Steve enjoys helping his athletes develop the skills and personal characteristics that will assist them in their future.

Off the ice, you can find Steve working hard behind the scenes on almost every aspect of the organization. As a Board Member and Director of Sponsorship, Steve has played a key role in the re-branding the London Devilettes and marketing Girls Hockey to increase both enrolment and awareness.  Working as the Chair on the Procurement Committee, he also has worked on reducing costs through sponsorship and local partnerships.  

Steve believes “Girls deserve every opportunity the Boys have, as we aren’t just teaching hockey to players. We are creating the next generation of society’s leaders and are using hockey as a tool to do so.”

Please, take a moment to thank Steve for all that he does for our organization.

As we all know, without volunteers none of this would be possible.



Thanks Steve!
