Volunteer of the Year - Tara Porcu
Crowfoot Volunteer of the Year:
Crowfoot is extremely lucky to have a fantastic volunteer base of coaches, managers, coordinators, and parents. Choosing our volunteer of the year was an extremely difficult task as we have so many deserving, good people that keep “raising the bar”, while still keeping focus on maintaining a fun environment for our hockey players. Our deepest gratitude goes out to all of our volunteers that generously donate hundreds of hours to make our Association a great place to play hockey and make friends.
The Crowfoot Board of Directors is pleased to announce that our
volunteer of the year for the 2013/2014 season is Tara Porcu.
Tara has displayed a dedication and commitment towards Crowfoot that can only be described as outstanding. This season Tara was our Pee Wee Division Coordinator and Manager of the Pee Wee 5 team. Tara also has a child that plays in Bantam. This is in addition to her “real job” that takes up 6 days per week at the Arbour Lake Community Centre.
Tara has been a long standing exemplary volunteer at Crowfoot which has included previous seasons as the Atom Coordinator, assistant Atom Coordinator, and manager of several teams.
Numerous hours were spent by Tara preparing for the season as the Pee Wee Coordinator. An average family likely has no idea the workload placed on a Division Coordinator to prepare for hockey evaluations and the season in general. This all has to happen in the summer months well ahead of time. There is a need for significant organizational and communication skills.
It is inevitable that some families are unhappy with their child’s placement, coaching, or running of the team. These issues usually landed with Tara to resolve as the Pee Wee Coordinator. Tara displayed excellent conflict resolution skills in dealing with these issues throughout the season. All matters were dealt with in a calm, respectful, and professional manner.
Tara also acted as a mentor to some of Crowfoot’s new Division Coordinators and team manager’s which enabled those folks to operate effectively with their respective teams/age groups. Tara was always just a phone call away and always willing to help.
Tara, please accept our heartfelt thanks for your extraordinary work with Crowfoot for 2013/2014 season and over the last few years. It is much appreciated and the Crowfoot Minor Hockey Association is a better organization thanks to people like you! Your selfless dedication to Crowfoot has not gone without notice. We are very lucky to have you volunteering for us.
