KEITH HIGGINS - SPORT AURORA – CYGHA VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR

We are very pleased to have this opportunity to participate in Sport Aurora’s 10TH annual Volunteer recognition event and recognize Keith Higgins as the CYGHA volunteer of the year.




Keith has been an enthusiastic and consistent volunteer with the CYGHA for a number of years. He’s been supporting his daughter Kaia’s teams since she started with the Panthers as a Panther Cub, and is currently on staff with her U13 A team, but his contributions go above and beyond hockey.

Keith’s strong commitment to community support and providing the best possible opportunities for our members is endless. He is always ready to step up and help whenever there is a need.  He and his family have participated at the Aurora Home Town Hockey event, the Panther’s 25th anniversary year kick off, the CYGHA Marlies event in Sept 2019 and even took on the task of wearing the Mascot at the Town of  Aurora’s celebration to honor Rob Thomas as he brought home the Stanley Cup in 2019.   It was a sweltering hot day… but that did not stop Keith from energizing all the locals who came out to congratulate Rob and show our pride on this accomplishment. 

He also took on the role to coordinate all the on ice training for the Panther’s NHL/First Shift program in 2019-20.    This program provided hockey opportunity for young girls from 5 – 12 who have never played hockey before to experience the game we all love.   He took on the on ice training program but also coordination of all the volunteers needed to run a successful program.

If there’s a local community event, you are sure to see Keith encouraging our young members to support our community, whether it’s the Aurora street fair, Santa Claus parade or collecting donations for the Food Pantry.

We, the CYGHA, want to say thank you for all your good work and are very pleased to recognize your contribution to girls’ hockey, but also to the community in general.
