Every week the Ottawa 67’s and HEO recognize one of the many unsung hockey heroes integral to our local community with the HEO Volunteer of the Week. This week’s honouree is Jeff Sweet of the Nepean Minor Hockey Association.
Jeff has four children in the Nepean Minor Hockey Association, three sons and a daughter, and has been volunteering with NMHA in varying capacities since 2009. He started out as an IP Parent Rep (for six years), although he has held almost every staff position in hockey, such as head coach, assistant coach, trainer, and manager over the years.
Jeff takes an active role with all his children and is currently serving as an assistant coach on each of their teams. He strives to give his time equally to them, as they rise through the ranks of minor hockey. He enjoys and is committed to supporting the development of their skills, while also enjoying the sport he loves so much.
