Debbie Cooper Memorial Award

This annual award focuses on the essence of what Debbie embodied.  It is about a particular volunteer, player, or team who has displayed a commitment to our community, someone who works tirelessly in whatever role or aspect of the JDFMHA community they aspire to.  This could be a referee or linesman, someone that sits in for the time clock game in/game out, a fundraiser, a coach or manager that goes the extra mile, an arena employee, and a divisional manager that puts in endless hours.  These are but a few examples of the type of person that would be given this award.
