Hockey Canada Community

About Hockey Canada Ambassadors


Hockey can’t happen without the volunteers who give the time in your community, and the young players with the passion for the game. Hockey Canada wants to share the stories of players overcoming obstacles with the help of hockey, and of volunteers, coaches, and parents dedicating their lives to their community because of the love of the game.

Nominate someone in your community and your story may be featured here. Every month a new Hockey Canada Ambassador will be unveiled, sharing how hockey happens across our country.

From multiple roles with the Chilliwack Chiefs, to her executive positions with the Chilliwack MHA and Chilliwack FC, Andrea Laycock is everywhere in the Fraser Valley.
