NOHA Volunteer of the Month - November 2023 Steve Anstey

Steve Anstey is a dedicated Minor Hockey volunteer who has taken up a variety of roles, including Equipment Manager, Coach, Vice President, and President of Nickel Centre Minor Hockey Association.


A lifelong participant of many different sports throughout his life, Steve decided it was time to give back. He began his coaching journey in 2016 at the Tyke (U7) division both in Minor Hockey with Nickel Centre as well as Nickel Centre Soccer. He joined the Board of Directors of Nickel Centre Minor Hockey Association as a Convenor and worked together with a strong group of volunteers to learn how to best support the participants of the Association.


He served as an Equipment Manager and a Vice President, and helped spearhead the transition from Nickel Centre Flyers to Nickel Centre Blast, as well as countless other initiatives. During the fall of 2020 in the COVID-19 pandemic, Steve became the President of Nickel Centre Minor Hockey Association, and for the next 18 months, worked diligently to keep programming alive during such a difficult time. The Board of Directors launched an in-house development program for players and goalies, which has continued to grow.

Steve has remained a dedicated coach while he took on a reduced role on the Board of Directors as the Try Out Chair and Ice Convenor. Steve is always looking for ways to give back and make the most out of programming for every participant.


Steve is a thoughtful, dedicated volunteer who’s always ready to do what he can to make sure the kids have the best hockey experience possible. His time and devotion has been noticed by many, and the NOHA is incredibly honoured to present him with the Volunteer of the Month award for November, 2023.


Congratulations, Steve, and well deserved.
