Congratulations Darryl Holt
Congratulations to NSMHA Referee in Chief Darryl Holt for being named the Hockey Alberta North Zone Referee Committee Chairman's Award Winner for the 2015-2016 season!
Darryl was recognized by the North Zone Referee Committee for his significant dedication and commitment to minor hockey.Darryl was also recognized by NSMHA as the Association's Volunteer of the Year for the 2015-2016 season!
Darryl started his officiating career back in 1998 and still today continues to be an active part in the New Sarepta Hockey Association as the Ref in Chief. For the past 18 years he has been a committed official to New Sarepta and Hockey Alberta. He became the Ref in Chief in 2002 for New Sarepta Minor Hockey and every year says he is going to let it go but his commitment to the mentoring of New Sarepta officials keeps him coming back. In 2010, Darryl had a few health issues and had to step back from his Ref In Chief position and let others in the association help him out. As soon as he got the ok from his doctor, he was back out supervising from the stands and slowly getting back out on the ice, shadowing the officials. Darryl has always kept up to date with the new rules and attending all the North Zone meetings that he could.
Darryl’s dedication to being the Ref in Chief is beyond any words. Darryl has not had kids playing in hockey for many many years and yet he still commits every weekend to being at the rink for all the other kids in the community. He is there making sure that the new and the experienced officials are doing everything right. He skates with every new official at least 2 to 3 times or until he feels that they are capable to be on their own and then continues to be up in the stands for the rest of the year watching them and giving them advice.
When Darryl decides to “Hang Up His Skates” there will be a huge void left within the New Sarepta Minor Hockey Association. His commitment to the officials/players/parents/executives in the community is over the top. We appreciate everything that he does for us and the mentorship he gives our officials. Darryl goes above and beyond the call of the duty to mentor our officials to be the best that they can be “which is excellence!”
