Gordon Juckes Award – Gary McFarlane 

The name Gary McFarlane has become synonymous with hockey development in the Ontario Hockey Federation. That’s what spending two decades devoted to the game – and the people in the game – will do. For his outstanding achievement and involvement in the development of amateur hockey in Canada, Gary McFarlane is the recipient of the 2019 Gordon Juckes Award.

Gary’s No. 1 priority has always been development: of the player, of the coach, of the organization. He has served on numerous tournament committees and minor hockey councils, and held innumerable roles for local house leagues: coach, referee, treasurer, president and executive-at-large. He’s currently the Team Alliance U16 Director of Operations.

At the national level, Gary has been equally generous sharing his expertise. He was an NCCP Master Course conductor. And he provided his technical expertise in supporting the rewriting of High Performance 1 written assignments and Development 1 curriculum and program requirements. He has also been an Initiation Program committee member through ALLIANCE Hockey. Amateur hockey in Ontario is better because of his dedication.
