Bruce Romero receives Lynn King Volunteer Award

At the recent End of Season Celebration for the Glenwood Springs Youth Hockey Association, Midget (U-18/U-16) team manager Bruce Romero was awarded the Lynn King Volunteer Award for his selfless volunteering over the past six seasons as a team manager.

Midget Head Coach Tim Cota said of Bruce, “He epitomizes what any coach wants in a team manager. He proactively takes care of all the off-ice related activities such as registrations, tournaments and travel so the coaching staff can successfully prepare the team for games.”

In January, Bruce coordinated the Midget Team’s participation in a tournament in Las Vegas which the Midget team won by beating British Columbia, 4-1.

Grizzly Hockey director Timothy “TK” Kwiatkowski added, “Not only did Bruce support the Midget team, he also volunteered to train team managers for our younger age groups from Mite (U-8) to Bantam (U-14).”

The Lynn King Volunteer Award is named after Lynn King who, as Kwiatkowski shared, “set the standard for selfless volunteering and dedication for Grizzly Hockey.” Lynn King sadly passed away in June 2005 at the age of 44, and she is recognized every year by the Glenwood Springs Youth Hockey Association through the volunteer award in her honor.
