Esso Medals of Achievement
Not just building champions on ice, but champions in life.
Established in 1981, the Esso Medals and Certificates of Achievement program has become part of the fabric of Canadian community hockey. To date nearly two million medals of achievement and over 30 million of certificates of participation have been awarded to young boys and girls on behalf of Esso. Under the program, three medals of achievement: most improved player, most dedicated player, and most sportsmanlike player, are available to every hockey team registered with Hockey Canada. As well, each team can receive certificates of participation to recognize the efforts of every player.
The emphasis of the Medals and Certificates of Achievement program has never been to reward a player for having a great slap shot or superior skating skills. Instead, it recognizes players who contribute to the game of hockey through dedication, effort and fair play. By rewarding those qualities, the program hopes to go beyond hockey, to build champions in life.
