Pam and Darryl Hartman are this year's winners of the prestigious Randy Gregg Volunteer Award.

"The Randy Gregg Award is a very honourable award," said Pam Hartman. "Randy Gregg himself is such an inspiring and amazing man. Darryl and I are very honoured to represent Drumheller and FunTeam Alberta in recognition of this award."

The honour is awarded annually to a FunTeam volunteer in recognition of his or her service to the organization. The award is named for the founder of FunTeam Hockey, former Edmonton Oilers and Canadian Olympian, Dr. Randy Gregg.

Despite its name, FunTeam Hockey isn't all fun and games.

"FunTeam is still a very competitive sport," explained Hartman. "I think that there's a lot of misconceptions about it in many communities. It is still a full, competitive hockey program. We teach all of the same fundamentals as any other group organization. It's just based a little bit more on a fun aspect."

Hartman has four children: two children have completed the program and are now taking on leadership roles within the organization, and two are still playing FunTeam hockey.

In addition to FunTeam, the Hartmans are also involved with Drumheller Minor Hockey.

"There's definitely room for both in the community," pointed out Hartman. "There are a lot of people in the community that are looking for that little bit less involvement, or kids who want to play multi-sports and just don't have the time for [minor hockey]. This program works for them."

Congratulations to Pam and Darryl Hartman!

From FunTeam Alberta:

Thanks to their unselfish commitment and desire to promote FunTeam Alberta's principles, Pam and Darryl have helped Drumheller FunTeam Hockey grow into the successful community program it is today. They are very well rounded, dedicated people who enjoy giving back to their community. They both jumped in feet first, Darryl as a coach and Pam working behind the scenes with registration and event managing duties. Their four children are also FunTeam participants and have followed their parents lead as stand up community members helping out the group. The apples don't fall too far from the tree!
