Mike Landucci Development Award - Officiating
The unique circumstances of the 2020-21 season required BC Hockey to adapt quickly to unexpected instructional conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Dan Hanoomansingh was at the forefront of this effort taking the lead volunteer role in adapting and implementing BC Hockey’s annual curriculum virtually This was a responsibility that went above and beyond his appointed role as Female High Performance Officiating Facilitator. Dan built an exceptional team of instructors and produced a focussed and organized inventory of instructional modules to ensure our officials were ready and supported for the uncertainty of the past season. Dan was also heavily involved in ongoing engagement with BC Hockey officials across via in-season webinars and continued to find productive ways to grow the Female High Performance Officiating program. In fact, during a season where there was an overall decline in officiating registration, the Female High-Performance program grew in total participants during the 2020-21 season, under Dan’s leadership. During 2020-21 Dan was selected by Hockey Canada as a member of the National Officiating Curriculum Task Team and was recently hired to the Hockey Canada staff as the new Manager of Officiating, with a focus on grass roots development.
