GC of the Season Awards


Games Coordinators are essential to ESSC leagues and play a huge role in ensuring that all players enjoy themselves each and every night. The ESSC GC Team is continuously growing and although there are many excellent members out at the games, each season the Club recognizes a select few with the GC of the Season Award.

 

Each winner is nominated through player submissions, ESSC Staff recommendations, and/or based off the Field Staff Manager and GC Head Trainer evaluations. The goal is to award those that display a positive and friendly attitude, while at the same time getting involved with the games and providing players with the best experience possible.

Games Coordinator Bio
Max Wagg
 
Sport: Multi-Sport
Rookie Season:  Winter 2018

 

My name is Max and I have been a GC with ESSC for four seasons now (Rookie Season was Winter 2018), mostly GCing turf soccer but also covering a lot of multisport shifts, mostly handball and ultimate. Fun fact: I have been to nine different countries with various national and provincial handball teams, including: Serbia, Colombia, Mexico, and most recently Greenland.

I love playing a variety of sports, but there just are not enough days in the week for me to cram them all in; until I can figure that schedule out, I will be happily GCing instead!

Christian Tremblay

Sport: Floor Hockey
Rookie Season: Spring 2017

 

I have been playing for the ESSC since around 2006, but steady since 2010. I first started on Individuals teams, and besides a summer season playing slow pitch, I've only played floor hockey. I've been with my current team, the Goal Diggers since 2012 and we won two championships since... so it's true that winning comes second! I decided to join the Game Coordinators' Team in the Spring of 2017 and this was my 7th season. I've learned a lot as a GC and as I player I now appreciate the work of GCs a lot more! Great job all of you GCs out there and like Rick Green says: keep your stick on the ice.

Basketball is my passion and I’ve been playing since I was 4 years old. I have moved across Alberta and across the world to continue to play this sport. I love having a job where I get to watch people enjoy ball as much as I do!
