2017 marks the Outdoor Hockey League’s (OHL) 25th year of operation and the 20th anniversary of the Ehrlo Sport Library. Sport Venture’s most popular and well-known league has grown exponentially since it began, with over 200 youth participating in the 2016-17 season.
Susan Lytle has been an OHL volunteer for nearly all of the league’s 25 years. In that time, she has met countless amazing youth, as well as others who share her passion for helping them experience organized sport.
“You hear a lot of people talk about how kids need something constructive to do so they stay out of trouble. I used to think, ‘somebody should do something about that’ – and then I realized that I am somebody, so I did,” she said.
Susan sat down with us recently to share some of her favourite memories of her time as a volunteer with the OHL.
We are inviting you to join us in celebrating our anniversaries!
