The Mississauga Terriers Hockey Club is proud to sponsor many awards for our players, as you will find on this page.
Joe Schembri Scholarship Fund
This is the most significant award given by the Terriers and is one of the most generous scholarships in the GTHL. It was created in 2004 in honour of the contribution Joe Schembri has made to the Terriers.
Joe was one of the founding members of the organization and became the face of the Terriers. Go here to see more about the special party we held to honour Joe.
In honour of his outstanding contribution for over a quarter century to the Mississauga Terriers we created, with the help of an anonymous donor, the Joe Schembri Scholarship.
The scholarship was first awarded for the 2004/2005 hockey season and will annually be given to a Terrier player. It is to be applied to this individual’s post-secondary education. We select the winner by evaluating academics, school co-curricular activities, community involvement, hobbies and general interests.
The scholarship committee, consisting of John Debling, Paul Thomas and Mike Loschiavo has a tremendously difficult task. It is obvious that apart from icing excellent hockey teams, the Mississauga Terriers, in partnership with family and community, is helping shape some exceptional young men.
The Terriers work hard to create a positive and successful attitude for the players and coaches. We like to think that players will want to stay with us for a number of years.
With that in mind we give a solid gold ring to every player, member of the coaching staff or the executive who have been with us for five consecutive years.
Reg Schembri Sportsmanship Award
The Terriers have also created the Reg Schembri Sportsmanship Award, named after Reg Schembri who died far too early from a heart attack. This is an award that is voted on by the players of each team. It’s given to the player who best exemplifies what it means to be a member of the Terriers. This is the kid who gives everything for his teammates. It’s not necessarily the biggest kid, the strongest kid or the one who scores the most goals. But it is the player who everyone on the team, including the coaches, respects.
