CYO CELEBRATES 60TH ANNIVERSARY
The CYO celebrates 60 years of minor hockey in the Durham region. In the Winter of 1953-54, the Christian Brothers, teachers at St. Gregory’s School, made a rink in the school yard and organized the first hockey team. Father Wilfred Firth, Associate Pastor, was enthusiastic about the idea and called on Bob Black to see what he could come up with. That year the CYO Oshawa formed three teams—PeeWee, Bantam, and Midget.
Bob Black was a founding member of the CYO Hockey Association in Durham Region and instrumental in supporting Oshawa youth in hockey. His legacy as an inspirational leader in Oshawa’s hockey community will not be forgotten.
We celebrate Bob Blacks efforts each February with the Bob Black Memorial Hockey Tournament. In 2013 over 70 teams from throughout Ontario attended the Bob Black and the focus was on what meant the most to Mr. Black, kids having fun playing hockey.
