Steve has been involved with the hockey community in Halton Hills for years. Coach, Instructor, Executive and Fund Raiser, Steve has done it all. 
He started in 2000 – coaching his oldest son Tyler on the Sr Tyke Blackhawks. After that it was complete involvement with the hockey community. Steve was a coach in the House league program for Cory and Lindsey, the rep program (Tyler, Cory) and the Twisters program (Lindsey).  During this time, he became a convenor of the Novice House league program, while coaching his children. 
He began assisting with IP which he eventually took over as the IP coordinator. Steve’s passion for nurturing young talent both on and off the ice has been relentless. Introducing young coaches to the program allowed for 14-year-olds to get their CHIP certification and volunteer on Sundays as an IP instructor granting them community hours for high school. Additionally, he introduced the 4-year-olds back into IP and always left the players with a memorable visit from Santa and his elves during the last skate before Christmas.  
Steve was also elected to the Director of Jr House League, then onto the VP of Rep. During this time from 2000 to 2012, it became very apparent that the community needed more ice surfaces. 
Steve left Minor Hockey and joined the HHAUG (Halton Hills Arena User Group) as a co-chair to help facility the movement of showing the town that new facilities were needed and could be funded, via HHAUG. Probably the most memorable event during this time was Steve organizing a march that stretched from the parking lot at Mold Masters Sportsplex to CTK. This included all the user groups and their families from both Georgetown and Acton. It was prior to and in support of the Special Town Hall meeting held at CTK due to the immense interest from the Halton Hills community in getting new arena facilities. 
Today, Steve continues to contribute to the Halton Hills Minor Hockey Association (HHMHA) as the High-Risk Manager, embodying a persistent dedication to the sport’s growth and safety. 
The Georgetown Hockey Heritage Council is proud to select Steve Highfield as the 2024 recipient of the Hockey Heritage Award.
