Jefferies named winner of the Aspin for Sports Executive of the Year
Kiara Jefferies has been named the 2023 recipient of the Jim Aspin Memorial Award for Executive of the Year.
Jefferies has been making her mark in local hockey and soccer since moving to North Bay in 2017. She was coach of the U7 FUNdamentals and U11 Ice Boltz in 2022 and was also an executive within the Ice Boltz system.

In 2023, Jefferies started the year as the Vice President of Jr. Lakers Girls Hockey and is now the President and under her guidance the club has seen exponential growth in both participant numbers as well as in their day-to-day operations.
Jefferies is also a member of the board for Nipissing District Soccer, which was able to stay operational during the COVID-19 pandemic and allowed children, youth and adult leagues to have a safe space to play outdoors. Jefferies work with Nipissing District Soccer as the Manager of Summer Programs has also seen a rapid rise in growth at all ages, including in kids signing up to play soccer for the first time.
Jefferies will receive her award at the 43rd Annual Induction and Awards Dinner to be held at the Davedi Club on Saturday, April 27th, 2024.
