Cayleb was awarded one of the OMHA's Dairy Farmers of Ontario Bursaries at the OMHA AGM in June.
Cayleb is very well deserving of this award and a great representation of Saugeen Valley Minor Hockey!

Cayleb Peitz has always been a leader, whether in the classroom or on his hockey team, and manages to excel in both areas.
The graduate of John Diefenbaker Senior School will be enrolled in the Bachelor of Physical and Health Education at Nipissing University next year.
“My volunteering experience will help me as a teacher because it gives me practice on how to reach out to the kids and how to get them to hear what you’re saying and not just listen to it, but actually understand what you’re saying,” said Peitz.
“Cayleb is phenomenal with kids. I’ve seen him at the rink with CanSkate and with his own nieces and he just has a very nurturing personality,” said his former teacher, Tina Samounty. “He’s playful with them and you can tell that he truly loves being with them. I’m looking forward to one day maybe teaching beside him.”
Peitz is also an active member of his local lacrosse team as a player and volunteer and also gives his time to help out with the skating club. He also balances working a part-time job at the local hardware store. In the OMHA, he suited up with the West Grey Warriors.
