Coach Sauer will be remembered by all who knew him as a great coach, friend and ambassador for the sport of hockey. He was one of the most genuine people around who had an absolute love for hockey and worked tirelessly to bring the game to everyone. He was a self-effacing leader that set an example for all of us to follow - work hard, be kind, smile and be a positive role model.
The West Madison Polar Caps are honoring his memory through the annual Jeff Sauer Coaching Award. Players, parents and other coaches should nominate a current Polar Caps coach that embodies the characteristics of Coach Sauer. Please submit a written paragraph below detailing why your nominee should be considered for the award. Please include your name on the submission form.
