  • Mary Ann Robinson - 2011
Mary Ann Robinson was born in Illinois and settled in Manitowoc, Wis., where she and her husband raised their family.  Like many parents, Robinson became involved with hockey because her children were playing.  She served on the Manitowoc County Youth Board as a board member and president.  She helped developed the volunteer program and was the editor of the monthly newsletter.  She also worked as a fund raiser for both programming and to fund a new indoor ice arena, and was actively involved in day-to-day operations of the facility. For her accomplishments with Manitowoc Youth Hockey, she received the Dedicated Service Award.  Robinson was elected to the WAHA Board in 1995 as a regional director, and became the Vice President and Director of Girls/Women’s hockey in 1999.  She developed a state-wide girls program and the development program and camp for girls, and did much of this work on her own, down to designing brochures and posters, and initiating contact with individual girls.
 
In 2001, Robinson became the USA Hockey/Central District Girls/Women Section Representative.  She is responsible for organizing annual Central District Camps, including assembling and evaluating bids, awarding contracts, preparing budgets, hiring staff and arranging for all the details that comprise these events.  She has organized tryouts for Central District girls to assist them as they attempt to advance to national camps.  Robinson was the local chair for the 2005 Adult Womens National Tournament in Green Bay.  She served as the Tournament Director for multiple Girls/Women National Tournaments, and as a Camp Director and Counselor for USA Hockey National Camps, and as Team Host for IIHF competition in the USA and Canada.  Robinson was the General Manager for Girls Team Wisconsin from 2002-2006 at the Chicago Showcase.
 
Robinson’s non-hockey activities include part-time reading teacher, to developmentally disabled 7th and 8th grade students.  She worked with the Service League of Manitowoc County, was president from 1994-1998, and received their highest award for volunteerism.
