Junior Oil Barons U18 Scholarship


Junior Oil Barons Scholarship Policy

FMMHA and the Elite Jr. Oil Barons program believes that a local hockey program is an important community venture that develops many skills and attitudes that build essential character traits and habits that will enhance your future.

The 2020-21 season has been an exceptionally difficult year and while we are saddened that players did not get to shine like the bright stars that they are, we are hopeful that the 2 recipients of these $1000.00 scholarships will put it to good use towards your bright future.

Alexander Beaton 

2022-2023 Recipient


Alexander Beaton has just completed his final year of high school at Father Mercredi along with his final year of Minor Hockey. Alexander spent 13 years with the Fort McMurray Minor Hockey association – 4 of which he was part of the Junior Oil Barons. Within these years he has shown sportsmanship, a great attitude and was always dedicated to finding ways to improve. 

Outside of his personal hockey life, Alex showed academic excellence – scoring high marks in Social Studies in his senior year landing him on the honor roll. He also volunteered in his free time with the Wood Buffalo Inclusive Royals program – a program which helps kids regardless of their abilities have the chance at furthering their fitness by playing hockey. 

“With the biggest heart and positive attitude, the true appreciation of his teammates and respect of his coaching staff, Alexander was chosen by his peers to be their assistant captain in his second year with the team. He is a team player I respected on and off the ice and I was able to rely on him numerous times.” - Julie Imbeault , Team Manager 2019-2022

Alex will be attending The University of Calgary this upcoming year while completing his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science in hopes to become a Lawyer one day.
