The most important goals are off the ice

The Esso Medals and Certificates of Achievement program celebrates the hockey journeys of young players you're proud to have on your team - who make everyone around them better. To date, nearly two million medals of achievement and almost 10 million certificates of participation have been awarded to young boys and girls on behalf of Esso.

Medals of Achievement registration is now closed.

In cooperation with the on-going COVID-19 response, registration for the Medals of Achievement program 2019-20 season has closed early.

Any Medals of Achievement orders that have been submitted until March 22nd, 2020 and not yet received, will do our best to have them fulfilled as expected.

As teams and associations across Canada are distributing program elements (Medals, Certificates, Fuel Saving Cards) as a result of year-end ceremonies being cancelled, we ask that care is taken to ensure distribution is done in a safe and thoughtful manner.

Thank you to all the teams and associations for being a part of the Medals of Achievement program this year, and we hope that during this time, Canada's hockey community stays safe, healthy and supportive of one another.

If you have any questions or inquiries about your order, please email

Keeping score off the board, since 1981.

For the past 38 years, Imperial Oil has proudly sponsored the Esso Medals and Certificates of Achievement program in the spirit of continuing hockey journeys. This program helps coaches of young hockey players across Canada recognize dedication, effort and fair play. We believe the most important goals in hockey never show up on the scoreboard.

This free program awards in a variety of ways, starting with a set of three Esso Medals of Achievement:

  • Most Dedicated

  • Most Improved

  • Most Sportsmanlike

Also available are:

  • A set of 18 Certificates of Participation autographed by the 2018 Canadian World Junior Team Captains and Canadian Women’s National Team Captains
  • Plus 20 Fuel Discount Cards, which are available to every hockey team registered with Hockey Canada, while quantities last.

Our mission involves helping families to and from the rink. That's why we encourage coaches and league organizers to hand out Fuel Discount Cards as soon as orders are shipped, so that families can enjoy them all season long.
