Bob Tinordi
2014 - Award of Merit - Calgary Alberta

If anyone were to be crowned with the title of ‘Mr. Broomball’ in Lethbridge, a fitting choice would be Bob Tinordi.

Tinordi has been involved with the sport locally for going on 40 years. He played the game from 1972 to 1992 before turning to coaching when the LA Panthers were formed in 1993. Since then, he has amassed an impressive record with the men’s broomball team, winning seven provincial titles along with a trio of provincial medals.

Under Tinordi’s guidance, the Panthers have competed in eight Canadian Broomball Federation national championships, including winning the ‘B’ division gold medal when Lethbridge hosted the nationals in 1994. Tinordi served as co-chairman for the tournament. The team has also won two ‘B’ division silver medals, two ‘B’ division bronze medals and an ‘A’ division bronze medal.

Tinordi has also led the Panthers to prominence at the international level, coaching the squad in nine International Broomball Federation World Championships. On seven of those occasions, the team returned home with medals. The Panthers earned bronze at the 1996 worlds in Victoria and won silver at Bolzano, Italy in 1998 both on the ‘A’ SIDE. Then came the Challenge Cup ‘B’ side gold medal at Victoria in 2000 and at Cornerbrook, Nfld. in 2004.
Most recently, the Panthers have competed in the Master Division. They won a silver at the 2008 worlds in Vancouver and gold at Innsbruck, Austria in 2010.

Tinordi also has a long resume of service in the administrative capacity, serving as president of the Lethbridge Broomball Association from 1987-2007 and as the city’s Alberta Broomball Association representative during the same period. Through the years, he was also active in helping raise money for broomball by organizing casinos and bingos.
