Revelstoke’s Kevin Dorrius has been awarded Squash BC’s top honour.

Dorrius, the president of the Revelstoke Racquet Den squash club, was named the Jack Laresen Award winner for his contributions to developing squash in B.C.

Dorrius was honoured as a driving force behind development of the sport through the Southern Interior of the province.

“He is working with clubs in Kelowna, Penticton and Vernon to build junior programs and create regional competitions,” said a news release from Squash BC. “Kevin has also advocated for squash in the interior as the Zone Representative on the Board of Squash BC and is a member of the Squash BC Junior Committee.”

Dorrius organizes the Revelstoke Racquet Den’s youth programs, coaching and bringing kids to tournaments across the province. The club is in the top three when it comes to the number of members per court, and has one of the top five junior programs in the province based on participation.

Last year Dorrius received the Squash BC Junior Service Award for his work developing junior programs.
