Art Pagett

Art Pagett was an athlete who dedicated himself to helping others after his playing days were over.

Art committed to helping youth from all walks of life, regardless of background or religion. He helped put the word “organized” into sport activity at a time when it was most needed.

He was a founding member of both the Peterborough Minor Hockey Association and the Southend Trojan Club for Boys in 1945. His ingenuity, hard work, and leadership, enabled many youth of the time to participate in hockey, soccer, softball and baseball, which he and George Masters organized and coached. Everyone got a chance to play.

Over ensuing decades, Art coached teams of all age groups and levels. Summer and winter, he transported players, shovelled rinks, lined ballparks and found equipment for those unable to afford it, and instilled personal and family values into his charges.

As a player, Art was an all-round athlete, playing on many championship teams involving hockey, ball, cricket and curling.

Art helped found Turner Park and was instrumental in the construction of the Civic Arena.

Art Pagett was a true builder of sport, and of people.
