Our Hall of Famers represent almost every field of sport imaginable from hockey, baseball and athletics to synchronized swimming! We have local, provincial, national and international champions, world record holders, Olympians and Paralympians, NHL greats and many New Brunswickers who were the first in their respective fields!
