Congratulations to January's Coach of Excellence Winners!
Submitted By Jaclyn Morden on Monday, February 12, 2018
WMHA is excited to recognize both Dave Gary - Minor Bantam AA & Dave Vickers - Novice Team 6 as January Coach of Excellence Award winners. 


Coach Dave Gray (Minor Bantam AA)


Our son has been lucky enough to have been mentored by coach Dave for the last couple of years. He has lead by example and has shown our boys to win and lose with grace. In this competitive sport these qualities are hard to find. Each boy on our team knows that each and every member has an important part to play. He has personally taught our son that a persons character is as important as scoring goals and blaming teammates for mistakes is never okay. He is all about fair play and each kid is played fairly, this is unheard in rep hockey yet he does and somehow we continue to be one of the most successful teams in Whitby. I canít think of anyone more deserving of this recognition.


Coach Dave Vickers (Novice Team 6)


"Dave is an excellent coach. He is great with children and with the parents. He has helped the kids progres this year and gone above and beyond to engage the kids and make them feel part of a team, including adranging for tournaments and gym time. He is absolutely fabulous."

"He has gone above and beyond, organizing tournaments, holiday parties, gym time for the kids to play together."

"He has created a welcoming atmosphere and is a patient and kind coach."

"Always very supportive of the kids reguardless of the outcome of the game. Spends countless hours organizing extra events for the kids. Makes all the kids feel like they are very important to the team."
