Midgets get their coaches

In the face of a possible shortage, three midget coaches have stepped up.

Three Greater Trail Minor Hockey Association (GTMHA) Midget House teams will be able to face off on Saturday with the announcement that the teams have recruited the required number of coaches.

GTMHA announced Wednesday afternoon that three people have stepped up to coach at the Midget House Level after an email was sent earlier that day warning parents that if coaches weren’t found up to two teams would fold and players unable to play.

Midget director Brian Youngson was confident that coaches would surface by the end of the day and his prediction proved accurate.

Teams were picked on Thursday and rosters sent out today. Games will go on Saturday, but teams still require a safety person with HCSP certification and a manager.

All coaches and bench staff (Safety person and Manager) will need updated Respect in Sport and a Criminal Record Check. All courses are fully refundable by GTMHA as long as they are rostered to a team.
