This season marks the fourth year of the OMHA Coach of the Month presented by The Coaches Site. We asked for nominations of deserving coaches and after much deliberation, Steve Hurst of the Glancaster Bombers U9 Red team was selected as the Coach of the Month for December.
Here's his story as told by his nomination:
Steve works really hard to teach his players the love of the game. Through drills and games, Steve teaches the players that teamwork is most important and that you play for the name on the front of your jersey not the name on the back. The players are excited for each practice and have learned how to respect and include each other both on and off the ice. Steve tailors his work with each player based on their needs, and gives individual tips to each player to help move them forward. He loves his role so much, that he joined the executive panel for the league to ensure everyone at every level enjoys their experience as a Glancaster Bomber.
