This season marks the sixth year of the OMHA Coach of the Month presented by The Coaches Site. We asked for nominations of deserving coaches and after much deliberation, Matt Hall of the Orangeville U11 HL Team 5 was selected as the Coach of the Month for January.
Here's his story as told by his nomination:
Matt has been coaching within Orangeville Minor Hockey for three years now and his drive and support for the house league group is second to none. Whether there's an early practice that doesn't have support or a grading day where last minute needs aren't met, Matt has consistently risen to the occasion.
His ability to encourage the youth of Orangeville to consistently be their best and help has been noted in many of his regular interactions both on ice and off. Matt supports a clear and inclusive message to his teams each year and continues to not just find way to better the overall performance of the kids during game play but continues this even off ice too.
