Atta Boy, Coach!

There has been all sorts of accolades heaped upon Manitoba Bisons women's hockey head coach Jon Rempel this season. He was named Canada West Coach of the Year. He was named the U SPORTS Coach of the Year. He guided his squad to the Canada West Championship and the U SPORTS National Championship. He's had himself a pretty good four months into 2018 thus far, but I'll be honest in saying that I don't mind someone bestowing another honour on him. He puts his players and team before himself at every point, so it might be appropriate for Jon to finally start enjoying the fruits of his labour this season with all these awards! There was another one added today, and I wasn't even aware of this award, so congratulations to Jon on earning this accolade!

Apparently, Global News in Winnipeg hands out a Coach of the Month honour every month to a deserving coach. I know that a couple of stations do Athletes of the Month, but learning that Global News has a coach's nod was news to me! In any case, here's Jon after being named the April 2018 Coach of the Month!

Atta boy, Coach! You deserve the accolades. You coached this team superbly this season, and the awards and recognition that come with them were earned. Congratulations on another accolade!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
