Mavs Coaches Day for some..weekend was a HUGE hit.

2012 / 12 / 04

Headliners such as Dustin Reid (Ryerson University), Chris Lawson (Univeristy of Waterloo), Vince Pichette (Team Canada) and Pascal Clement (Universite de Laval) and Gino Brousseau (Universite de Laval) certainly filled the room with an air and presence that coaches could easily appreciate and absorb the wisdom with gusto.

Guests Kyle Paquette (Mental Prep)and Mel and Kelly (Soft Tissue injuries) also gave us a lot to think about in classroom sessions. While Maverick HP coaches Frank St Denis and Colin Walker shared their experiences on setting training.

The highlight of the day for some was when Gino Brousseau (Barcelona '92) was persuaded to demonstrate the art of the "japanese roll". Only to have the only person in the gym with equal or greater credentials critique his style. Paul Gratton (Los Angeles '84) assures us the the Young Mavs will soon be up to Gino's form in his classes.

Saturday was certainly lively, but for many coaches the weekend did not begin or end with Saturday. Maverick Coaches- John Spack, Judy Mouseeau, Chris "Chico" Tanguay, Angel Lacasse, Nick Krawchuk and Ailleen Lee all took part in either their level 2 or 3 certification as well on Friday night in Gatineau and again Sunday all day at Samuel Genest. Congratulations to each of you for taking the time to improve yourself for your players.

Many thanks to Tammy, John and Greg for helping take care of the details in this event. Appreciation to the OVA for organising the coaches clinics as well. A big Thank You also to Michel at Samuel Genest for all his work in making it run smooth for us.

Finally, to all the coaches who spent perhaps the only weekend that they have off until May to be in the gym to improve themselves as coaches in order to give back to the athletes in our Club. Thank you!
