The Valley West Hawks of the BC Major Midget League (MML) are pleased to announce that Rob Evers has been named the team’s new head coach.
Evers has been the general manager with the Hawks but will move to the head coaching role following the departure of former head coach Jessie Leung, who took an assistant coach position with the Trail Smoke Eaters of the British Columbia Hockey League.
Evers will be joined on the bench by returning assistant coach Kyle Spencer along with Guido Lamberti-Charles, who will join the team as assistant coach.
"I am very excited to be back in a head coaching role. It was a lot of hard work and long hours the last few years building and creating an identity for our program alongside Jessie Leung” said Evers. “I want to ensure that we deliver on what we promised to each player and their families that decided to commit to our program this year.”
Evers has over 10 years of coaching experience at the Bantam and Midget levels, including seven (7) years as a head coach. He spent four (4) years as an associate coach with Concordia University and four (4) seasons as an associate coach in the Alberta Junior Hockey League.
The MML was established in 2004 to provide elite level 15, 16 and 17 year olds an opportunity to play within their own age group at a high level and be developed for the next level of hockey. These teams have an opportunity each year to compete for the TELUS Cup, Canada’s National Midget Championship.
