BC Hockey announced that Mark Taylor (Surrey) of the Greater Vancouver Comets has been named the Female Midget AAA (FMAAA) Coach of the Year for 2017-2018.
Mark Taylor had a very successful season with the Greater Vancouver Comets, leading them to a stunning 29-2-1 record collecting 59 of a possible 64 points. The Comets scored 174 goals this year, nearly doubling the next best team, and their goals against was another league best of 45. This was Taylor’s third year with the Comets, and fourth year in the FMAAA. Taylor has been a member of Team BC, when he coached the female team to a fourth-place finish at the National U18 Women’s Championship in 2015.
The FMAAA program consists of five (5) zone-based teams that are spread across the province – the Fraser Valley Rush (Langley), Greater Vancouver Comets (Coquitlam), Northern Capitals (Prince George), Thompson-Okanagan Lakers (Vernon), and Vancouver Island Seals (Shawnigan Lake). The teams play a 30 game regular season, followed by the playoffs.
The FMAAA program was initiated in the 2007-2008 season in response to the membership’s desire to provide an opportunity for elite female hockey players to come together on zone teams to challenge other elite female Midget teams. The league has had nearly 100 players move on to post-secondary hockey opportunities.
