PeeWee – Mike Maunders (1), Trevor Dubien (2)
Bantam – Jeff Hartley (1), Doug Taylor (2), Sean Somers (3)
Midget – Ben Albert
Girls PeeWee - Vacant
Girls Bantam – Nic Aitken
Girls Midget - Vacant
Girls Intermediate - Vacant
Junior C – Jeff Hartley
Intermediate – To be assigned from Jr C coaching staff should registration numbers warrant forming a team.

 

Note: Vacancies will be filled on an as needed basis going forward this season.
 
Tryouts and Assignment of a Team to a Coach
GLA competitive coaching candidates are ranked to ensure all players are given an equal opportunity to compete for a roster spot at tryouts.  Being the first ranked candidate does not guarantee the coach’s son/daughter a roster spot on the #1 team, nor does being the second ranked coach mean the coaches son/daughter will be assigned to the #2 team by default.  The first ranked candidate has the first choice of GLA competitive team to coach (presumably the team that their son/daughter is assigned to after tryouts).
