MCLEAN AND CREAM ARE LATEST RECIPIENTS OF BERNIE LAWLOR MEMORIAL AWARD
Jan. 13, 2020
Hockey Nova Scotia’s Minor Council is proud to announce the winners of the Bernie Lawlor Memorial Coach of the Month Award for the months of November and December.
Glace Bay Minor Hockey Association coach Chris McLean is the November recipient of this coaching honour while Truro and Area Minor Hockey Association coach Greg Cream is the December winner.
McLean is a coach in Glace Bay's Atom C program.
McLean is a dedicated coach who makes sure that every player on his team feel valued. Since the season began, he has helped educate his players in all areas of the game and, as a result, their confidence on the ice has soared.
A positive influence on his young players, McLean puts an emphasis on team spirit and camaraderie. Win or lose, his players always come off the ice with smiles on their faces.
The second winner of October’s Bernie Lawlor Coach of the Month Award is Greg Cream.
Cream is the head coach of the Truro Peewee AA Bearcats.
Cream's players say that one of the best things about his coaching style is his laid-back approach. He never takes the game too seriously.
Cream puts a special emphasis on fun when he's putting together his practice plans. A supportive coach, his players know that they can always approach him with any problem that they have.
Through their contributions to their associations both on and off the ice, Chris and Greg are deserving recipients of this award.
The award is named in memory of Bernie Lawlor, a long-time Hockey Nova Scotia Minor Council regional director for the Halifax zone. It is handed out each month to exceptional teachers of the game who have helped to make our sport better.
Hockey Nova Scotia and the Hockey Nova Scotia Minor Council would like to congratulate Chris McLean and Greg Cream on their awards and thank them for their volunteer efforts.
