POULIOT, CROFT AND CHIASSON SHARE JANUARY'S BERNIE LAWLOR COACH OF THE MONTH HONOUR
Feb. 19, 2020
Hockey Nova Scotia’s Minor Council is proud to announce the winners of January's Bernie Lawlor Memorial Coach of the Month Award.
Halifax Hawks Minor Hockey Association coach Andre Pouliot and West Hants Warriors Minor Hockey Association coaching duo Todd Chiasson and Ray Croft are the latest coaches to be recognized.
Pouliot is the head coach of the Halifax Atom B Hawks.
Pouliot is an energetic and positive coach who is known for being selfless with his time. He continues to find new ways to motivate his players so that they can develop their skills and reach their full potentials.
Each and every game, Pouliot's team has grown and shown steady improvement while never losing sight of their main goal: to have fun.
The second coaching duo to receive January's Bernie Lawlor Coach of the Month Award are Todd Chiasson and Ray Croft
The pair are currently coaches with the West Hants Minor Hockey Association's Novice program.
Chiasson and Croft are both known for being community-oriented and giving of their time.
The coaching duo is always exploring new ways to give development opporunities to their players. However, those who know them say that their commitment to their players extends beyond development... their players are made to feel like they're supported and part of a community.
Through their contributions to their associations both on and off the ice, Andre, Todd, and Ray 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 this trio on their awards and thank them for their volunteer efforts.
