2018 RECIPIENT

Kent Beagle (Rimbey)

Kent Beagle has worn multiple hats each year – coaching a team, running clinics, and assisting other coaches with practice plans and drills. He has also served on the Rimbey Minor Hockey Board for more than 8 years, as coach liaison, or in player development or manager assistance.

In 2018-19, Kent coached the Rimbey Atom A Tier 3 Red Team. In his nomination, it was noted that it was “an absolute treat to watch the kids and watch how awesome of a coach Kent is, helping kids develop and showing them on the board if they made a mistake or even a positive he would show the kids to help them see it. His countless volunteer work has made our association an awesome one to be a part of and help wherever it is needed."
