Hockey Alberta’s Coach of the Month for November 2015 is Darcy Warawa of Lacombe.
Darcy is an Assistant Coach for both the Lacombe Initiation Red Rockets, and the Lacombe Tim Horton’s Bears. His coaching background goes back nearly 20 years. He’s served as a baseball coach at the community, Team Alberta, Junior National Team and International level. This is his first season coaching Minor Hockey, as both his sons decided to give the sport a try this year.
"I believe that coaching at the youth level is about teaching sport and life skills through fun games and activities," said Darcy. "Creating smiles, laughter and providing sincere encouragement are definitely part of building a positive sport environment for them."
"He (Darcy) focuses on making the game enjoyable for our players," said the Head Coach of the Lacombe Red Rockets, who nominated Darcy for Coach of the Month. "On the ice he is constantly giving the kids encouragement and tips to keep playing and enjoy the game."
