We are pleased to announce Jason McNeil as the U15BB coach for the 2024/25 Season.  Jason has been involved in hockey for many years, both as a player and coach.  He is looking forward to his second season behind the bench of the U15BB Devils and will be looking for players who are team focused, have a tactical understanding of the game, always bring maximum effort to each drill and are not afraid to push themselves outside of their comfort zone. In turn, he is excited to create a positive environment where these young adults can learn team first life lessons. Players will be encouraged to work together to be the best hockey players they can be, while demonstrating a respectful and inclusive environment for teammates, competitors, bench staff and officials.  Bench staff will be all Non-Parent and we look forward to another great season!
