Meet Your Coaching Staff
Submitted By Todd Steel on Sunday, November 04, 2018
Woo-Whee - What an eclectic group of people we have behind that bench!

Here is a mini bio of your wonderful coaching staff:

Jeff Bannon (Two N's, or one N. I can never remember) - Head Coach
Jeff has had the pleasure of coaching hockey for many years. He is the proto-typical Canadian coaching Dad. For many years, he would put a rink in his own backyard, with one year, he actually brought in a load of dirt or stone dust, or ground up Flyers hockey sticks into his backyard in order to level it before building his ice pad. His wife, Kim, was thrilled. "Why didn't he put it in the front yard?!", I once heard her exclaim.
Jeff is extremely enthusiastic, and optimistic, hence his frequent pulling of the goalie well before the final buzzer.
Jeff's biggest drawback is the fact that he's a Philadelphia Flyers fan. It is rumored that Jeff is actually Gritty, their new mascot.

Shane Jacobs - Assistant Coach
How can you not love Shane Jacobs? My favourite fellow Leaf fan loves screaming at everyone from his perch by the bench. He does not discriminate. Shane is also a high level hockey ref, and arguably more qualified than most of the refs we are assigned. I miss hearing Shane's running commentary from the stands. Shane also has many years coaching experience.

Jeannie Rae - Head Trainer
Yes, you heard me right. Jeannie is the head trainer. With her many more years of training experience, Jeannie has seen it and done it all. Jeannie is also a very generous person. She would give you the shirt off her back. She likely bought that shirt with a coupon. 

KellEy, Loser Habs Fan, Jacobs - Minor, Assistant, Bottom Feeder Trainer
This is Kelly's second year behind the bench. She has actually done and excellent job of opening and closing the bench doors! Please make sure that you acknowledge, or wave to Kelly should she happen to drive by you in her lovely blue Audi SUV. She will be quite irate if you don't.

Karen Cameron - Team Manager
Please pay Karen when she asks you to. She has a really bad temper, and a couple of thugs that will come after you should you decide to not pay on time. Believe me, I know.

In all seriousness, thanks to these fine folks for stepping up to volunteer their time this year. These are often thankless jobs. I'm glad they are doing it, and not me.
