BFL Female Coach of the Year

BFL Female Coach of the Year


There is arguably no more important role in hockey than that of the coach, who is tasked with guiding young players not only on the ice, but off it as well. They are leaders in hockey, and leaders in life.

Hockey Canada and BFL Canada are recognizing the country’s best women’s hockey coaches with the BFL Female Coach of the Year awards. This year, 17 deserving women have been honoured for their efforts.

Congratulations to Samantha Holmes-Domagala (Community) and Teresa Hutchinson (High Performance), the national winners of the BFL Female Coach of the Year.

By stressing both fun and fundamentals, Samantha Holmes-Domagala is helping young girls fall in love with hockey, earning her BFL Female Coach of the Year honours.
A world champion as a player, Teresa Hutchinson has focused her passion on coaching, working with the next generation.

And congratulations to the provincial and territorial winners:
