Coach shortage could doom rep midgets

North Island Eagles hockey program seeks head coach for 2011-12 season.

The North Island Eagles rep hockey program is less than a month away from kicking off its 2011-12 season with tryouts in Port McNeill, but the midget team is at risk of being left stranded due to a coaching shortage.

Tryouts for atom development, peewee, bantam and midget squads are scheduled to begin Tuesday, Sept. 6 at Chilton Regional Arena.

While registration has been going well, according to Eagles registrar Tanya Kellar, the program is in desperate need of a head coach for the midget team or the Eagles may not be able to put a midget program on the ice for the coming season.

"We've got enough players," Kellar said. "We just need a coach."

Those interested in applying, or for more information on the coaching vacancy, call Vadim Stavrakov at 250-956-4836 or email

For general registration info, call Kellar at the same number, or email
