This season marks the third year of the OMHA Coach of the Month presented by The Coaches Site. We asked for nominations of deserving coaches and after much deliberation, Rob Guthrie of the Windsor Minor Atom AE team was selected as the Coach of the Month for February.

 

Here's his story as told by his nomination:

 

Rob most definitely deserves to be recognized for the enthusiasm, positive environment, dedication, determination, he puts forth and brings to his team on a daily basis. Not to mention the relationships he has established off the rink with each player. Before every game he makes sure each player is recognized for something great he did the game before, whether it was a good play, a goal, being a good team mate etc. He sets the mood for this team on such a positive note and this team is flourishing because of him.

 

He has such a passion for the sport and makes sure every team member knows how important their role on the team is... he also allows constructive criticism when needed but also sits with the player and goes over the play and what could be done differently moving forward... he makes sure they know this is how they learn... by making mistakes and it's not always a bad thing and to take these lessons in daily life even off the ice... his motto is 'it's not a mistake if we learn from it.'

 

I couldn't ask for a better role model for my son. On and off the ice these kids look up to him, and he wholeheartedly enjoys coaching and watching each player develop... he takes such pride in it!

 

 

Coach Rob grew up playing Windsor Minor Hockey all the way through to Midget in both recreational and representative. He was an assistant coach with a family friend for a few seasons after playing. When he had kids and they started to play he was involved from the beginning and has been an assistant and a head coach with his older son. He loves to see the kids grow and develop and build life long friendships.
