It was a big day for the Parkland Bantam AAA hockey team and the Parkland Bantam AAA women’s hockey team as they announced their new Head Coaches for the upcoming season.

Terance Lacquette will continue being the Head Coach for the Parkland AAA Bantam team as the announcement was made official today.

Lacquette has over 19 years of experience coaching hockey and is a High-Performance Level 1 coach.

“He was most qualified,” said Darcy Boychuk, Director of Development for PMHA. “We have 15 players coming back from last year when Terance was the coach. The parents like him and the kids love him. It was almost a match made in heaven for the organization.”

Lacquette was the Head Coach for Hockey Manitoba’s Director’s Cup program in 2014, Assistant Coach with the Parkland Rangers Midget AAA team from 2011-2014, and has been coaching the Parkland Rangers AAA Bantam team for the past two seasons.

“I would like to congratulate him because he did a good last year with this group, and the group was young,” said Boychuk. “Everyone is pretty pumped to have him return back this year.”

The Parkland Bantam AAA team will hold their camp at Credit Union Place on September 9 and 10.

Parkland Female AAA Bantam

The new Head Coach for the Parkland women’s AAA Bantam team this year will be Phil Fafard Jr.

Just like Lacquette, Fafard Jr. has plenty of coaching experience which includes Hockey Manitoba’s Peewee Female Prospects program from 2015-2017, and Head Coach of the DMHA Female Midget team from 2009-2015. He also coached the DMHA Female Bantam team from 2010-2012.

Fafard Jr. is currently enrolled in the two year, High-Performance Level 1 certification program. 

“I’m really looking forward to the challenge and the opportunity,” said Fafard Jr. “I’m proud and pleased to be selected, and I’m looking forward to pulling the program together.”

Just like the Bantam AAA Parkland men’s team, the women will also hold their camp on September 9-10.

When the Winnipeg Blue Bombers hook up with the Toronto Argonauts this afternoon, the Bombers will play without their best receiver, and defender, something that the club will have to get used to, because Maurice Legget and Darvin Adams are out for the rest of the season.
