We are pleased to announce the hiring of head coach Jamie Corbett for the 2020/21 season.
Jamie began his coaching career in 1998 at the community club level in the St. James & Assiniboine Park hockey associations. He then moved on to seasons with the APHA AA Rangers and various AAA teams in the Hockey Winnipeg system. One season was spent as an assistant coach with the Swan Valley Stampeders (MJHL) and another with the Interlake Lightning AAA midget. Most recently, Jamie was the General Manager with the OCN Blizzard & assistant coach of the Winkler Flyers of the MJHL.
Joining Jamie as an assistant coach, will be Fred Barnes. Fred was the head coach for the U17 Winnipeg Wild during the 2019-20 season. From 2017-2019 he was the head coach of the 2 time city champions, U17 Winnipeg Monarchs. In 2016-17 Fred was the assistant coach with the city Midget Winnipeg Hawks AAA Hockey Club.
Assistant Coach Doug Drobot and video coach Marc Boulanger remain with the team & round out the bench staff.
We regret to announce the departure of Neil Dawson as head coach. Neil led the Twins to a record of 45-35-10 over two seasons and consecutive playoff appearances. Neil also spent two seasons as an assistant coach prior to moving to head coach in 2018/19. If Neil's time permits, we hope to see him back with the Twins in another capacity.
Thank you for the dedication to the Twins program and best of luck in the future.
