WRING | Hurricanes name Gallaway inaugural head coach
September 5, 2017
Gallaway has been a staple in the Prince Edward Island ringette community since 1991. Since then he’s been coaching with the Charlottetown Ringette Association as well as the U-16 and U-19 provincial ringette team. He has held titles of Coaching Coordinator with the Charlottetown Association and Director of Coaching at the provincial level during those years as well.
“I think it’s great to see Holland College add ringette to their athletic program,” shared Gallaway. “It will certainly give young women the opportunity to continue their ringette growth and become role models for many young Islanders.”
The Hurricanes will compete with colleges and universities around the Maritimes this year including St. Mary’s, Acadia, Dalhousie and St. FX Universities.
The Holland College Hurricanes have been gauging the interest in forming a ringette club for some time and have received positive feedback from current and incoming students since the announcement that the team would move forward for 2017.
“Having had 36 years of experience in the education field and many years coaching sports, my players can expect good communications, flexibility and the encouragement needed to believe in themselves,” said Gallaway.
Although the Hurricanes have received positive feedback from many of the provinces best players they realize the work that is needed to compete with programs that have been established at bigger schools for many years.
“My main objective this season is to ice a team that is competitive and can create a solid foundation for the future success of the ringette program at Holland College,” shared Gallaway
