The Winkler Flyers are pleased to announce the hiring of Jamie Corbett as their new Assistant Coach. The Winnipeg native rounds out the Flyers new coaching staff which is busy preparing for the start of 2019-2020 MJHL season.
“We are very excited to be able to add Jamie to our group,” said Flyers General Manager Jeff Jeanson.
“He has good experience in our league as well as at the midget and bantam levels. And the fact that his coaching philosophy falls in line with Kelvin Cech (Head Coach) and what we are trying to do here, we think it is a perfect fit,” added Jeanson.
Corbett started last season with the Interlake Lightning (Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League) before finishing the year as the Interim Head Coach of the OCN Blizzard. The season prior to that, he was an Assistant Coach with the Swan Valley Stampeders. Corbett also has extensive coaching experience with the Winnipeg AAA Midget and Bantam programs over the past eight years.
“I am thrilled to be joining a great program and a great group here in Winkler,” said Corbett.
“Everyone seems to be on the same page and has the same vision and passion for being successful and I can’t wait to be a part of things here with the Flyers.”
The Winkler Flyers Main Camp and Rookie Prep Camp will kick off on Wednesday, August 28th which will conclude with the Intrasquad Game on Saturday, August 31st. A full schedule of Main Camp will be released shortly.
The Flyers would like to officially welcome Jamie and his family to the Flyers organization.
