edited from a long newspaper posting

deaf coach hired to coach junior hockey in Canada

Goderich Junior Flyers, a Junior C team in the
Ontario Hockey Association, has hired
Jesse McIntyre as the new coach.

He is deaf and played for the national Deaf
Canadian hockey team that took part in the
Deaflympics.

Junior C? It more or less is equivalent to
NCAA-III in college sports. Top rung is
Junior A (equivalent to NCAA-I) and next is
Junior B (equivalent to NCAA-II).

Goderich? It is a town of some 7,600 people
and the residents take their hockey seriously
even if it is Junior C.

random deafsports thoughts

DeafDigest Sports hates it when football
coaches at deaf schools work so hard to
set up football schedules – only to have
hearing schools cancel their games with
deaf teams!

…………………………….

deaf football teams
Alabama – 4 game schedule
Mississippi – 4 game schedule
Texas – 8 game schedule (all hearing teams)

only one deaf vs deaf game
10/15 Alabama at Mississippi

……………………………..

deaf volleyball teams

Iowa
Mississippi (latest addition)
Texas

any others?

………………………………

deaf cross country teams
