The Battlefords North Stars have announced Garry Childerhose has been hired as the new assistant coach for the club.
Childerhose has previously been an assistant with head coach Mike Reagan in Flin Flon, Man. What’s more, Childerhose is from the Battlefords and his move to the North Stars is a homecoming of sorts.
Head coach Brayden Klimosko welcomed Childerhose to the club in a post on Facebook.
“We are pumped to add a coach like Garry to our organization. He is a local guy that has had lots of success in the SJHL with being an assistant in Flin Flon. He has a wealth of experience for moving players on to the next level including 17 players getting Div. 1 NCAA scholarships. I am excited to learn from Garry and it should be a great partnership.”
On Twitter Childerhose stated: “Very excited for the opportunity! Can’t wait to get started!”
Childerhose takes over the position left vacant by the departure of Rob Holoien, who left for a head coaching position with Carrot River Outback Thunder.
