With the avowed purpose of getting their hockey program ” further still “, the people of the secondary school of the Divine Word come to acquire a full-time coordinator.
Jean-Vincent Piette, who led the Titans M-15 major honours last season and that has long been associated with the Inouk, will become the strong man of the organization starting in the spring. It seems that the choice has been easy to do.
“We’re going to have to say, there was a lack of stability at the head of the Titans, explained the director of the Divine Word, John Striganuk. This was not a lack of skill, but the parents of our players have always asked, for example, to whom they should contact when there was a problem or if they had a question to ask. There will be a meeting, it will be clearly identified, and everybody is going to know that is that. “
Over the years, there has been a game of musical chairs at the level of the sharing of responsibilities among the Titans. Currently, it is Patrick Lachapelle, the head of sport at the Divine Word, who oversees the hockey program of the institution.
“It was a good program, takes Jean Striganuk. As we know, it is the fact said regularly and the results on the ice and at the academic level are there. And we just want to bring it further, this program. We can always do better. “
Piette : a ” natural “
No, John Striganuk did not seek far to find the coordinator of the Titans.
“Jean-Vincent, knows the school, he is attached and he knows his hockey, he said. It is a natural for the position that one creates. It is to him that we wanted and the negotiations were not long. “
Piette, 36 years, produces neither more nor less a dream by accepting a job that will allow him to hockey full-time.
“This is the dream of everyone and me, I will have the chance to achieve it, he stressed. What I want is to build on our strengths and work on our areas for improvement. Always keeping the idea that student success is our top priority. “
Piette has won the Cup Napa as the assistant to David Lapierre in Inouk in 2014. It also works as a recruiter Gee Gee’s of the University of Ottawa. It finally gives a helping hand to the Maroons, always on the level of recruitment.
“I have contacts all over the hockey, and I intend to use it. The Titans offer me a nice challenge and I intend to meet that challenge successfully. “
