Coach nominated for annual award

  • Print

Tim Morison, originally from Fannystelle, is in the running for a provincial award for his work as a goaltending coach.


Morison is one of three finalists in Coaching Manitoba’s Active Start Fundamentals category. The awards will be presented on April 7.


"The awards are real coaching recognition," said Sheldon Reynolds of Coaching Manitoba.


Morison was nominated for his work with goalies on teams playing in the Pembina Valley area, such as the Bantam AAA Hawks and the Carman Cougars. Some of the players he’s coached over the past few years were drafted to the Western Hockey League.


"Being nominated is great," said Morison. "It feels like an accomplishment."


The 23-year-old started coaching when he was in Grade 12 and looking for volunteer opportunities as part of a leadership class. He started working with a local peewee team and gravitated to coaching the goalies.


Morison said he was inspired to work with children by his former gym teacher, Steve Montgomery, at Starbuck Elementary School.


"He coached me growing up and I saw him as the biggest role model," he said.


Morison also gained valuable training working with Rick St. Croix, who’s been a goaltending coach for the Manitoba Moose, St. John’s IceCaps, and now the Toronto Maple Leafs.


Now working toward earning an education degree from the University of Winnipeg, Morison said he wants to teach phys-ed.


He’ll be holding a week-long goaltending clinic in Morden in August.
