What you think about “New CIHL team advertises positions”

  1. Lots of vacancies here, Batchewana should take a younger approach in the selection process in my opinion, hopefully they will pay for the positions so they can attract some coaches, they don’t need to pay a lot but a pay a good amount in comparison to the NOJHL.
    Preston Mizzi? Sean Gagnon? or a Vet like Mike Hall? along with other possible young blood like Mckaig? these guys can build a pretty impressive staff.

  2. Derek: why should the Attack take the “young approach”? R U suggesting young coaches are better than old coaches?
    Curious why you mention McCaig in the same sentence with Mike Hall?

  3. BirdsFan,

    I believe the Attack should take a younger approach based on being able to have growth with the organization, obviously based on the teams performance will determine coaching length most of the time, but allowing the coaching staff a good amount of time to grow with the organization, no matter the age, as long as the coach and staff have time to grow with the organization. I am not suggesting that younger coaches are better then older coaches by any means, nor are older coaches better then younger coaches at all, I meant it solely on development and growth with the organization. The game is different then before and having a youth outlook isnt a bad thing, nor having the older experience isnt a bad thing so either way, but as said, as long as there is commitment and growth.

    Mccaig wasnt in the same sentence with Mike Hall. All those coaches were mentioned in the same sentence together, no one together by any means, obviously Mizzi, Gagnon and Hall as head coaches IMO.
    BirdsFan, what other candidates do you see that fits? I imagine I forgot a good list of names.
