PSMHA is pleased to announce that Cory Brace has been named Head Coach of the 2018-19 Midget AA team.
Cory started coaching minor hockey in 2006 as an assistant coach at the Initiation level for the Clavet Minor Hockey Association.

This included coaching un-tiered, (house), teams in the Initiation, Novice and Pee Wee age groups, and tier I teams in the Novice and Atom age groups. In addition to volunteering his time as a head coach Cory was also a member of the CMHA board for 6 years holding various positions such as Treasurer, Registrar, Atom Director, Director- Coach Mentorship, and finishing his tenure on the board as Vice President.
To help improve himself as a coach and supplement his coaching experience, in 2009 Cory began working with a player development program in Saskatoon called Canadian Ways. As part of the Canadian Ways program Cory was able to mentor under the program founders John and Greg Slobodzian. This program was focused on player development both as a player and a person. During his time with Canadian Ways Cory supported skill development camps, conditioning camps andskill focused academies. Cory also supported the Canadian Ways spring hockey program an assistant coach for 2 seasons with the 2001 team and then as head coach of the 2003 program for two seasons.
In 2013 Cory and his family moved from Saskatoon to White City where Cory quickly became involved in our minor hockey programs. Since coming to the Prairie Storm Minor Hockey Association for the 2013/2014 season Cory has head coached a number of teams including Atom, Pee Wee and Midget, assistant coached Novice, Atom and Pee Wee, andmanaged our Bantam AA program for the last two seasons. Cory has continued supporting spring hockey by being an assistant coach for the past 3 spring seasons with a team of 2006 born players from the Regina area.
Cory is very excited about the opportunity to work with our Midget AA program this year and can’t wait for the season to get started.
