The Saanich Braves Jr Hockey Club have announced that Brent Polischuk has accepted the position of Head Coach and General Manager for the 2019-20 season.   

According to a Braves press release from owners Edward Geric and Norm Kelly on July 18, “Brent has extensive experience in coaching, player development, player evaluation and scouting.”  Coach Polischuk is a certified High Performance 1 coach and has coached at all levels of competitive hockey, serving in many roles in the BC Hockey and Hockey Canada Program of Excellence.  These include Team Pacific Director of Operations, Vancouver Island District Evaluator, BC Hockey coach mentor and coach evaluator and most recently worked as Team USA host in the 2019 World Junior Hockey Championship.

According to their statement, Polischuk’s work with the Braves will begin immediately; contacting returning players, affiliate players and prospects and taking his first steps in forming a roster for the upcoming season.
