New coaches for the Flyers

by Tammy MacDonald

On Monday, July 9, Frontenac Flyers general manager, Mike MacDonald, announced the hiring of their new coaches for the upcoming season. Former coach Tyler Sheridan resigned at the end of the season in order to pursue job interests in Toronto. “I owe the Flyers a lot for taking a leap of faith with me and I wish I could have returned next year to finish what I started,” said Sheridan. General manager Mike Macdonald added “I would personally like to thank Tyler for his strong leadership and work ethic in his short time with us. I wish Tyler the best of luck in Toronto.”


Ryan Seymour was appointed the new head coach and his brother, Jeff Seymour, has been appointed assistant coach. “Ryan Seymour is an outstanding person, who, along with his brother Jeff, has an unmatched passion for hockey that will no doubt help our young players excel to the next level,” stated MacDonald. “Our club needs to take the next step and I am very comfortable with their approach, ideas, and energy.”

Ryan Seymour was head coach of the Kingston Township Bantam All-Star team last season and he has also served as head coach for the Dallas Titans and the Greater Kingston Predators Bantam, Midget,[T&DH1] and Peewee teams.

Jeff Seymour was an assistant coach with the Predators Minor Midget team that made it to the OHL Cup last spring. He has also served as Ryan’s assistant coach with several different teams.

Ryan and Jeff’s combined experience will be an asset to the Flyers as they look forward to a successful 2007/2008 season.

The new coaches and players are looking forward to meeting the community at the Verona Festival this summer. Stop by and say hello and try their hockey obstacle course!

[T&DH1]Not sure about commas here. Is Preditors the over-all name? Perhaps someone else will know the divisions
