Childerhose Lands Klipper Job

Congratulations to Bomber Assistant  Gary Childerhose who is the new Head Coach and GM of the Kindersley Klippers.

 

Childerhose will take over for the most recent SJHL Coach Of The Year in Clayton Jardine who stepped aside to pursue another opportunity.

 

Gary brings a lot of experience to the table including three years as a player with the Melfort Mustangs where he picked up 92 points in 131 games.

 

He joined the Bombers as an Assistant Coach 5 years ago and made an immediate impact on the players, fans and sponsors in Flin Flon and was a very popular figure at the Whitney Forum.

 

Childerhose was also very good at breaking down video and was a tremendous attribute in helping the Bomber organization graduate players to the NCAA college level.

 

This will be Gary's first official head coaching job,  although he does bring some head coaching experience to the table after looking after the club on three different occasions while Mike Reagan was at the World JR. A Challenge.

 

There will be no shortage of experience behind the Kindersley bench,  as another former Bomber coach Larry Wintoniak will stay on as the Assistant Coach and Assistant GM.

 

On behalf of the entire Flin Flon Bomber organization,  I would like to thank Gary for all his hard work and positive attitude and wish him nothing but success in the rest of his hockey career.
