This will be my 5th year coaching with the Giants, and my 3rd year as head coach of Atom Blue.I have always believed in the benefits of team sports for providing children the skills and confidence required to succeed both on and off the field, and was lucky enough to have had some great coaches during my younger years that helped mold me into the person I have become. Coaching allows me to teach the players the importance of hard work, respect and teamwork. I am a 3rd generation Patriots fan. I served in the military for 22 years, retiring this spring. My wife Richelle and I moved to Chilliwack 8 years ago with our 2 kids, Kailyn and Landon. With our son playing, our daughter a cheerleader, my wife the cheer manager and me coaching we are definitely a Giants family.

JUNIOR BANTAM HEAD COACH
MANAGER: SHERRY CONTEH
I have been involved with the Giants football league for 4 seasons now coaching some great teams and kids! When my son started at the Peewee level I quickly got involved by assisting the coaching staff of that team. I had played High school Football from grade 8-12 and loved it, and have been coaching for the Giants ever since. I was an assistant coach for 2 years of Fall tackle; the Offensive Coordinator for Fall Tackle; as a Head Coach for Spring Flag and this current season I am the Special Teams Coach for the inaugural Spring Elite Bantam team.
I enjoy being able to watch the kids learn and progress, not only as athletes but as young men and women. I believe the game is not all about winning but learning how to lose and play the game with respect and sportsmanship; and to develop skills that will help these players in their future.
