Fleming Family Hockey Coach Scholarship
The Manitoba Foundation for Sports scholarship program administered by Sport Manitoba announced a new scholarship this year. Jennifer Fleming created the Fleming Family Hockey Coach Scholarship, in memory of her father Jake Fleming and her brother Wayne Fleming, to recognize an upcoming Manitoba hockey coach who shows similar coaching and leadership traits that were characteristic of both Jake and Wayne.
“Teaching, coaching, and sharing the game of hockey was not only a passion for my Dad Jake and brother Wayne, it was ultimately their life’s work, pleasure and reward,” said Jennifer Fleming. “This scholarship is a way to carry forward their passion to the next generation of coaches.”
The Fleming Family Hockey Coach scholarship will be presented annually to a student who has demonstrated a commitment to coaching hockey in Manitoba. The goal is to encourage students to continue coaching hockey while attending a post-secondary institution and beyond. The $1,200 scholarship will be applied to the recipient’s tuition.
Applications for the Fleming Family Hockey Coach scholarship open today. Application deadline is Friday September 15, 2017.
