Providence coaches recognized by Volleyball Manitoba
Providence coaches Kyle Guenther and Scott Masterson have been named Volleyball Manitoba Volunteers of the Year.
Presented with their awards at the 2017 Volleyball Manitoba Annual Awards & Hall of Fame Banquet on June 11 at Canad Inns Polo Park, the two were recognized for their work in co-chairing the volleyball tournament at the 2016 Manitoba Summer Games in Steinbach as well as 2016 17U/18U Girls and 2017 17U/18U Boys Provincial Championships.
Masterson, Director of Athletics at Providence and head coach of the Pilots men’s volleyball team, says investment in the development of youth sports in southeastern Manitoba is part of the institution’s vision.
“We have historically been doing this through our summer sports camps and our club volleyball program, and I see our work in helping organize and run these high-level competitions as another way in which we can accomplish this goal,” he explains.
Guenther, who oversees the Providence club program and coaches the Pilots women’s team, says he was honoured to receive a volunteer award, although, he points point, neither he nor Masterson were seeking recognition.
“I really enjoy hosting events as part of my job here at Providence, so it was an easy decision to be involved in hosting the Manitoba Summer Games last summer and the Volleyball Manitoba Provincial Championships the last two years,” he says.
Acknowledging that large events require a team effort, Masterson points to the contributions of Hanover School Division, Steinbach Regional Secondary School and Clearspring Middle School.
“We have had hundreds of athletes and their families come to Steinbach, and to these schools, over the past year,” he says. “They were greeted with great facilities and by the friendly community of Steinbach.”
