We are pleased to announce that John Bentham will be returning as the VRC/PMHA U15 Head Coach for the 2023/2024 season.

He has a long history at VRC as both player and coach. John coached all levels from Novice to Junior and has a wealth of knowledge in high performance programs.

After playing Bantam at VRC, John was selected to play for Team BC U17 before he moved onto Junior A in the BCHL. While there, he was awarded the top Defenceman in both Cowichan and Victoria. John also spent a season playing in the WHL before attending UVic.

John has a lenghty coaching resume with over 20 years of experience. Over the years he has coached a number of players onto Junior A, WHL, College and Pro hockey. Most recently he coached the BCEHL South Island Royals U17 and U18 teams. Prior to that he coached with the Westshore Wolves in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League (VIJHL).

We are thrilled to have him back as our Head Coach for 2023/2024.
