Members of the 1962-63 Innisfail Pontiacs gathered Saturday at the Innisfail Golf Course to provide an update on the Larry Reid Memorial Coaching Development Fund.
The fund, set up by the Pontiacs Alumni is closing in on the original goal of $70,000 and is helping with the growth of coaches in the Innisfail Minor Hockey Association (IMHA) organization.
It was launched two years ago, to honour former Pontiacs coach Larry Reid, who passed away in 2016. Reid was a long-serving and well-respected coach and volunteer with the IMHA and Hockey Alberta.
In 2007, he was recognized at Hockey Alberta’s Centennial Celebration as one of the top 100 contributors over the past 100 years as a leader in coach education and athlete development.
