My name is Karla Clarke and I am pleased to announce I will be the Nepean Wildcats Competitive Bantam C Head Coach for the 2018-2019 season. This is my 6th season with the NGHA, 4 of them as a head coach. I am looking forward to another great season with the Wildcats!
My biggest passion is for the development of young players. I believe that while it's important to win games and become better hockey players, we use hockey to teach teamwork, discipline ,responsibility, EFFORT, commitment, confidence, leadership and most importantly consistency.
In order to develop individual skill, players must be passionate about their own development, all while playing hard for their teammates. I give every player the same opportunity to grow, however we all have different strengths. The goal is to get players to use their strengths to make the team stronger and instill confidence in the player.
Try outs at this level will begin mid May 2018. Please expect to be with the team 3-4 times per week. It is expected to attend 5-6 tournaments this season. Team chemistry should be developed early so be prepared for off ice activities.

Oakville Harvest Classic - Sept. 13th
Pink the Rink Etobicoke - Oct. 12-14
35th Kanata Competitive- Nov (TBD)
