Our 2018 Peewee AAA team will once again be coached by CJ Jayasekera. In addition to coaching the AAA team, CJ will oversee the entire development program for both of the SJP peewee rep teams: AA and AAA. CJ and his staff will work closely with our AA coaching staff (TBD) and the team to ensure we continue following SJP’s philosophy of developing all of our players that make the commitment required to play at the Baseball Alberta AA and AAA levels.
As time permits, CJ will also continue to advise and work with all of our teams: both rep and house. However, as the Peewee Rep program will take most of his time, Jamie Wilson will be taking over as our Spring/Summer Technical Director. Jamie assumed this same role for the 2017 season. As he did in 2017, Jamie will work with players and coaches across all SJP levels: Rookie, House and Rep.
Brian Mulder will coach our Bantam AAA team. Brian has worked with our core group of players in this age group over the last 5 years, including coaching Bantam and Peewee AA, and is committed to continue to work with the AAA team for the 2018 season.
SJP has also committed to bringing in and developing a group of assistant coaches for our rep program. Some of these coaches have been helping with our SJP Camps over the winter and have played for our organization in the past. As details are finalized, we will add assistants to our teams and update our members.
Our Bantam AA coach is still to be determined based on the makeup of the team.
Matty McGee is returning as coach of our Midget AAA team. Matty has been with SJP for a number of years and was instrumental in getting our AAA Midget program off the ground last year. Matty will be joined by Gavin Turinek for the 2018 season.
As with Bantam, the Midget AA coaching staff is still to be determined based on the makeup of the team.
