    The Winnipeg Minor Basketball Association has announced that Krishna Armogan has been named the 2016-2017 recipient of the WMBA Bruce Russell Coach of the Year Award. Krishna has been coaching in the WMBA for 13 years, most recently out of the Maples Community Centre.

    Quotes from nominations:

    Krishna has always believed that every child is equal, whether they start out good, or not so good, they are all equal. He truly looks for the potential in each kid, and treats them all fairly and with respect. He spend time with those who need the most help and encourages parents to help with the building of confidence and promoting fair play.

    The award recognizes a coach who demonstrates an outstanding commitment to Fair Play, shows exemplary commitment to the team, serves as a model for other coaches to emulate and demonstrates concern for players outside the game. Prior to the selection committee seeing the nominations, all names and club references are removed to eliminate any biases in making the decision. In all, 5 WMBA coaches were nominated for the award – all very deserving in their own right for the recognition.  READ MORE...
