Last summer, Isaac coached a Winnipeg-based U16 boys team that represented their region at the 2012 Manitoba Games in Swan River.  Isaac teaches at Winnipeg’s Linden Christian High School and has been coaching the JV boys Wings since 2010. Isaac is a passionate basketball coach who is thrilled to have the opportunity to move up the coaching ranks from the high school to the Manitoba College level.

“Coach Isaac comes to our program with very positive reviews from his references, his high school and from Basketball Manitoba,” says Director of Athletics, Russell Willms, “He is truly a positive person and has great energy for the game and I am confident that he will bring that positivity to a program that has a history of success.”
