St. Vital Junior Victorias announce Tyler Anderson as head coach.
The St. Vital Junior Victorias proudly announce the appointment of their new Head Coach, Tyler Anderson.
With deep roots in the area, Anderson brings a wealth of hockey experience and a strong commitment to the sport. Hailing from St. Vital, Anderson began his own hockey journey with SVMHA, where he cultivated his passion for the game. Progressing through youth hockey in Winnipeg, Anderson then moved on to play junior hockey with the Steinbach Pistons in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.
Eager to excel both on and off the ice, Anderson had the opportunity to play NCAA hockey for St. Cloud State University. During his four-year collegiate career, Anderson earned a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences, demonstrating a well-rounded dedication to academics and athletics.
The Junior Victorias organization was particularly drawn to Anderson’s track record as a coach. Over the past two years, he served as an assistant coach for the U15 Winnipeg Wild Red in the Winnipeg AAA hockey league, contributing to the development and success of young players.
Additionally, Anderson has showcased his expertise in ball hockey coaching, leading Team Manitoba at various age levels, including U15, U17, and U19. Notably, Anderson also played an essential role as an Assistant Coach for U16 Team Canada West at the World Junior Ball Hockey Championship in 2023.
Upon accepting the Head Coach position with the Junior Victorias, Anderson expressed his excitement about returning to the team he grew up watching and is determined to lead this group to a championship.
“I am honored and thrilled to be a part of the St. Vital Junior Victorias family. This is a tremendous opportunity to give back to the community that shaped me as a player and now as a coach. Together, with the players, staff, and passionate supporters, we will work tirelessly to bring a championship back to St. Vital.”
The Junior Victorias management is confident that Anderson’s leadership and expertise will continue to build on the success that Jeff Mitchell’s staff has left him. With a shared vision for excellence, the Junior Victorias look forward to an exciting season under Anderson’s guidance.
Please join us in extending a warm welcome to Tyler Anderson as the new Head Coach of the St. Vital Junior Victorias!
