After much discussion between management, ownership and coaching staff, by mutual agreement, Jim Ingram is stepping down as head coach of the Cowichan Valley Capitals.
It has been a year with some difficult challenges for the Caps and it was felt the best interest of the team, moving forward, would be best served by a coaching change. Assistant coach Aaron Plumber will take over the main job moving forward. He will be assisted by Darren Rodney
Coach Ingram expressed his gratitude for his time with the Capitals.
“What you have here, is a great group of boys. They are committed to one another in their desire to move forward. I wish these boys and the Capitals organization much success in the future. I know that the team will continue in their work ethic, in the hopes of being the best team that they can.”
The Capitals organization is excited to move forward with coach Plumber at the helm. He brings a great deal of hockey knowledge and experience to his new role. His history with the club is a long one, and his commitment to his players is well known.
The Capitals organization wishes to thank coach Ingram for his time, effort and contributions while he was in the Cowichan Valley. His passion for the game and his commitment to his team are clear for all to see. Jim will be missed, and the Capitals wish him well as he pursues his future.”
