The Cranbrook Bucks are rolling out the welcome mat for new assistant coach Josh Siembida.
The newest addition to the Bucks’ coaching staff brings a wealth of experience to the role, along with an Ivy League pedigree.
Siembida, from Timmins, Ontario, spent nearly a decade as an assistant coach at the NCAA level with Yale between 2012-2021.
For Cranbrook’s head coach and GM Ryan Donald, Siembida’s hiring represents a reunion with his former Yale colleague.
Donald believes Siembida’s addition will immediately bolster the Bucks’ bench.
“I’m excited to welcome Josh into our organization for this upcoming season,” Donald says. “I have had the opportunity to work alongside Josh in the past, and know that he will bring a wealth of experience to our group, and continue to build our program towards the ultimate goal of bringing a BCHL Championship to Cranbrook. Adding another full-time coach has been a priority for our organization, and we believe that expanding our coaching staff will pay dividends quickly.”
The Cranbrook Bucks wish to welcome Josh to the organization and the City of Cranbrook.
