Rams announce Cheverie as new assistant coach
TORONTO – The Ryerson Rams men’s hockey team is pleased to announce the addition of Kori Cheverie as full-time assistant coach to the staff.
The appointment of Cheverie is an historic one, as she becomes the first female hired as a full-time assistant coach in Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) men’s hockey.
“Our men’s hockey program has made significant strides in their performance in the last several years. The addition of coach Kori to our coaching staff will provide much needed support to continue the momentum as we build towards a national championship program,” said Director of Athletics, Dr. Ivan Joseph.
Cheverie has spent the last three years at Ryerson in the role of Skate Training Specialist and already has strong knowledge of and relationships with the Rams players.
“We are very excited to add Kori to our coaching staff as she brings great experience, energy, and commitment to our hockey program and will continue to add value to our department as a whole,” said interim head coach, Johnny Duco.
Outside of Ryerson, Cheverie played her collegiate hockey at St. Mary’s University in Halifax where she was a three-time AUS first-team all-star, team captain, an Academic All-Canadian, and two-time St. Mary’s female athlete of the year. She has also played in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League (CWHL) for the past six seasons.
Cheverie is currently completing her High Performance 1 certification from Hockey Canada and will start her new role on August 15 as the team prepares for training camp. The Rams open the regular season at home on October 6 against Laurier.
