Islanders Women’s Soccer Coach Resigns

Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue – January 16, 2017 – It is with regret that the Sports & Recreation department announces the resignation of Women’s Soccer Coach Valmie Ouellet.

Valmie is Club Head Coach – Technical Committee for the Pierrefonds Soccer Association. Her duties with the club along with the loss of assistant coach Ronaldo Singh who has left for Toronto with a new and promising job, made it clear that Valmie would be unable to have the time to devote to preparing and coaching the John Abbott team for the 2017 season.

“The opportunity that I was given of working for the college was a great experience from which I emerged enriched and thankful to the people who have made it possible,” said Valmie.

“We feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to have Valmie with her wealth of knowledge and experience be a part of our program for the past three seasons,” said Islanders Sports & Recreation Manager Chris Hunter. “She is going to be very difficult to replace.”

The Sports & Recreation department is in the process of hiring a new women’s soccer coach. Interested candidates are invited to submit application via email to Chris Hunter at

The deadline for applications is Monday January 30, 2017.
