Eagles Athletics welcomes new basketball coach
The King’s University is pleased to announce Jay Ouellette as the new Head Coach of their Men’s Basketball program. Jay Ouellette has been an active member of the Basketball community for over 20 years as a player, coach, and administrator. He is one of the founders of the Parkland Pride Basketball program, President and Technical Director of the Edmonton Youth Basketball Association, and a Director with Alberta Basketball. Jay’s passion for the sport can be felt throughout Edmonton and the surrounding area.
Prior to joining The King’s University, Jay has had great success coaching and developing athletes at various levels from community, club, and high school. Many of the Parkland athletes he has worked with can be found playing throughout the ACAC. As a coach, Jay and his Parkland Elite teams have secured several provincial and tournament championships. Most notably, an undefeated season in Parkland Pride's inaugural year with his girls program, and more recently winning the U18 Men’s 2019 Western Canadian Championship in Langley BC. Jay continues to be an ambassador to the sport, developing players, coaches, and programs throughout the various organizations of which he is a member.
Coach Ouellette has played at both the high school and collegiate level, and brings with him a wealth of knowledge to build into the men’s basketball program for the future. It is this passion and diversity that we feel will be a great asset to the Men’s Basketball Program. “We are very excited to have Jay join our Athletics staff at King’s, and look forward to the new and innovative ideas that he will bring into our program,” stated Director of Athletics, Grace Scott.
