Royal Announced New Head Coach, First Female HC in Pro Ultimate

Guylaine Girard
In October 2015, Montreal Royal announced Guylaine Girard as their Head Coach [entra√ģneure-chef] for the upcoming 2016 American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL) season.

Girard was an assistant coach for the AUDL team in 2015 with a specialization in "mental preparation." The Royal went (9-5) in the 2015 regular season, which earned them a playoff spot in the East Division.

Girard is also a captain of Vintage, the 2014 world champion Women's Masters club ultimate team based out of Montreal.

With this promotion by the Montreal Royal, Guylaine Girard becomes the first full-time female head ultimate coach in a pro ultimate league. Félicitations, Guylaine! Montreal has a penchant of being pioneers.
