Langley curling coach joins PWB Hometown Heroes team

In the run up to the 2015 Canada Winter Games, a $2,000 Pacific Western Brewing (PWB) Community Foundation Hometown Heroes bursary will be awarded to Langley curling coach Paul Tardi.

Thursday’s ceremonies at the Coast Coal Harbour Hotel brewery’s tasting room marks round No. 3 of four rounds of bursary awards ahead of the start of the Games in Prince George in February.

Tardi works full time at Celator Pharmaceuticals when he isn’t coaching and volunteering.

He has just completed the Level 3 certification in the National Coaching Certificate Program in order to improve his abilities as a coach and to be fully certified to coach at the 2015 Canada Winter Games.

“I strive through my actions to be a great role model. It is important to exhibit outstanding sportsmanship both on and off the ice,” Tardi said. “I have taught the boys that their actions have a lasting impact on those around them.”

Kazuko Komatsu, owner and CEO of PWB, said, “Our Hometown Heroes Program is designed to support the goals of the 2015 Canada Winter Games. These goals are all about sportsmanship, leadership and citizenship. Today is also about recognizing an outstanding athlete who believes in going for gold and puts down his very best every day.

“Paul is one of 16 dedicated sports mentors and athletes whose extraordinary endeavours inspire us all.”
