2016 Hockey Coaches Conference
Topic: Success Through Competitive Integrity
Presenter: Blake Nill

Blake Nill took over the UBC Thunderbirds football program in advance of the 2015 season. Blake inherited a team that was coming off a record of 2-6 and hadn’t enjoyed a winning season in ten years. The expectations were high as Blake has had previous success with turning around programs at Saint Mary’s University and the University of Calgary. All told, he came to the Thunderbirds program with two Vanier Cups (Canadian National Championship), four Coach of the Year awards and an overall record of 130-47.

After hearing Blake speak at our conference, one thing became clear; the UBC Thunderbirds surprise run to a National Championship was not an accident or a fluke. By instilling winning characteristics into his players he was able to turn them into a winning team.
