ACAC Hall of Fame Inductee: Ray Rocheleau

ACAC Hall of Fame Inductee:  Ray Rocheleau

From 1973-1994, Ray Rocheleau coached curling, cross-country, badminton, men's basketball, women's and men's volleyball teams.  He also coached a Zone 2 Boy's Provincial Selection Volleyball Team and the Alberta Men's Volleyball Can-Am Games Team. Ray earned NCCP Level 2 and Level 3 coaching certification in several sports.

Ray strongly believed that the focus of properly conducted intercollegiate programs should be on student development through the pursuit of sporting excellence.  He believed that an intercollegiate athletic program benefited not only the participants but the college and society at large.  Consequently, his greatest sense of accomplishment and satisfaction from coaching came when hearing about former Olds College athletes coaching teams in their communities.

In 1989 Ray served as Manager/Convenor for what many called the "best ever" CCAA Curling Championships hosted by Olds College.  Furthermore, Ray served as an ACAC executive member and sport convenor. 

Ray served on the executive of the Alberta Intercollegiate Women's Fastball Association and he was responsible for obtaining the association casino license and developing a scholarship program for participants. He also served as the Olds College representative to the Alberta Summer Games Legacy Foundation which was responsible for allocating scholarships to worthy applicants.
