RDMBA is pleased to announce that Randy Gehring will be the Head Coach of the Midget AAA CarStar Braves team for the 2019 season!

Randy has always had sport in his life and has been coaching for 33 years at many different ages, levels and sports. He grew up on the Trochu/Three Hills area and playing minor Baseball and Hockey and then moving on to the Senior level at the age of 17. He started coaching in 1985 while playing Senior Baseball and Hockey. In 1993 he moved to Red Deer and helped coach the Red Deer Bantam AAA hockey team that went on to win consecutive Western Canada Bantam Championships. He got involved with the Hockey Alberta Program of Excellence that same year and from there was fortunate enough to be able to coach elite athletes, and work with amazing coaches, year after year. His passion has always been on player development, mentoring and helping other coaches. In 2007 he started coaching Pre Rookie for Red Deer Minor Baseball and has carried on through coaching at the AA and AAA levels in every age group. In 2016 he was the Head Coach of the RDMBA Bantam AAA Braves as well as the Zone 4 team in the Alberta Summer Games. In 2017 he assisted Dwayne Lalor coaching the Midget AAA CarStar Braves, and in the 2018 season he Head Coached that same team.  Randy prides himself on being a positive role model who helps athletes achieve their individual and team goals through hard work and a positive attitude.  Along with being 2019’s Head Coach of the Midget AAA CarStar Braves, Randy is also the Vice President of Baseball Operations for RDMBA, a Baseball Alberta board member and was mostly recently chosen by Baseball Alberta to attend the 2019 Baseball Canada High Performance Seminar in Gatineau, QC.
