Alexandre Lemieux will be the head coach, while Louis-Pierre Lauzon, Julie Tremblay and David Poirier will be the assistant coaches. Furthermore, we are also welcoming Caroline Cadotte as an assistant to the general manager, who will support our general manager Jean-Philippe Riopel.
The Montreal Royal team would like to thank Jon Hayduk and Isa Lemay who have been at the helm of the Royal for two seasons and have led the team to the title of Canadian cup champion of the AUDL in 2021. We wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors.
