Worlton named new Jr. Generals coach

The Flint Junior Generals have announced that Jeff Worlton has been named new head coach for next season.

Worlton brings junior and college level coaching experience and pro hockey playing experience to the Junior Generals. He was the first coach for the Tri City Ice Hawks in the Great Lakes Junior Hockey League and built that program to be a contender. Worlton was looking to advance to coach at the Junior A level and thinks the Flint program has what he is looking for.

Owners Gale and Kelly Cronk believe that Worlton has the qualities needed for coaching the level of play in the Central States Hockey League and the experience and dedication to develop players to play at the CSHL evel and beyond.

Worlton stated that he is excited to work for the Junior Generals program and has the same beliefs that Gale and Kelly have in sending players to the next level.

The Generals will have their first camp June 18-20 at Flint Iceland Arenas. Applications with times and cost will be on the Flint website.
