About Coach Fule

Coach Fule

Coach Pat Fule has lived and taught in Strathmore since 1983.  Raised in Canmore, he received his Bachelor of Physical Education degree from the University of Calgary in 1982, and his teaching certificate in 1983.  In 1985, he also completed his Bachelor of Education degree. He has coached competitive sports for over 30 years including Basketball, Volleyball, T-ball, Soccer, Track & Field, and Cross-Country running.

In Volleyball, he co-coached the 1981 Provincial Midget Boys Championship team.  He also coached the Samuel Crowther Jr. High Boys Volleyball team in 1985 and 1986.  Because of his high school basketball coaching, Coach Fule did not coach volleyball again until 2005, when he took over the Sr. Boys Spartan’s team.

 
That season, they won several tournaments including the Foothills Volleyball Championship.  They finished 2nd in Zones, qualifying for Provincials, where they came 4th.  He also coached the U-15 Girls’ Aces volleyball team, culminating in a Silver medal finish in their tier at the National Championship.

The bulk of Coach Fule’s coaching experience is in the sport of basketball.  He has coached in over 460 high school games, 60 Jr. high games, and 35 games for the Calgary Selects.  During this time, he has won many tournaments, medaled at South Central Zones, and was coach of the Foothills League Finalists three seasons in a row. He also coached the Strathmore Shock, a girls’ U-13 club team, and the Strathmore Storm, a U-13 boys’ club team.

Several years ago, Coach Fule and his family developed a program for children in the Strathmore area called JETS ATHLETICS, an acronym for Just Enjoy The Sport. Today, JETS ATHLETICS offers year-round sports programs and summer camps to children from Grades 1-9.

Coach Fule loves coaching the Youth of Strathmore. His previous experiences allow him to easily adapt his lessons to meet the needs of his participants. Several of his former players have returned as assistant coaches in the JETS programs and many have continued on to play at the University of Calgary, Mount Royal University, Augustana College, St. Mary’s University College, SAIT, Olds College, Medicine Hat College, Briarcrest College, Concordia University College, and Cape Breton University.
