President - Lindsay Theroux
Vice President - Tanya Henderson
Secretary - Brenna Bouchard
Treasurer - Megan Tyler
Player Liaison - Vanessa Hanks
The Edmonton Storm would like to thank the previous board of directors for their time and efforts over the past few seasons. Darron Bunt (President), Sarah Deutscher (Vice President) and Sharon Airey (Treasurer) were long term members of the Edmonton Storm, and it is because of their efforts that we can proudly call ourselves a successful football club today. These three women have put significant work into helping this team operate smoothly. They were always there for our team when we needed to get things done, no matter how big or small the task. On behalf of the Edmonton Storm, we wish you the best of luck in your future endeavours!
We are pleased to announce that Lindsay Theroux will remain on the board of directors in 2017, and has been promoted to the position of President, effective immediately. Lindsay brings with her a wealth of football knowledge, both on and off the field, and strong leadership skills that make her an ideal person to lead the board in a new direction in 2017. With her strong communication skills, Lindsay will work alongside the new board to keep our progress moving forward this season.
"I am very excited to be the new president of the Edmonton Storm. I have a very clear image in my head for where I would like to see us be in the next few years, and cannot wait to see what our great team of directors can do when we put our minds together. Each new member brings a unique quality and a tremendous amount of experience, and for that I am very grateful. I am very excited to get to work with the other board members and our coaching staff!"

New Head Coach - Eric Theroux
September 16, 2016
The Storm are pleased to announce Eric Theroux as our new head coach for the 2017 season. This will be Eric’s second full year with the Storm, having served as offensive coordinator in 2016.
Eric enters the position with a wealth of experience, including six years with the Edmonton Huskies, where he gained experience on both sides of the ball as running backs coach, linebackers coach, special teams assistant and special teams coordinator. He currently serves as the special teams coordinator and running backs coach with the Jasper Place Rebels High School program. On the women’s side of the game, Eric capped off a busy 2016 summer season as the head coach of Team Alberta at the 2016 National tournament and returned with a bronze medal.
In addition to his on-field experience, Eric brings with him an extensive recruiting background, a skill that is sure to assist the Storm as we strive to continue to grow our program and its presence in the Edmonton sporting landscape.
Here is what he had to say:
"I want to first thank the previous Head Coach Kay Sims for her contributions to this team and the organization. She was instrumental in its creation, and I want to make sure she has the opportunity to be here when we win a WWCFL Championship. She will be involved with our team in a coaching capacity, and I am fully prepared to make sure that she, along with all our coaches, have the opportunity to better themselves, by providing them with whatever resources are necessary. It is important to me and our organization, that not only will our players train to get better, but our coaches as well.
You can expect our team of coaches to work hard this season, and even harder in the off season, to ensure we gather the puzzle pieces we need in order to take this team to the next level. We will recruit hard in Northern Alberta with one goal in mind: to ensure that women know they have the opportunity to play a sport they love, and to gain valuable experience doing it. We also want new recruits to know about the opportunities available with the Storm, in terms of career growth, and football opportunities at the Provincial level (Team Alberta) as well as the National level (Team Canada). As a staff, we need to operate as a team, and we fully expect that to reflect within our players. A championship caliber team starts from the top down, and we will treat it as such, by consistently grading our performances as coaches to ensure our players are prepared both on and off the field."
