Richard Gallant


Richard GallantWithin the Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board, there are a tremendous amount of influential athletic leaders whom we wish to recognize. These exceptional staff members contribute to a competitive, vibrant, safe, and fair athletic experience for our student-athletes.  


From St. Joseph’s Catholic High School in Barrie, we recognize the outstanding contributions of Richard Gallant.  Richard has been mentoring student-athletes in our SMCDSB community for twenty years and was recently nominated by his colleagues who shared:


“Richard has an extensive background in coaching soccer at numerous levels.  During his tenure at St. Joseph’s Catholic High School he has shifted his focus to basketball and ultimate frisbee.  His Junior Boys Basketball teams have captured the CSASC titles each of the last two seasons and have participated in GBSSA Championships both years.  Richard’s strength is very much teaching student- athletes and demanding effort and fair play. He routinely plays all of his players and ensures each athlete feels like a valued member of the team.”


We would like to thank Richard for his remarkable athletic leadership and commitment to Catholic education!
