Brent White was a truly dedicated advocate of minor sports in St.Catharines. He coached baseball, hockey and lacrosse over the course of 20 years. Brent was part of the board for SCMBA for several years and he was also a big part of GCMHA. Brent started coaching hockey for GCMHA in 2015 and became part of the board in 2016 then in 2017 Brent became President. Brent's approach to coaching or being a board member was summed up in a phrase you could hear him say daily, if not several times a day, "It's for the kids''. Everything he did was to make the kids experience the best it possibly could be. Brent felt that sports was a great way for kids to learn commitment, discipline, how to win and lose gracefully and most importantly sports was where you form lifelong friendships and make lasting memories and it was Brent's mission to make those memories great!
One of the many plans Brent had as President of GCMHA was running a golf tournament. What Brent envisioned was an opportunity for our hockey community to get together away from the rink and have some laughs all while raising some money for the kids of GCMHA. Luckily, he was able to see that come to fruition.
Sadly Brent took his own life just 1 month later. GCMHA and his family have decided to continue running this tournament in his honour . The Brent White Classic. All proceeds from this tournament will be split 50% for the players of GCMHA and 50% towards Mental Health in Niagara. Suicide and mental health issues are on the rise in Niagara and help resources are stretched to the limit.
