Lakehead Athletics is pleased to announce Adam Kates as the new head coach of the Thunderwolves Varsity Nordic Skiing Program.

Kates previously coached the ‘Wolves from 2009-2014 and understands the competitive and successful culture that is imbedded in Nordic skiing at Lakehead University.

“I am very excited to be back at the helm of an amazing team and to work within a supportive athletics department at Lakehead.  My expectation is to continue to produce winning teams that represent our university and our community with passion,” says Kates.

This year the Thunderwolves finished second at the 2018 Ski Nationals and the men’s team took home the title at the OUA Championships in February. The program has continuously proved to be one of the top in the country and Kates will only continue to excel the program in the years to come.

“I am definitely grateful for the opportunity to be back and looking forward to great things from Lakehead Nordic in the future.”

Kates will also be taking over as head coach of the Big Thunder Nordic Ski Club in September and over the years has played an important role in the success and development of Big Thunder Programs.
