Collège Coléal’s collegiate life is pleased to present the three head coaches of the intercollegiate teams of the Boréal Vipers for the 2018-2019 season.

This new season is marked by the recruitment of François Legault who joins the Vipers as new head coach of the women’s volleyball team. With 13 years of experience as an athlete developer and volleyball coach in the Sturgeon Fall / Nipissing region, François Legault will bring his expertise and energy to lead our volleyball players.

Along with Mike Dionne, in charge of the badminton team for a fourth season, and Jamie Erven, who is celebrating his tenth season leading the men’s volleyball team, they will form a team of strong and ambitious coaches to manage the Viper in intercollegiate competition.


As a NES (Nipissing District Athletics) champion and NOSSA (Northern Ontario Secondary School Athletics) with freehold, then coach of the West Nipissing Wild Club, I am very happy that Collège Boréal gives me the opportunity to bring my knowledge and my experience at intercollegiate level”.
