So Cal Bombers add Rob Shick to Coaching Staff


The So Cal Bombers are proud to announce the signing of Rob Shick to the club’s coaching staff. Rob is a longtime professional referee with the National Hockey League and lives in Temecula, California.


In the mid 80’s Shick was an All-Canadian centerfielder with the Port Alberni A’s and an All-Canadian leftfielder Alberta Brake & Clutch when they were Canadian Champions, before turning full time to his career in the NHL. He originally hails out of Port Alberni, BC and was an early teammate of Doug Chase, and is well known in the BC sport world. 


His schedule allows for his availability starting in May (dependent upon Stanley Cup assignment) and throughout the summer and his family including girlfriend Linda, her children Rachel and Austin, and Rob’s two sons Brodie and Landen are very supportive of his commitment for the summer.


Head Coach Kelly McGiffin (who’s also originally from Port Alberni) said he’s thrilled to be able to add both a long time friend and an accomplished professional to the staff.


“Rob not only brings over 25 years of experience in professional sports to the table but was an accomplished and highly respected ball player in Canada in his younger years. He knows the game and he knows how the game should be played. He is rich in his understanding of the mental part of the game and having met with him a few times recently, he has shown great passion for getting back in the game. Having Rob join our organization takes So Cal another important step forward in our goal to be a professionally run and well prepared club.”


Team ownership and players welcome Rob and look forward to his contribution and leadership with the Bombers. Shick’s specific duties within the coaching staff will be determined in the spring when he and McGiffin have some time to sit down and go over the team and the season’s plans.
