Glenn Kishi

2017 |


Glenn believes sport allows one to learn about respect, relationships, determination, commitment, leadership, perseverance, trust, organization, discipline, humility, overcoming obstacles, courage and integrity — all in the same place.

Richmond Roots Glenn has lived in Richmond for over 60 years: He attended Austin Harris, Lord Byng, Hugh Boyd and Steveston High. Glenn taught in Richmond from 1988 until his retirement in 2013. He coached both community and high school football and basketball with boys and girls at the junior and senior levels.

Did You Know Glenn has always believed athletics is a great vehicle to teach kids life lessons through sport.

Barriers Overcome Glenn started his coaching career sooner than expected due to a serious neck injury in 1975, while playing football at UBC. He started coaching back at his alma mater, Steveston High.
