Head Coach

Stefan has been around the game of basketball his entire life. His basketball roots trace back to former Yugoslavia with traditional military first and basketball second upbringing. 

Immigrating to Canada as a 10-Year-old Serbian Refugee, his passion for coaching is fueled by his commitment to player development and a desire to give back to the game that he loves. Stefan’s coaching journey started out by developing players at his alma mater, St Joan of Arc CHS, and in 2020 began coaching club & high school basketball. With strong Serbian basketball ties, experience as a high-level player, and commitment to the craft of coaching, Stefan brings expert knowledge on player development with a special focus on shooting the basketball.

As a high school player, Stefan worked tirelessly to become a high level player that was known as a long range specialist. This led to his recruitment to REDA (Regional Elite Development Academy) in their inaugural season & Georgian College. During his time at Georgian, Stefan was an OCAA All Star, OCAA All-Rookie Team, 2x CCAA All-Academic, and led the team in scoring, 3pt %, steals during his rookie season.
