Hymie Fox is definitely one of the most successful Manitoba coaches on record. After completing his playing career with the University of Manitoba Bisons, St. Andrews Super Saints and twice representing Canada at the Maccabiah Games, he turned to coaching. His coaching resume includes positions at St. Boniface Diocesan School, the YMHA, the University of Manitoba Jr. Bisons, Nelson McIntyre Collegiate and Red River College, before a 27-year position at Kelvin High School where he coached both the Varsity Girls and Varsity Boys. During those years, he built one of the top programs in Manitoba high school sport. His beloved Clippers reached the provincial final-four seven times and were MHSAA provincial finalists, three times with the Varsity Boys and once with the Varsity Girls. In 1999, his Varsity Boys team claimed the ‘AAAA’ provincial championship.

In addition, he coached at the Royal Canadian Legion International Peace Gardens summer camp for 6 years and coached Team Manitoba to a bronze medal in the 1983 Western Canada Summer Games. He was named Coach of the Year in 1991 and received the Mike Spack Award in 2001 for his long and dedicated service to coaching. His passion, commitment and energy for the game is reflected, not only in the success of his teams, but in the many players who went on to university careers and coaching.
