Kamloops NorthPaws head coach Cole Armstrong was named to the staff of the U18 Team Canada Junior National Team.

The native of Surrey, B.C. joins long-time Junior National Team head coach Greg Hamilton’s staff for a training camp in Ontario from Aug. 18 – Sept. 1 before traveling to Florida for a seven-game Friendship Series against the United States.

“I’m really honoured and excited for another opportunity to represent my country. I think it will also greatly benefit the NorthPaws. We were excited to have former Junior National Team members signed to play with us this summer and now I’ll be able to build relationships with the best up and coming players in Canada,” Armstrong said.

The Friendship Series will take place in lieu of the postponed 2021 WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup which was to take place in September before being shifted to 2022 due to pandemic-related concerns.

Team Canada and Team USA will play a daily exhibition game from Sept. 3-9.

It is the first national team coaching stint for Armstrong, who played for Team Canada as a catcher between 1999 and 2012, including the 2000 World Junior Championship, a gold medal performance at the 20211 Pan Am Games and a bronze medal at the 2009 IBAF World Cup.
