Mat Paradis

Mat Paradis’ passion for playing and coaching sports helped push him towards the fitness field while pursuing a career in soccer. It was there that he gained a passion for the gym life and training others.  Either on or off the field or ice, he knew that training younger athletes is what he wanted to do!

While receiving an Advanced Diploma in Physical Fitness Management at Cambrian College, he got the opportunity to play for the Cambrian Golden Shield Soccer team, helping them bring back post-season soccer games to Northern Ontario!  During the off-season he had the opportunity to play for the local Semi-Pro Football Team Sudbury Spartans and in the Local Premiere Soccer Division under Stack City F.C.  He also spent time coaching local high school soccer teams and hockey teams.

Once graduating with honours and receiving OCAA All-Academic Awards he knew joining the RHP Training Centre staff was the right choice for him!



Megan Potvin


My name is Megan Potvin and I am currently studying Human Kinetics at Laurentian University. Born and raised in Sudbury, I am a graduate of Lockerby Composite School where I participated in school sports such as flag football, soccer, and hockey throughout all four years. I also grew up playing with the Sudbury District Girls Association, but more specifically for the Sudbury Lady Wolves. Throughout my eleven years of playing hockey with the association, I learned many life skills as well as great hockey tips to pass on to younger generations. In the last two years, I had the opportunity to be a part of the Midget AA and Pewee AA Lady Wolves coaching staff. This role allowed me to learn a different aspect of the game, understand the importance of building relationships with the players, other coaches and parents as well as how to foster skill development and play. From this experience, I have reaffirmed my love of the sport and enjoy working with children to help them learn to love the game as much as I do.
