Nathan Coffin

Bench Coach

Coffin is a former catcher who played Midget AAA in St. Albert, attended the baseball academy in Lethbridge and then went on to the University of Alberta baseball club. That turned into coaching the Hawks Collegiate team, where he’s been since 2016. “I just love being around the Riverhawks team,” reflects Coach Coffin. “I never had any brothers growing up, so growing up being around baseball, it’s like having a bunch of brothers.”

Baseball has been in Coffin’s blood before he was even on solid food. “Literally the day I came out of the hospital, I didn’t go home; I went straight to my dad’s ball game.” Growing up, Coffin’s extended family enjoyed playing slow-pitch games together for over twenty years! He fondly recalls seeing the Edmonton Trappers team with his grandpa who had season tickets back in the day.
