Enevoldson, the current head coach of the BC Boys Provincial U17 team, comes to the Royals with extensive experience with the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association and Canadian Interuniversity Sport, as well as a long history of coaching.
A former student-athlete at the University College of the Cariboo (now Thompson River University), Enevoldson has held coaching positions at UBC, TRU and Mount Royal University.

“I am honoured and excited for the challenges of building a successful men’s basketball program in the Pacific Western Athletic Association and the CCAA,” says Enevoldson. “In a challenging league with dominant teams, we will grow and cultivate a culture of excellence the Douglas community can be proud of on all fronts. I look forward to working with the current student-athletes, athletic support staff and administration while becoming engulfed in the Douglas tradition.”
“I am confident Joe will foster and develop a culture of success at Douglas College with our men’s basketball program,” said Athletics Manager Brian McLennon. “Coupled with his coaching experience, Joe has a strong understanding of the student-athlete experience and what it takes to be successful in classroom, on the court and in the community.”
