Nine-time national champion Mosher enters CW HOF

UBC coach guided men's and women's programs to glory

EDMONTON – When you have nine national championships to your name, hall of fames come calling.

And that's the case with legendary UBC soccer coach Dick Mosher, who has been inducted in the CW Hall of Fame after a lengthy career leading both the men's and women's programs at UBC.

Mosher started his coaching career in 1986 with the Thunderbirds men's program, coaching the team through the 1994 season. In 1994, he also coached the women's program. He would stay exclusively with the women's team as their head coach through his retirement from coaching in 2009.

Over more than two decades, Mosher was a 12-time CW champion (7 men’s / 5 women’s), nine-time national champion (6 men’s / 6 women’s), and was named national Coach of the Year on three occasions (1 men’s / 2 women’s).

He was a 2017 UBC Thunderbirds Hall of Fame inductee.

For the last century, organized university sport has been a central part of the student experience at institutions across Western Canada. Beginning with the University of Manitoba capturing the first Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union (WCIAU) men's hockey banner in 1919-20, student-athletes have been competing to reach their full potential in sport and the classroom, while enriching campus life. 

To commemorate 100 years of university sport across Western Canada, the Canada West Hall of Fame was created in the spring of 2019, with the first induction class set to be unveiled throughout the 2019-20 season.
