Initial press release…
It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of Rob Hilbert. Rob died suddenly and unexpectedly on Saturday July 30 at the age of 50. He is survived by his Wife Kristie and his 6 children.
Rob was one of the longest-serving coaches at the club and served both Pride and the community at large with distinction for many years. He was a warm and genuine man who was loved by so many Pride families both past and present. To say that he will be missed is to make a huge understatement as he embodied so much of what we stand for as a club. He coached in both the Competitive and Recreational programs, always willing to give his time to those under his care. He was named Competitive Girls Coach of the Year by CSA in 2020.
A tribute will take place at the upcoming Pride Of The Rockies tournament with details to follow. We look forward to honoring his legacy further this Fall. For those who wish to provide support for his family at this time, see the following GoFundMe link: https://gofund.me/147ef3b9
