JoeCMU Athletics is pleased to announce the hiring of Joe Di Curzio as the new head coach of the women’s basketball team. A recognizable name in the Winnipeg basketball community, Di Curzio has a proven record of coaching and administrative success at every level of amateur basketball in the province.

“We are very excited to have the opportunity to add coach Di Curzio to our staff,” said CMU Director of Athletics, Russell Willms, “He is thoroughly involved in the provincial basketball community, and with a diverse basketball resume, Joe is an individual who has proven to be dedicated to both his sport and to the community.”
