Ravens name Colarossi as new head coach


The Carleton Ravens are proud to announce that Stacey Colarossi is the new head coach of the Carleton Ravens women’s hockey program. Colarossi becomes the fifth head coach in the program’s modern history.

Colarossi joins the Ravens after serving as an associate head coach for China Hockey and the Chinese Olympic team at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China. Colarossi was previously the head coach of the Laurentian Voyageurs, where she held the position from 2012 to 2021. Colarossi joined Laurentian after spending eight years as an assistant coach with the York Lions.

In addition to her Olympic experience, Colarossi was the head coach of Team Canada at the 2019 FISU Games, winning a silver medal. In 2017 and 2018, Colarossi was the head coach of the USPORTS All-Star Team during the Hockey Canada Summer Showcase. A current member of the NHL’s Women’s Mentorship Program and a licensed professional coach, Colarossi also served as an assistant coach for Team Canada at the 2011 FISU Games and with Team Ontario U18 from 2009 to 2011, winning a national championship in 2010.

“I look forward to having the opportunity to work with the Carleton Athletics management team and be immersed in the Ravens culture,” Colarossi said.

“There is work to be done to build on the current framework and take this program to another level within USPORTS.”

Colarossi built the Voyageurs women’s hockey program, serving as the program’s sole head coach from its inaugural season in 2013-14 through 2020-21. Quickly establishing themselves in the OUA, the Colarossi Voyageurs reached the playoffs in only their third season.

While at Laurentian, Colarossi teams achieved a 97% graduation rate, while an astonishing 71% of roster members achieved All-Canadian Academic status from 2016-2021. In addition to their academic success, Colarossi’s program has developed strong ties with the local community establishing academic literacy and youth mentoring programs and actively participating in many community fundraising initiatives.

“We are thrilled to have Stacey join our coaching staff to lead the women’s hockey program in a new direction,” said Assistant Vice President, Recreation and Sports Jennifer Brenning.

“We look forward to working with Stacey and are excited to know where she can take this program. Her leadership approach, wealth of experience and technical expertise will be an invaluable asset to the Ravens program as we continue to build a positive experience for our student-athletes.
