One of the top goaltenders to ever play at Providence College, the 2011-12 season marked Bob Bellemore's 19th season as an assistant coach with the women's hockey team. In addition to working with the goaltenders, he assisted with scouting and other various duties. He is also involved with the USA hockey elite training camps that take place in Lake Placid, N.Y. Coach Bellemore helps lead the goaltending segment of the camp.
As a sophomore in 1964, he helped the Friars win their first ECAC title and earn their first berth in the NCAA Final Four. Bellemore also starred on the school's baseball team and served as the team's captain his senior year. In 1984, he was inducted into the Providence College Athletic Hall of Fame.
Bellemore began coaching as a part-time assistant for PC's men's hockey team. In 1972, he joined head coach Lou Lamoriello's staff as a full-time assistant - a position he held until 1986. In 1986-87, Bellemore held the title of Arena Director and was in charge of the day-to-day operations of Schneider Arena. Bellemore left Providence College in 1987 to serve as the goaltender coach for the New Jersey Devils. In 1991, he left New Jersey to pursue his master's degree at PC. Since earning his master's degree in special education, Bellemore has been employed as a special education instructor at South Kingston High School. He now serves as a guidance counselor at South Kingston High.
A native of Smithfield, R.I., Bellemore resides in Westerly, R.I., with his wife Marguerite. He has one son, Bruce, a 1991 graduate of PC, who played hockey for two seasons for the Friars. He also is the proud grandfather of nine. Bruce and his wife Eileen, who also graduated from Providence, have triplets, Brendan, Jolie and Laurel and the grandchildren from Marguerite's children include Zachary, Devon, Sofia, Christopher, Alec, Luke, Cole and Sebastian.
