Shane Sowden is the Men’s Head Basketball Coach at Briercrest College in Caronport, Saskatchewan, Canada. He is also part of the Thrive On Challenge mentorship team and hosts the Culture Builders Podcast in support of the mission at Thrive on Challenge.

Shane grew up playing a variety of sports and ended up focusing on basketball and baseball in high school which led to a baseball scholarship opportunity at Northwestern State University in Louisiana. After university he was offered a varsity boys basketball head coaching position back in his home town so he moved back home after graduation to begin his coaching and teaching career. After his 5th season coaching high school ball, Sowden was asked to take over a struggling women's basketball program at Briercrest College in Caronport, Saskatchewan. After 4 seasons he resigned and went back to coaching and teaching at the high school level where he spent the next 7 years as a teacher, administrator and coach. At that point Sowden felt the desire to get back into the college game and was hired to take over the men's program at Briercrest College where he has been since 2018.
