COACHES

Our fundamental mission is to help the players that train with us maximize their potential and in turn ignite their passion for the game of Hockey. We have found that passionate teachers sharing a Skating-based Skills curriculum with our players creates the optimal learning environment. We value the importance of coaches that are able to articulate our program, demonstrate the drills at full speed, and are sensitive to the different learning styles of our players. While all of our coaches have experienced success playing at a high level, the most important hiring criterion is that they show a willingness and ability to share their passion for the game of Hockey through their coaching.
