“My philosophy is to create an environment where the kids will develop, compete, and have fun at the same time!!! We will have high tempo, fast pace practices, that will mainly focus on skill development and hockey fundamentals. I believe in instilling confidence through positive reinforcement. Players will not be afraid to make mistakes, that is a part of learning and growing. I believe in the value of teaching kids to be great teammates who support each other.”
