Athletic Director | Head Coach - Tier II (AA)
Pavel Sisak was born and raised in Slovakia has competed at the International level alongside current NHL players. Pavel worked with young hockey players on individual and team basis in Slovakia before coming to the United States, for the last 10 years, coaching in Southern California where he built a winning youth hockey program that advances players to the next level.
I grew up here in Southern California and spent most of my youth inside of ice rinks. I fell in love with the game at an early age and have dedicated my life to it ever since. I have been fortunate enough to play in international competitions, Juniors for the Valencia Flyers, and ultimately at the NCAA level at Worcester State University in Massachusetts.
I started playing hockey at the age of 8 in Los Angeles and haven’t stepped away since. Hockey has played a huge role in my life with some incredible experiences, friends, and life lessons. Long before I stopped playing competitive hockey, I knew I had to give back to the game and the great hockey community that gave me so much. I started my journey as a hockey coach and have been able to grow my passion for hockey even more since.
To properly encapsulate what the game of hockey has done for my life would not only be a difficult task, but would ultimately fail to do justice to all the positivity it has brought to my life and career. Growing up in Los Angeles in the late 80’s and early 90’s, I was very much swept up in the hockey craze generated by the arrival of Wayne Gretzky and the rise to prominence of the Los Angeles Kings.
Stephen Cohen is a Southern California native who began playing hockey at the age of 5. His AA/AAA playing experience in California brought him to a variety of programs including the Jr. Kings and LA Wildcats where he won a Bantam AA National Championship in 1997 and a bronze at the Midget National Champions in 1998 leading his team in points both years.
I grew up in Los Angeles and have been playing hockey since the age of 5. I have played AAA hockey for the LA Selects, Titans, and Jr. Kings under some of California's most influential coaches. I went on to play Junior A hockey in Canada in the BCHL for the Chilliwack Chiefs, as well as the AJHL for the Bonnyville Pontiacs.
I am committed to helping grow athletes to become better both on and off the ice. I look to teach athletes the important qualities of respect, sportsmanship, work ethic, teamwork, goal setting, and responsibility that will help them grow as better athletes and better people.
For me the game of hockey is the ultimate team game and I want to guide individuals into becoming the ultimate teammate along with being the best player they can be. To achieve this, I like to stress the importance of setting goals, and I believe a destination is not a goal, the process should be the goal.

My passion for functional fitness was ignited in late 2007 and its fire has been fueled by a passion for fitness ever since. I attained my Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology at CSULB just prior to moving to the Santa Clarita Valley. I strive to show that Functional Fitness and strength training – at their core and elements – are meant for everyone.
