Coaching Philosophy

As a coach, I am proud to help commit our players to better themselves both on and off the ice. I look to teach our players the crucial qualities of respect, sportsmanship, work ethic, teamwork, goal setting, and responsibility that will help them grow as better athletes and better people. I look to do all this, while most importantly emphasizing the fun that this amazing sport brings to all of our kids and the relationships it builds for a lifetime. At the end of each season, I look forward to seeing each player's massive improvement and development.

Reasons for Coaching

I was born and raised in Southern California and at the age of 5 I threw on the skates and fell in love with the game of Hockey. When I finished playing, I knew that coaching was the next step for me in hockey. I want to be able to give back to the game that has given me so much and to be able to inspire new hockey players to love the game as much as I do. With all my experience and knowledge of the game of hockey, I feel that I can provide a positive impact on each player and help teach them the important aspects of the game.
