Hockey Background

I am excited to have the opportunity to coach the U10 Gloucester Rangers team for the upcoming 2021-2022 season. I’ve been involved in playing/coaching hockey my entire life and am looking forward to another fun and exciting season.

Growing up in Manitoba, I played minor hockey in Winnipeg at the highest level (AAA). After minor hockey, I played junior with the Kamloops Blazers (WHL), OCN Blizzard (number one ranked Junior A team in Canada and winning a MJHL Championship in 1998-1999) and finished with the Winkler Flyers (MJHL Junior A). After my junior hockey career, I had the opportunity to play professional but instead was recruited to the University of Manitoba.

Playing the sport is still an important part of my life and I continue to play recreationally.

Coaching Experience

I have been involved in coaching minor hockey for over 20 years, in Nunavut and throughout Canada. Most recently, I have been a Co-Convenor (IP), Head Coach and have had other coaching positions. This past season I was the Head Coach of the Rangers U9 Gold Team.

Coaching Philosophy

The foundation of all the successful teams that I have played on, or been a part of, has been built on communication, respect, safety and most of all FUN. Our plan for the year will be focused on skill development and developing complete players. I am passionate about ensuring age appropriate development and our coaching staff will take all the steps necessary (through the seasonal plan) to ensure that players have the core skills needed to excel. For youth at this age, it is important for them to feel confident playing the game with puck tenacity and through hard work.

My goal for the season will be for the players to have had the most fun possible while developing a love for the game and leaving the year with a strong skill set and work ethic.
