COACHING PHILOSOPHY

My philosophy is grounded in player development. My players are provided with a patient and educational learning environment, incorporating up-tempo, high-intensity practices that emphasize aggressive play and strategic team systems.

With an emphasis on positive reinforcement each player will learn what it means to be committed to the coaching staff and their teammates, while being held accountable for their actions both on and off the ice.
