Coaching Philosophy­
Ice hockey has been a big part of my life for twenty-five years.  I played youth hockey in the Southern California area in the early nineties and continued to play in the early 2000’s.  My coaching career began shortly after and I quickly developed a passion for it.  I have coached at the Mite, Squirt, Pee-Wee, Bantam and Midget levels, including a dual Manager/Assistant Coach role on the 2012-2013 SCAHA Champion California Heat Bantam B team and Assistant Coach on the 2013-2014 SCAHA Champion and CAHA Finalist California Heat Bantam A team.
Key Aspects Of My Coaching Philosophy

◦ Discipline  

◦ Competitiveness

◦ Team Work

◦ Dedication

◦ Commitment

◦ Honesty

 
Reasons For Coaching
I view coaching as a unique opportunity to assist young people with reaching their potential and laying a ground work for future success as adults.  In addition to having fun, youth sports present opportunities to learn how to overcome adversity, it teaches how to look past oneself and focus on the bigger picture and it provides the environment for young people to learn how to push themselves beyond what they think they can do.  It is a privilege to be a part of that process. In addition to teaching them the game of hockey, my goals as a coach are to help young people develop mental toughness, learn the importance of being physically fit and understand the importance of working well within the structure of the team.  Integrity, dedication, perseverance, sacrifice, discipline and a strong work ethic are the pillars of my approach to coaching.
