Coaches Summary

Smbat BioCoaching Philosophy:

My coaching philosophy is built around hard work and passion for the game. My goal is to develop teamwork, individual skill and hockey sense, and instill a diligent work-ethic in players. As a coach, I want to push my players to want to better themselves both on and off the ice.

 

Key aspect of my coaching philosophy:

  • Hard Work Teamwork
  • Passion for the game Communication Preparation

 

Reasons for coaching:

I grew up in Southern California and spent most of my playing days here. I first laced up the skates at 5 years old and fell in love with the game since. I spent most of my youth hockey days here, even being the captain of the first ever California Heat team. I was able to play at international competitions, juniors at a competitive level in the WSHL, and move on to play NCAA div 3 college hockey in Massachusetts. Playing hockey has introduced me to some of my closest friends all over the country, some of the greatest experiences I will ever have, and has made me a better person off the ice. When my playing career ended, I knew it was my responsibility to share my experience, knowledge, and love for the game with players.
