High Performance Coach & Hockey Hero from Edmonton, Alberta

“As the Head Coach of the U of A Panda’s for over 17 years,  I’ve seen the impact that hockey has on the development of young Canadians. With every practice, game, and scrimmage, our time on the ice is a direct extension of the university classroom and reinforces skills such as leadership, communication, and sportsmanship. We strive to be successful on the ice, but equally as important, we strive to set our players up for success off the ice through our hockey program. Unfortunately, I’m constantly reminded of the financial barriers keeping too many Canadian kids off the ice. Thanks to KidSport and Hyundai Hockey Helpers, thousands of kids are being given the chance to realize their hockey dreams.”
