Introducing our AAA Development Coach - Mike Ellis
I am an experienced and focused person with real passion for Skating and Skill Development in today’s fast paced game.  I have been very fortunate to play and coach against top Hockey Nations throughout Europe and have absorbed and developed many teaching techniques that I am looking forward to passing on to the athletes I work with.

I am a very detailed and technical based coach and Instructor. I believe the old theory of 10,000 repetitions to master a skill can be drastically reduced through delivering a detailed progression based plan and information to the athlete. This higher level of detail helps the athlete to absorb the information with more focus.
