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.
