Rep B U11
I grew up in Hickson, Ontario playing hockey my whole life, at both the house league and competitive levels. I continued playing hockey into my late 30’s; as the love for the game was instilled in me at an early age. I always knew I wanted to coach, and right out of university I started coaching woman’s fastball at Carleton University. When my own kids came along, I began coaching Leitrim Hawks IP, with some great mentors along the way. Through Novice (U8 and U9), I was an Assistant coach, and assisted again in 2021 with Leitrim Rep B U10 under head coach Colin Irving. Through the years my coaching style has developed into a simple philosophy – I believe that players can have fun, work hard, learn, and get better, all at the same time. I like to set a high, but achievable bar. To help each individual child achieve success, it is important to provide lots of positive feedback and direct support. I am looking forward to a great season. We will work hard, have fun, and get better as individuals and as a team.
