Rep B U13 (Born in 2009)
Coach: Mark Provenzano
I played my Minor hockey in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario before progressing to Jr. B and Jr. A hockey in Sarnia and Newmarket Ontario. I was then drafted to the OHL and played for the North Bay Centennials. After finishing my hockey playing career I gained some experience scouting in Northern Ontario at the OHL level as well as doing an internship with the Washington Capitals of the NHL in their Hockey Operations Department.
Hockey Coaching Experience
I have been a Head Coach at every level from IP to Peewee competitive. I have been a Head Coach in Rep B/A hockey for 5 years at the Atom Minor/Major and Peewee Minor levels within the Leitrim and Gloucester Associations.
I am a competitive person and strive to win every game but always with the perspective of developing each and every kid to be a better hockey player and person at the end of the season. My goal every year is to see all of the kids develop vs only a few. When each individual child develops it helps the team to have success. This comes with the understanding that each child develops at a different pace and may be at a different place on the development curve. Development can take many forms whether through skill development, situational game based development or development through lessons learned from winning and losing. I also want the kids to truly enjoy playing the game and enjoy coming to the rink so I strive to have a serious but energetic, fun atmosphere at the rink. I look forward to working with your child this year!!
