Why Choose Pyramid Hockey?
When asked, "Why did you retire from coaching after 30 years to become an advisor?" My answer is very simple: It is where I feel I can best serve young players and their families.
I have always been a strong advocate for the prosperity of my players. The playing field is very competitive and unfortunately, the players well-being can often be secondary to an organization's agenda. It is important to me that families are well informed and educated on the nuances of both Junior and collegiate hockey.
I truly believe that in order to sustain longevity in this sport it is imperative that you build and nurture strong relationships. Over my career I have been blessed to have made many well founded friendships that serve as a network of resources. The game of hockey, although played all over the globe, is in fact a very small world. There are no shortcuts to being successful, regardless of who you have in your corner. Without hard work and commitment, it is virtually impossible to achieve any degree of success. You must be prepared to embrace the hard that goes along with everything about life. As your advisor, I look forward to being by your side as you move forward in your journey!
