Why do you coach?

My life in sport (hockey & soccer) was at the center of my education growing up. Learning to be a part of a team has assisted me in everything I do in my family and professional life. The coaches I had growing up contributed to my upbringing in more ways than they could ever know. I strive to have a meaningful impact on the lives of my players and anyone I encounter through coaching.

Why Alaska Rush?
Alaska Rush’s commitment to development provides a healthy learning environment for players of all levels. The connection to the National club offers opportunities that no other club in Alaska can provide.

Other than coaching, what do you enjoy doing?

Skiing, spending time with my family, wakeboarding, and anytime I can spend at my cabin!
