A father of three competitive athletes, coaching is Tony’s true passion. This will be evident with every practice he plans and his relentless attention to detail. This passion fits the SSHD AAA philosophy perfectly.
The enjoyment of his players is his primary focus, as he teaches players to love the process of development and learning; not just the result. He believes making this a habit is fundamental to improvement.
Tony has coached for 12 season, eight of which as a head coach. Fortunate to work with many strong and successful teams, his coaching highlights include capturing a provincial bronze medal in 2017 and a gold at the 2018 OWHA championships.
Tony has instructed many local skills sessions, and been involved in seveal local spring programs. Over the past five seasons he could also be seen in Toronto where he has served as head coach with the Pro Hockey Development organization.
We are excited to add Tony to our exceptional SSHD AAA coaching staff.
