Ryan Palu

Assistant Coach

Get to know me:
I have been coaching youth hockey in Kearney for 3 years, and fell in love with the sport with my family as they progressed through the program. I am originally from Kearney and have two boys that play hockey here, as well as a volleyball player in middle school. My wife is on the board and we also host 2 storm players. Hockey is our #1 sport. The best part of coaching hockey is seeing kids make amazing progress and fall in love with the sport just like my family has done.
