Meet Your Coaches

Get to know me:
I am from Kearney and played in this association growing up. I started coaching during college and haven't looked back. I have my level 4 coaching certification from USA Hockey and I'm eligible to coach all age levels. My favorite part about coaching is coming to the rink and seeing the smiles on the kid's faces. It reminds me of when I was playing - nothing else matters when you're on the ice, it's just you, your teammates and the game. It is a pleasure to give back to game that has given so much to me.

Get to know me:
My wife and I were very excited to find this great association when we moved to Holdrege, NE in 2007. All of our three sons have been playing since the 6u level. Our oldest is now a freshman in High School and our other two boys are still playing at 10u and 12u. I started the USA hockey coaching certification progression in 2014 and haven't looked back. It is a pleasure to give back to game I enjoyed my whole life growing up from 5 years of age through Junior Hockey, and to help kids in central Nebraska enjoy the best game on earth.
