Coaching Experience

USHA Level 5 Certified Coach with 10 years experience coaching Bantam AA, Bantam AAA, U16 AA, U16 AAA, U18 AAA, and Junior A. 

Coaching Philosophy: 

I coach because I love the game.  I focus on ways to bring my players to a new level of hockey by teaching them to utilize their own talent and to achieve a higher expectation of themselves.  I have an organized, systematic style and understand the role of every player on the team. The goal I set for my team is to be known as the hardest working and most intense team in the league.  I am a patient and skilled teacher and I hope to bring a very positive and fast paced approach to the game. By coaching and teaching hockey, I can aid in the building of character and teach lifelong lessons. My playing experience was enhanced by great coaching, this has given me the ability to relate to my players and parents as well as teach at a high level. I hope to share the knowledge I have gained from the amazing coaches I encountered.

Key aspects of my coaching philosophy are:

- Staying Positive
- Having a good work ethic (practices and games)
- Having fun
- Playing within your limits
- Being a team player
- Following the system
- Using speed and puck movement
- Control the things that we can:
- Discipline - no "reaction" or retaliation to penalties, control your temper.
- Intensity- Always be first on the puck.
- Preparation - Mentally and physically
- Commitment to each other -The team comes first.
- Focus - we have a goal(s) in mind and we need to focus on that throughout the year

Derek Finch

Coaching Certification Level 3

Philosophy & Mission as a coach of Junior age players:

At the Junior age level the players are still developing both as a player, and as a person. I think it is important to not only focus on the hockey side of things, but also on the social side of their development. The best way to develop in both of these areas is being in a team environment, that stresses hard work and core values.

Key aspects of my coaching Philosophy:

  • Hard work
  • Discipline
  • Team work
  • Learning environment
  • Having fun

Reasons For Coaching:

I have always loved the sport of hockey, and when I finished playing, I was looking for a way to stay connected with the game. I want to give back to the sport that gave me so much growing up. I feel that hockey is the best tool for learning all of life’s lessons, from team work to work ethic. I thoroughly enjoy helping my players develop both as players, and as human beings.
