Chris grew up playing minor hockey in Belleville and then junior in Wellington Ontario. He enjoys continuous personal development travelling throughout Ontario and Alberta to coach, gain experience and knowledge. His goal is to become the most prepared, innovative, the best skills and development coach. He knows this will allow him to prepare his players to reach their career goals.
Five years ago Chris started his own program called BP Hockey. BP Hockey “provides an engaging and knowledgeable program, developing hockey skills, shaping leaders and teammates while having fun in a bully free environment”. BP Hockey runs spring teams, offers one on one development, is hired to work with individual winter teams, runs hockey camps in Ontario and Alberta as well as provides off ice fitness sessions. Chris offers positive continuous consultation on what his players need to improve and play at their highest level. In the program players also have the option to receive personal training, nutrition consultation, and video analysis.
According to Steva software Chris was a pioneer bringing video analysis into minor hockey. He was one of the first to purchase the software to video the games then breakdown and create DVD’S for players and coaches to learn and teach from. This passion for video helped gain him an assistant coaching position in Wellington with the Dukes of the OJHL. Chris also coached a midget team in Calgary that went on to win the provincial championship. He also was a scout with Everett Silvertips of the Western Hockey League.
Chris has always had a high hockey talent IQ and has an ability to understand a young elite player’s strengths and areas of improvement. Chris is currently developing many young prospects. He continually surrounds himself with the best coaches he can and has an unmatched commitment to every player and is relentless in his quest to help them achieve their goals.
Finally his love and passion for the game has allowed him to form a unique personal relationship with the players and their parents and will do well in any organization that is lucky enough to have him.
