We feel we have the best coach possible for our boys this season. Never have I met a more positive person. Or one that has given so much to a group of boys. He cares so much for our boys and works extremely hard to help each player reach their full potential. His primary objective is to develop the boys to be good citizens, healthy and strong athletes and talented hockey players and in that order of priority. His coaching program includes elements for each of these areas.

He shares his practice plans in advance with the boys and includes videos to demonstrate the drills so the boys can get the most out of practice. He had regular meetings with the players to give feedback on their strengths and development priorities. His feedback is always positive and specific so that it’s actionable. He recently shared video footage of a game with us along with specific plays for each player that he wanted them to watch. Some were examples of what they did well and some were examples of where there could be other options. This took an incredible amount of time to do for each player.

He’s teaching them not only hockey skills but how to think the game of hockey. He also gives players a chance to play a different position to see the game from a different perspective.

Adam also has high standards for their behaviour and expects them to represent Oakville, the team and their parents with pride. He communicates his expectations to the boys and outlines the consequences. He encourages team building by limiting electronics at tournaments. He brought table games to one restaurant so the boys would interact.

He encourages leadership by asking the boys to take turns to address the team before a game. And, be the last one to leave the dressing room to do a final sweep to ensure it’s left better than how we found it. He recognizes players by awarding player of the game with the ceremonial blue hard hat that gets adorned with the players #.

His most important initiative is around giving back to the community. He’s asked each player to come up with a way to do something good for someone else and invite the team to participate. So far we have done the following: planted trees, created a book exchange program and a book drive, collected socks for the homeless, softball game with Special Olympians, wore purple to pay respect and contributed to the fund of a family.

We feel honoured to have Adam as our team’s coach and feel he deserves recognition.
