As a life long hockey player and fan, he was excited to when his daughter asked to enroll in Learn to Play Hockey 1. She is currently having a great time learning the game. Daniel played youth ice hockey, roller and street hockey, not to mention spent plenty of time shooting pucks at defenseless garage doors.

He forged relationships with parents and Select Soccer organizations to enable players and families make the best choices regarding the level of play they desired. He understands the need of the elite and beginning athlete and the the important needs of both. He currently coaches a U15 Boys and U7 Girls team within that organization. He has a long term commitment to youth sports and primarily beginning players and coaches. In his previous role he co-created a coaching program centered on teaching the fundamentals of the game in a non-structured, supportive and enjoyable environment. This allowed the players to better develop in game decision-making abilities.
