COACH TY TRAINOR

ME115 Midget White

How many years have you been coaching at Meadowvale Hockey?
I have been coaching for 11 years

What do you enjoy most about coaching?
What I enjoy the most about coaching is watching these players grow from 6-7 year old kids, and into 17-18 year old young men while playing a game they love. Time flies by! To watch the number of friendships that began through the rink has been pretty special. Also, a number of our players have volunteered during the evaluation weekends and have lent a hand to the younger age groups. I’ve been very fortunate to coach an exceptional group of young men, and watching them give back has been awesome. I am extremely proud of all of our players. We may have a few future MMHA coaches emerge from the group.

Cool tip for hockey players
When you are in net as a goalie, if you square up to where the blue line on the boards meets the ice, and then skate backwards, you will meet the goal post always. It’s an easy way to not lose your angle when a shooter is attacking the net from the wing.
