Sporting History

 

I grew up playing basketball, football, badminton, and golf before specializing in hockey. I played my formative years for the Buffaloes Hockey Association from bantam to midget; during that time I was drafted to the WHL. I played (briefly) for the Kootenay Ice and Vancouver Giants (WHL) before suffering multiple knee injuries. I finished my competitive hockey career playing with the Okotoks Oilers (AJHL). I currently play men's league hockey here in Calgary and enjoy expanding my physical activity to outdoor challenges like rock climbing, surfing, and hiking. 

 

Education

 

I became very interested in human performance, biomechanics, and injury prevention after ending my competitive career due to his injuries. I gained an interest in optimizing the way the body moves through questioning how I continuously got injured. I wanted to make sure I could help elite athletes avoid the injury struggles I went through. I gained general local training certifications and began working in sports performance in Calgary when I was 18. My passion for elite performance, physical literacy, and sports development pushed me to pursue a bachelor degree in Health and Physical Education with a focus in Physical Literacy from Mount Royal University. From there, I acquired my Registered Strength & Conditioning Coach (RSCC) designation from the NSCA, as well as my Professional Kinesiologist designation from the Alberta Kinesiology Association. 

 

Training Philosophies

 

~ Everyone in the world has developed differently in movement patterns, anatomy, and mentality. The best thing for an individual's success is NOT a general plan; it's autonomy in the process and collective understanding between mentor and athlete. 

~ If you're going to be there, you might as well give it 100% effort and focus. If you can't commit to a full effort, it may not be worth your time.

Elite Athlete Qualities

 

~ Commitment/Consistency

~ Excellence in Effort

~ CONFIDENCE
