Mike JohnstonMike is excited and looking forward to
the upcoming season with the Peewee B team.
He has been a coach in both girls and boys Rep Hockey for 23 years and
played Rep hockey with the Chinguacousy minor hockey association (CMHA). This experience and other educational
opportunities have provided Mike with many ideas on how to develop and grow
this year’s Peewee B team.
Mike’s coaching philosophy revolves
around three things a player must develop to be successful: game sense,
attitude and skills. His theme as a
coach is to teach the girls to never stop learning and to show them the
importance of giving 110% in whatever they do, both on and off the ice. Mike
works hard to create a safe environment that is positive and respectful to the
female athletes through encouragement, teaching and fair discipline when
needed. Open communication between
parents, coaches and players will create success for the team.
Trevor ElmslieTrevor is a long-time resident of Guelph and the father of 2 daughters playing in the GGHA in Bantam and PeeWee. He has coached with the Fundamentals and AtoMc programs for several years, coached the Preston High School Girls Varsity team for many seasons, and has spent the last three years with the Atom and PeeWee Guelph Gryphons rep programs.
The two things of primary importance for girls on his teams are that they put 100% effort every time they strap on their skates to improve their skills and abilities, and that they show good sportsmanship, teamwork, and are role models both on and off the ice.
He is very much looking forward to working with all the families throughout the season. Go Gryphons Go!
