Scott Walton: 

Scott is a retired Canadian Armed Forces officer with 28 years service. On retirement he returned home to Guelph and has remained active coaching in both the GMHA and GGHA associations. Previous to his retirement he was active in the Barrie Women’s Hockey Association for 8 years. As a head coach and an assistant coach for all levels of girls hockey including the PWHL Barrie Jr Sharks as an assistant (video/bench coach) for his last 3 years in the organization. Scott is a coach evaluator with the OWHA and Director of Hockey Operations for the GGHA. This will be Scott's 6th year with the GGHA - In his first year, he was co-coach of the Bantam A and in his 2nd and 4th year he was the head coach for the U18 AA team. As a non-parent coach Scott brings an unbiased and fair approach to team and individual player development. Players can expect to be challenged and rewarded for their efforts.  The team will continue to promote local and import talent while travelling to showcase tournaments.  The exposure of developing players to programs and opportunities beyond the U18 experience is a pillar of the U18 program.

Sandra Payne:

Sandra has been a coach in women's hockey for over ten years in total, with experience at various levels, from B, all the way to the U16 Elite High-Performance program with the OWHA.

Sandra played hockey from the early age of 5 and continued playing at the AA and university level.

The mission and vision for the upcoming season is for the players to develop skills, hockey knowledge and team culture, in a safe and inclusive environment, that promotes learning, development and a winning mindset.

Sandra and her coaching staff are excited to join GGHA and help develop and move forward the U13AA/A team this season.
