This October, I begin my 16th season as an assistant coach of the Gustavus Adolphus College women’s hockey team. I primarily work with the goalies but also assist with recruiting future student-athletes.
My older brother Mike is the team’s head coach, while a younger brother, Pat, serves as a volunteer assistant.
I usually make it to practice on Wednesday nights. During that time, I work with the three goalies as a group and also get one-on-one time with each of them.
I then rejoin the team on weekends and am on the bench during games.
During our the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference schedule, we face-off against St. Thomas, Augsburg, Saint Benedict’s, St. Catherine’s, St. Olaf, Concordia, Saint Mary’s, Bethel and Hamline.
Our non-conference games are against UW-Eau Claire, UW-Stevens Point, UW-River Falls, UW-Superior and St. Norbert’s.
Also this year, we are going to Europe and will have the opportunity to play a handful of exhibition games.
I am looking forward to another exciting season of coaching the Gusties.
