As our program continues to evolve and progress, so too does our coaching staff. We have exciting additions to our group, as they join a well-established core of top-tier coaches. Coming from different coaching and playing backgrounds across the country, our staff continues to bring experience and current approaches to team play and individual development. 
The goal of the Vegas Jr. Golden Knights Hockey Club is to deliver on our core values:  


  • Create an environment that allows youth hockey players to learn and excel at the sport


  • Develop high achieving student athletes through positive team experiences


  • Demand the best of ourselves and each other 

Coaches play a vital role in successfully fulfilling our goals.  Their teaching fosters player learning, making them better athletes, teammates, colleagues, family members and students. We take to heart both the responsibility and the challenge presented in striving to reach our goals.  
Please, do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions.
