He has been a technical coach for clubs throughout the GTA area for the past 10 years and is a dedicated volunteer coach for DFC with our Little Dragons, and more stepping into his role with our academy teams.

Practices and games should be fun and focus to keep the game fun. The more they enjoy what they do, the more they will develop. Ultimately the focus is always on the long-term development of the player and not what he/she won this year. He also believes that all coaches should use age appropriate drills and activities while running their training sessions. The more they learn at the younger years, the better they will become in the future.
