At Cole Hockey Systems we deliver individual and team training sessions that are creative, challenging and fun.
During the off season of 2017, I am working with a number of teams and organizations. They include: CADP, DinoMights, East Ridge Boys High School, Holy Angels Girls High School. Intro Mites and Rookies at the National Training Center, Minneapolis Girls High School, Minnetonka Girls High School, Morris-Benson Area Hockey Association, Orono Girls High School, Os and the Wes Walz Hockey School, in addition to my private students.
Regional and National evaluations and goalie instruction for USA hockey continue to be an important part of my business. This year, I evaluated at the Michigan and Northern Plains District tryouts, while working the U15 Girls National Camp at St. Cloud State University.
A number of Cole Hockey System students made it to one of the three USA Hockey National Camps. I would like to congratulate them on this achievement. They are: Ava Bailey, Samantha Burke, Alexa Dobchuk, Addie Burton, Kailey “Puffy” Langefels, Lily Deliandedis, Anne Kuhel and Addi Scribner.
In the fall a number of my students will begin their college academic and athletic careers. They are Bre Blesi (University of Wisconsin), Madeline Carlson (Bowdoin College), Elizabeth Kubicek (Neumann University), Lindsay Lewison (Marian University), Sarah Levett (Williams College) and Joie Phelps (Cornell University). Additionally, I wish to congratulate Alexa Dobchuk on her commitment to Colgate University and Sami Miller on her commitment to University of Wisconsin River Falls.
Over the course of my career I have been fortunate to play for and work with some of the strongest hockey minds in the United States and Canada. Much of this exposure stemmed from my 11 years working in the NHL as a director of fan development for the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Atlanta Thrashers. Those positions allowed me to learn from great coaches and players in the NHL, the NCAA and USA Hockey. However, my best teachers remain my parents, Dr. Johnnetta B. Cole and the late Dr. Robert E. Cole. Their passion for teaching and learning is present every time I take the ice.
I hope to see you around the rink…
