Jonathan is coming to the Chippewa Valley from Salt Lake City where he has been training and coaching hockey players for the past 3 years. “I’m excited to get the opportunity to work with dedicated athletes and share my knowledge as a former Olympic athlete in a world-class facility.”
Jonathan’s experience will help elevate athletes to the next level partnering with our Director of Hockey, Jack Skille – “Jonathan is passionate, focused and determined to become the best coach he possibly can be. Jonathan knows that the better he becomes as a coach, the better his athletes are going to develop. He is not a coach that just ‘wings’ it, cuts corners, or picks the low hanging fruit. He is a coach that is willing to do the work, every day, and get his hands dirty. It’s all of these reasons, and more, as to why Jonathan will be a valuable part of our staff at VSA.”
