Why did I get involved with the Assisted Goals Foundation?

I have been involved with youth/adult hockey for 24 years in Western Pennsylvania with USA Hockey. During those years, I have coached at a myriad of levels and was a program director for 13 years for a program sponsored by The National Hockey League to provide an opportunity for social and economically dis-advantaged boys and girls, the opportunity to learn how to play ice hockey. The game of ice hockey is expensive. There are many families that would love to have their child play this great game but one factor is a reason that families do not participate: the exuberant cost of this sport.As someone who has been involved in hockey both on and off the ice, I feel that the mission of Assisted Goals Foundation is something that I strongly believe in and the opportunity to be a member of this foundation, to develop Assisted Goals Foundation into an organization that will benefit EVERYONE thus making the goal of hockey avilable to those who wish to play this great game.

 

What is your professional background and how does it translate to the Assisted Goals Foundation?

 

Information Systems Technician-Radio Communications Specialist, United States Navy, (1979 - 2002). Combat Veteran of Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. USA Hockey Coaching Education Program Instructor/ Coach Developer/Youth Hockey Program Leader
