Brendan played hockey growing up, and unfortunately due to an injury was exited from the sport early at age 12. He began swimming as a result, where he competed at a high level, medaling at Jr. Nationals, competing at Canada Summer Games, and CIS Championships. Brendan combines the discipline he learned swimming and learning mindset with hockey to deliver a unique hockey experience. Brendan also uses his work leadership experience to help develop players.
Brendan has head coached U9 hockey for the last three years. Last year, Brendan was the head coach of the Tier 1 U9 Rangers, where he was named Coach of the year by the Fort Saskatchewan Minor Hockey Association. His ability to see improvement opportunities and work on developing each individual player was a big part of this recognition.
