Boys Varsity Hockey

Boys Varsity Hockey

The boys varsity hockey team competes within the Keller Division of the ISL. The philosophy of the program is to provide an exceptional educational experience by teaching life lessons through a sport in which the players love to compete. The focus of our program is the TEAM as we work to create a culture that has a clearly defined ethos of teamwork, leadership, respect, hard work, preparation, integrity, and honesty. Our culture is one of nourishment and accountability. For this to work, our coaches build strong, productive relationships with the young men whom they teach and coach. Our style of play is to possess the puck and to attack. To enculturate this, the coaches utilize small games and activities within the course of each practice.

Brian Day

Head Coach At nobles since 2000

Coaching Philosophy: Every day, we want our players to have fun, to be challenged, and to grow as hockey players, as teammates, as leaders, and as young men. We seek to play a game based on speed and skill. To accomplish this, we incorporate numerous small games and activities designed to enhance each player’s skill development, competitiveness and hockey IQ.

Playing Experience: I played football, hockey and baseball in high school and continued playing hockey at Hamilton College.
