Beverly Optimist Midget AA - Kyle Lambourne
I am entering my second season as the Head Coach of the Midget AA program for the Maple Leaf Athletic Club. With 14 years of coaching experience, 11 of those as a head coach, the passion I have for the game, both as a constant student, and as a coach, has never been stronger. My philosophies around coaching revolve around goal setting, a team before me attitude, and development for the next level. I firmly believe that creating a strong, bonded culture where players can rely on one another and their coaches, creates a team dynamic that can provide positive results on and off the ice.
On the bench I am joined by assistant coach Kyle "Skippy" Marowitch, who has coached with me now for 6 years, who will be in charge of the forwards this year, and joining the staff this year is Adam Hall, who has coached at the Jr C level for the last three years, has ACAC playing experience, and grew up playing his minor hockey in the St. Albert system, who will be taking over the defense this season.
Away from the rink, I enjoy spending time with my son, Declan, my girlfriend, Amy, both who can regularly be found showing their support at our games throughout the season, and friends and family. I can usually be found watching all types of sports from hockey, soccer, baseball, to lacrosse, and am a bit of a rink rat in my free time.
I am excited about what the prospect of the 2019/20 season can bring this year, especially with the changes being made to the Elite Stream here in Edmonton, and have high expectations both for my coaching staff and myself, and the team we put together for the season.

Lenbeth Weeping Tile Rem 15 AA - Brad Bilida
I am entering my 16th year of coaching hockey, many of which where spent coaching my three sons, or more recently coaching midget hockey for the past five seasons. I have been involved with hockey for the entirety of my life, playing up to the Juvenile age category. This season will be my 1st year with MLAC and I look forward to having a successful season and joining the MLAC family.
I consider myself a student of the game, often spending evenings attending many coaching clinics on player development, team skills and strategies. I have come to understand the importance of motivation and supportive leadership within my teams. I believe one of my best skills is the communication of knowledge accrued over a lifetime of hockey to the players on my team.
In my free time, I am involved with NEZ baseball association and have received awards recognizing my volunteer work. My hobbies include automotive repair and spending time in the country.

Bantam AA Alumni - Tyson Munro
I have been goalie coaching for the better part of the past decade, working as an Instructor with Gold in the Net hockey schools. I have spent the past 4 seasons with the Sherwood Park Kings Athletic Club, most recently as an Assistant Coach with the Midget AAA Ennis Kings. I also have spent time working for Oilers Hockey Institute and am the Lead Goaltending Instructor with Fort Hockey Development.
I am a firm believer in hockey analytics, with high emphasis on shot and possession metrics. Analytics can help make educated decisions and help you understand the “how” of hockey, not just the “what”.
I recently graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Kinesiology degree, majoring in Sport Coaching. During my university career I focused on the coach-athlete relationship, coaching theory, and sport psychology. I hope to implement these skills into my first season with the Maple Leaf Athletic Club.
Bantam AA Traxx Coachlines Ltd. - Chris. St. Jacques
Hello! My name is Chris St. Jacques, I have been in the game of hockey since I was 4 yrs old and had the chance to play the game I love until I was 35. Through my Yrs of hockey I have seen a lot how the game has changed. When I was younger I got the chance to play for MLAC and I had a great time. From there I was drafted into the WHL to the Medicine Hat Tigers, I got a chance to play for 5 yrs there. For myself I have had a lot of success and gained a lot of experience in growing into a young man. I was fortunate to play with a lot of good players and my last season as a 20 yr old to win the WHL and to participate in the Memorial Cup in 2004. After a great Jr. career ended I started my Pro hockey career. I ended up playing for 15 yrs professionally. Out of Jr hockey I got the opportunity to sign an NHL contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs. I played for 3 yrs in there organisation. Even though I did not see any NHL games I was blessed to have the chance to skate with the best players in the world. I learned a lot from these people and players how to conduct yourself on and off the ice. I am a true believer that hard work will get you places. One of my Highlights had to be in my 3rd yr of my contract as in training camp I got to share a room with Eric Lindros. Mr. Lindros was a great role model, just to listen to his experience in the game was music to my ears. Once my contracted ended with the Maple Leafs I then found myself out west on Vancouver Island. I played 2 seasons in the ECHL for the Victoria Salmon Kings. After spending 5 yrs in North America I decided to head to Europe to make a career over there. I ended up playing 10 yrs over there. I loved playing over seas as the hockey was different from the North American game. For most of my yrs over there I played in Germany. Germany is such a beautiful country and if you have a chance to visit you must go, and even better if you can go play hockey. When playing in Germany I got the chance to meet my wife. We grew together and now have been married for 4 yrs and have a wonderful 4 yr old son. After my playing career I came back home to stay in the game I love, I got a chance to sign a 2 yr contract to become an asst coach with the Lloydminster Bobcats in the AJHL. I really enjoyed my time there and getting to do what I love which is teach the game of hockey to kids trying to get to the next step. This will be my first chance at becoming a Head Coach and I am looking forward to the challenge. I do believe I have a good head for the game and cant wait to teach these young men a different style of game. I have gotten the chance to listen to the best Head Coaches from the NHL and the coaches from Europe so to mix it altogether should make it a lot of fun. Overall can not wait to get this season going as I hope to have fun with the Parents, Players and My Coaching staff on having a winning season!!
