U-18 AA -
I am thrilled to be starting a new coaching chapter with the Maple Leafs Athletic Club so full of history and success.
I am entering my 15yr of Coaching at every minor hockey level including 4 years at U18 & the past 2 years with U16AA.
I believe in Coaching the Person First by focusing on Character, Committment, Integrity & Leadership with a Team First Attitude.
Our Team will look forward to coming to the rink to work hard and spend time with their teammates while representing themselves and the Maple Leafs Athletic Club with Class & Sportsmanship.
I encourage my players to speak freely with me & all their Coaches and not be afraid to make mistakes.
"BETTER PEOPLE MAKE BETTER LEAFS"
I have been coaching hockey for 14 seasons now. Four of those years were with U-18 AA, where we were successful in winning the city championships, and one year attending provincials as well.
I am extremely passionate about offence, specifically focussed on puck possession systems and style of play.
For the last 8 years I have ran off season development for players trying out for junior, and club hockey.
I am married with two boys, one attending university and the other completing high school.
Looking forward to a great season!
Terence is entering his 8th year coaching for the Maple Leaf Athletic Club and 20th year coaching club hockey, 15 of those years as a head coach. Terence has coached Midget AAA on three different occasions and this will be his 9th year coaching U16 AAA. He has also been involved in Alberta Cup 5 times in his career between coaching and evaluating players in the High-Performance stream for Hockey Alberta. He grew up playing hockey in Spruce Grove where he won two league titles and two provincial championships as a player in Midget hockey and won Rookie of the Year in his first year of junior.
Terence also is a teacher and a hockey instructor for a school in the Edmonton Public School board teaching grade 6 and he has been at his current school now since 2012. He is now entering his 18th year as a teacher and enjoys helping young athletes strive in the classroom and on the ice. His strengths as a coach is his ability to teach the game, developing players into well rounded individuals both on and off the ice, and creating a safe, positive environment for players to grow together as a team.
Terence’s interests span a wide range of sports and outdoor activities. In particular golf, baseball, ultimate frisbee, camping, boating, fishing, waterskiing and spending time with his niece and nephew.

Bring on the 2022/23 Season, it promises to be a lot of fun.
This is my 4th year coaching, 3rd year as a head coach. I have had the privilege of coaching many different ages and skill levels including u18 and u13. This is my second year as a coach for mlac; I got my start at mlac as an assistant coach on u13.
My goal for the season is to develop the players understanding of the game and provide them the skills to compete at elite level hockey.
I am very excited to coach this team and am looking forward to a great season!
I am honoured and blessed to be given another year with the Maple Leaf Athletic Club. Each year I start out with a plan. Each year the players show me another plan, then another plan. Then we work together to customize the perfect plan. We work together as a group, to grow into a team.
This is my 5th season with the Maple Leaf Athletic Club. Each year the kids to me how to be a better person and a better coach. I hope this year will bring the same.
My goal, despite the plan is to get the most out of each player. To hold them accountable to each other,their family’s and themselves. To ask them to give all they have so they can get the most out of the season
