Kyle Lambourne

U-18 AA

I am entering my third 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.

Away from the rink, I enjoy spending time with my son, Declan, my wife, 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 2020/21season, and have high expectations both for my coaching staff and myself, and the team we put together for the season.

Terrence Scott

 

U-16 AAA

Terence is entering his 6th year coaching for the Maple Leaf Athletic Club and 18th year coaching club hockey, 13 of those years as a head coach. Terence has coached Midget AAA on three different occasions and this will be his 7th year coaching Minor Midget AAA. He has also been involved with 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 and has been at his current school now since 2012. He is now entering his 16th 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 in.

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.

Chris St. Jacques

 

U-16 AA

I am entering my 2nd season with the Maple Leaf Athletic Club. Last season I was the Head Coach of the Bantam AA TRAXX team. It was my 1st year being a Head Coach and I could not of asked for a better group of Kids, Parents and Team. My Coaching staff and I had a blast working with such fine young gentleman. What I loved about last season was to see how we could Develop our players not only on the ice but off the ice as well. Last season was a great success for us, the highlight was making it to the semi-finals as no Bantam AA MLAC team has made it that far in a very long time.
 
Next season I intend to bring more knowledge about the game as I learn to grow as a Coach. U15AA this season we look forward to grow with alot of the players we have seen in the club and we hope to have a fun and successful season once again.
 
I was very humbled last season as I was chosen as top Coach of the organization and I want to take that and keep providing great advice to my players to grow.
 
Away from the rink I love to golf, work out, hang out with my Wife(Leni) and son(Lucas), and play slow pitch. I know my son is looking forward to pump fisting all the boys before getting ready to go onto the ice and for me makes my Coaching staff and I ready to give it 100% to take an MLAC Team and make a name once again.
 
Until then hope everyone is taking this time to enjoy with family and friends, and to the boys out there push to your limits this summer and work hard on the little things that you can control.
 
Have a nice summer and see everyone soon!

Brad Bilida

 

U-13 AA

I am entering my 17th year of coaching hockey, most recently coaching midget hockey for the past six seasons. This season will be my 2nd year with MLAC after last year being the Head Coach of the U16 AA (formerly REM15) team. I have been involved with hockey for the entirety of my life, playing up to the Juvenile age category.

I consider myself to be a student of the game, as I will often spend the rare free evening during the season improving my knowledge of the game. This varies from attending coaching courses or seminars , watching other MLAC teams play, or breaking down game film. Many evenings are spent with myself and my coaching staff discussing the finest of details to become the best coach I can be. This can range from progressions within drills, specific word choice when explaining a concept, or even selecting the best possible hockey videos to support my teachings.

I am very excited to be coaching the newly formed U13 AA MLAC teams and honoured to be the players first experience with the Maple Leafs Athletic Club. I have being working together with the same coaching staff for the past 3 seasons, and we aim to create a very positive environment for the players on the 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.

Thien Bui

U-13 AA

I am excited to be returning to the MLAC hockey family for the upcoming 2020/21 season with U-13AA.

I have been involved in coaching in the Edmonton area for the last 12 years ranging from novice to the last couple years at the Bantam AA level.  I am looking forward to returning to the U-13 age group as it is a defining time in the development of your player.

As a pharmacist and business owner, I can’t stress enough the importance of work ethic and commitment on the path to success both on and off the ice.  Both are fundamental towards having a positive experience for the upcoming season.

I will be joined by my two assistants this year Matthew Calverley and Sean Grams.  Both are development 1 coaches and bring a wealth of knowledge to our team.

I look forward to a positive experience for your player this upcoming year with MLAC.
