Meet our Head Coaches for the 22/23 Season!

Hear what our Head Coaches have to say...





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.


U-18 AA

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! 



U-17 AAA

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.




U-16 AA

 This will be my first year with the organization and I’m thrilled to be joining a organization with as much history & dedication to Edmonton as Maple Leafs Athletic Club.
I’m a firm believer that hockey is the greatest game to truly grow a person into a strong, independent future leader who works hard and smart during good times and also times of adversity. It teaches us how to be humble in times of success but more importantly how to learn in times of failure.
My experience’s in hockey have taken me to many different levels over the past 15 years, from coaching power skating with many elite programs across the city all the way up to being apart of the Golden Bears and Pandas program in 2005-2006 I’ve been head coach at many different levels male and female from Atom- Senior AA and have learned something new from my players and staff at every level. I believe in a direct approach with my players with constant communication and feedback to get the most out of them on and off the ice.
I look forward to once again learning from my experience at MLAC and commit to be a positive role model and coach for our players at every level. I operate with a open door policy and can’t wait to get started with the U16AA and U13AA teams.



U-15 AAA -

Our staff which include my 2 sons are excited and proud once again to be coaching in MLAC organization. Not only because my sons played their club hockey there but I began my Elite coaching career with the MLAC over 20 years ago. We bring over 50+ years of coaching experience and developing hockey players at the Elite level. With our program every player is as important as every staff member. We will provide an atmosphere and experience they’ll never forget. This has been our strength and creed for all these years. It all started at the grassroots level of hockey with the Tim Hortons Timbits  tourney. It continued on to our elite levels… U15AA, U15AAA, U16AAA, U18AAA, to Jr hockey. This also included coaching against Team Canada’s National Women‘s Olympic team. 

Our open, honest, accountable, “we are a family first” attitude and philosophy is essential and very important to us. We pride ourselves in having a very strong and personable player/parent/staff relationship. After all we are all in this together just like a family. So like a family we fight for each other and stand behind each other.

We believe every aspect of a players life is crucial to their complete and proper player development. Our staff stress hockey isn’t just learned at the rink it’s also the life skills we learn thru hockey that makes the difference. We push our players to demand more of themselves and provide them with every opportunity to prove themselves. We aren’t just building and developing great young hockey players. We are building and developing great young adults.

“This game is simple if you want it to be. It’s rewarding, humbling, frustrating, passionate and exhilarating. However a few things it needs to be is something you believe in, something you enjoy and strive to become better or the best”.

We look forward to having a great hockey season with a great historical club.







U-15 AA

My name is Chris St. Jacques. I am returning once again to coach with my home club after coaching a season away from the club.

About myself I played pro hockey for 15yrs and 5yrs of major jr hockey in the WHL. I have a lot of experience in the game and my goal is to develop young players into achieving their goals and not just in hockey but in life skills as well. I have been coaching now for the past 4 yrs and I am loving every minute of it. Looking forward to having a fun and enjoyable season and teaching the younger players some different styles of hockey.

Here's to a great season from our coaching staff, players, parents and organization.

U-13 AA

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! 


U-13 AA

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
