SEMI Hockey is announcing several Rep Head Coaches for the 2020-21 season. We are expected to add to these announcements over the next few weeks.
U11 A1 (Atom) – Shane Kuss claims that last season was his most enjoyable year in his long coaching career. Getting U11 hockey players to buy-in to playing an unselfish, high speed skill game is never easy, but Shane gets players firing on all cylinders. The U11’s won major tournaments and finished the season as the PCAHA Champions.
U13 A1 (Pee Wee) – Matt Erhart has provided outstanding leadership for the entire U13 division and once again will be working with the U13 A1 team. Coming off a BC Hockey Championship in 2019, Matt led last season’s team to a 2nd place regular season finish in PCAHA and a Final 4 spot. The focus on player development and creating 200 foot players is evident in the players that have been through Matt’s teams.
U13 A2 (Pee Wee) – SEMI Hockey made a great addition last season, bringing Topher Plonka on board to lead the U13 A2 program. Topher used his strong skills instruction background to instil a style of play that insisted on a high tempo and top skill execution. The team all bought in to this and were successful in earning a spot in the BC Hockey Championship.
U15 A1 (Bantam) – Chris Rengert is back with some unfinished business. Coming off an extremely successful season, in which the U15 A1’s captured the PCAHA Championship and were prepared to win a BC Hockey Championship prior to the season cancellation. Chris has been with SEMI for 5 seasons and has led the A1 team to the PCAHA Final 4 in the past two seasons. Chris and his staff have taken a lot of pride in developing players to their maximum potential.
U18 A1 (Midget) – Darin Vetterl returns as the Head Coach of the top midget team. Darin has extensive experience coaching junior hockey, leading the Aldergrove Kodiaks to the league championship in 2017. Darin has been a skills instructor for SEMI Hockey as well for a number of years. Last season Darin’s midget team captured the PCAHA President Series banner.
U18 A2 (Midget) – Kristjan Jefkins will once again lead the U18 A2 team. Kristjan was a very popular leader last season in his first year with SEMI Hockey. His player centred development approach was extremely successful getting the most out of the players on the team. The U18 A2 team also captured the President Series banner in 2020.
