I have been involved in ice sports in South Australia for over 35 years as a player, coach and administrator. I also worked at the Ice Arena (including as General Manager) and in the leisure industry for approximately 30 years.
During this time I coached our State Men's ice hockey team (Avalanche/Adrenaline) and the State Women's ice hockey team (Assassins/Adrenaline) to three National Championships each. I have also coached numerous Australian ice hockey teams at various World Championships. I was one of the original co-ordinators of the Ice Factor program. I was the first Head Coach and was involved in the development of the program from its inception and then for a further 7 years.
I am excited about the opportunity of working with the directors of Ice Rinks Adelaide to take these types of community programs, all of our ice sports and recreational ice skating activities into the future through the building of these world class facilities.
