U15AA & U18AA Coaching Appointments
BADGHA are excited to announce the following coaching appointments for our U15AA and U18AA programs for the 2022/23 season.
Tryouts will commence in April, please check back for dates and times.
U15AA Coach – Mike Ellis
Mike coached our first ever U15AA team to provincials during the 2021/22 season and will be returning to coach our 2022/23 team. He brings along a terrific resume including Skating and Skills instructor with Nashville Predators, Player development consultant for Toronto Maple Leafs and most recently the Director of Skill Development with the Tampa Bay Lightning. Mike will be expanding his role within BADGHA by supporting player development with our seeded teams. We are excited Mike will be continuing his journey with BADGHA and thrilled he is part of our team.
U18AA Coach – Joe Molinari
Joe played his junior hockey in London at the highest levels and then made the exciting move into training young players through local hockey academies where he was, and continues to be, an instructor. Recently, Joe has added to his resume by coaching U15 and U18 boys at the AA and AAA levels in London. His focus has always been on developing young players and preparing them for the next level of their hockey careers and he is excited to be brining that passion to BADGHA. Joe has surrounded himself with some of the top NCAA D1,D2 & D3 female players during his coaching career and will have their support throughout the season. This is a great appointment for our already solid U18AA program and we are excited to welcome Joe to our team!
