Head Coaching Selections

The MCYHA Sharks are pleased to announce the coaching selections for the 2016/2017 season.

 

Caleb Swier will be our Varsity Head Coach. Caleb is a former Sharks player who played with us from 2007-2009. He served as an assistant coach on both the JV and Varsity squads over the past 3 seasons. Ed Ruhrup will serve as one of his Assistant Coaches. These two gentlemen each bring unique talents to the ice and will work hard to build the Sharks Varsity squad into a unified, competitive team.

 

Matt Saulcy and Erik Hanks will return as JV Head Coach and Assistant respectively. They will continue their program of developing our JV squad into future varsity players, leaders, and well-rounded athletes and people.

 

Congratulations to our entire coaching staff! We know it's going to be a great season.

 

GO SHARKS !!!
