Coaches

A Message From Our Coaching Director...

CHC prides itself on having among the most dedicated and passionate coaching staffs in the area.   Our USA Hockey certified coaches are all parent volunteers who coach because they love the game of hockey and want to give something back to the sport that has given so much to them.  They also happen to have significant playing and coaching experience – our staff counts many NCAA Division 1, Division 3, and ACHA alumni, along with several with professional hockey experience.  Simply put, our coaches have the best combination of high level hockey experience mixed with community volunteerism that ensures a great youth sports experience for your child. 

We do it because we love the sport, not because we are getting paid to coach.  Hockey is a community, Cranford Hockey Club is a family and our coaches lead the way for us.
