Kankakee Irish and Coyote hockey clubs have an amazing foundation for young athletes to use as a stepping stone to success. Success is not defined by wins and losses. At KYHC we will define success as setting goals and learning how to accomplish them. 

With the hiring of our High School Varsity coaching staff for 2022-2023 season we have taken the first steps to creating a new culture to build further on that existing foundation. Coach Phil and Coach Rick bring a winning mix of experience from two different generations and have proven their ability to teach the skills necessary for success on and off the ice. 

I look forward to focusing on our Coyotes program this coming fall and continuing to build our future high school stars for Kankakee. Skating and passing make great hockey teams and our coaches know that. Using USA Hockey's American Development Model we plan to build stronger skaters and more complete hockey players and young athletes alike.

Following our previous year, our club has the potential to achieve great amounts of success in the coming years. I plan to push all players out of their comfort zones to become not only better players, but better leaders on and off the ice. With our solid foundation of returning players, we as a coaching staff expect to be serious contenders in Hayes league playoffs and state playoffs as well. We will prepare accordingly and appropriately in order to do so.
