2019 Spring Coaches

Meet Skills Coach Wayne Brown

A  native of Abbotsford, BC, Canada,  I started on skates at 3 years old, and grew up on street hockey and rinks north of the border.  I received an early foundation for skating with instructors Marv Waller (2x BC Hockey Development Award in Coaching), Dwayne Lowdermilk(NHL Alum) and Power Skating Pioneer Laura Stamm.  After playing minor Hockey for the  AAA Abbotsford Hawks and 3 years in BC Junior Hockey League, I came to the USA  to play for the NCAA Division III, St. Norbert College Green Knights.  I graduated in 2002 from SNC with a degree in Business Administration.

I started coaching and assistant coaching various Bantam AA and Squirt AA hockey teams.  This led me down the path to spending  4 years skills training and mentoring over 2600 private and semi-private lessons at Diamond Hockey.  The last 3 years I have been the lead skating and skills coach  for the Winnetka Warriors,  Jr. Warriors, and WarHawks hockey clubs.   In this role, I have provided over 1000 small group and large group skills training sessions for players aged 6 -14.   When I'm not at the rink,  you can find me devoted to spending time with my family: wife Tiffany, daughter Callie and son Joey.  I'm very grateful and excited to be working with the Chargers Program.
