Coach Conroy has been teaching kids since Spring 2006 in both Hockey and Floor Hockey out of Chestermere, Alberta.
At Conroy Hockey we focus on teaching your kids 3 things:
- Actual Hockey SKILLS, Skating, Shooting/Scoring, Passing, Stickhandling and Intensity in an upbeat, sweaty environment.
- A proper work ethic and that hard work is fun!
- Good manners, respect and discipline. Coach will discipline your kids as they need if that scares or offends you we aren’t for you. Well behaved kids learn faster and the classes are more fun when everyone pulls together.
We are indeed old school and the kids love it and BENEFIT from it! It is new to many of them but they get it. We reward them when they have earned it and we readily correct their behavior when they earned that also.
Teaching kids to be better hockey players and better kids is simply our passion, Conroy Hockey is the personification of tough love! We get better every year as we learn also.
Please note: there is an excellent chance my stick will meet your child’s butt when they need it.
We focus on teaching skills, it is proven that practice is 11 times more valuable than a game for learning actual skills and kids love to work hard in the right environment.
Please check our practices out. I am willing to bet the kids move 2 times more at our practices than your winter practices.
All practices are led by Coach Conroy (W. George Conroy). Additionally we have 4 young coaches all from Chestermere all playing at the top of their game.
Our coaching leaders are:
W. Ryan Conroy: Asst. Captain Fort McMurray Oil Barons.
Coach has trained Ryan for 12 years and Ryan has taught kids for 5 years now and has amazing skills and a fantastic work ethic.
The kids love him and he enjoys teaching them.
Ryan joined the AJHL as a 16 year old defenseman and made the Rookie All Star Team last year.
In his 2nd year he received the A and is having a great year and will soon be trying out for the World Junior A Championships.
Tyson Laduke: Kindersly Klippers
Tyson joined us at the end of last season and he is almost as strict as Coach, he is great with the kids and will teach them his passion and skills.
Tyson is a skilled player with an edge he like all of the Coaches embodies Conroy Hockey.
Tyson made the jump to Junior A this year and is looking for a NCAA scholarship.
Trey Gillis, Minor Midget AAA, Okotoks
Trey is another Chestermere product and plays the kind of game Coach teaches, strong, aggressive and smart, the prototypical Power Forward!
I have trained Trey for 4 years so far and he has taught for 2 years.
Trey is a big kid but the big kid is the softest Coach, but I am working on it.
Nate Gillis, Bantam AAA, Okotoks
Nate and Trey are brothers and Nate is literally the best kid I know and your kids are lucky to have a mentor like Nate.
I have also trained Nate for 4 years and he has helped and taught for 2 years. Nate is stay at home defensive man with a physical edge and he is also the best listener I have ever taught.
The Gillis kids will both continue to play good hockey in the future I assure you!
