Rob was born in a small rural community in Alberta, Canada. He started playing hockey in his home town of Mundare, Alberta. After he finished his youth hockey he pursued his playing career for the local junior B team in Vegreville, Alberta and then moved on to play junior A in Saskatchewan. After his playing time in juniors, Rob attended a few professional tryouts/camps but decided to change paths and get involved in goalie coaching/training back in his home town.In 2007 Rob moved down to Southern California and took a job at the Ice Station in Valencia, CA as a professional staff instructor and the Valencia Express then the Valencia Flyers goalie coach. In his time in Valencia, Rob has trained dozens of goalies from mites to adults. He has trained and developed many goalies that have and currently play elite AAA, prep school and juniors. Many of his goalies have been fortunate enough to have a lot of success in their youth careers by winning league titles in SCAHA, CAHA and even a national championship.Rob’s greatest joy in coaching is being able to share his passion for hockey with kids and watching them grow and develop into great athletes and people.
