Daniel McCauley

 Here’s the lighthearted, fun, and dedicated version of teaching hockey! The focus is on the enjoyment of the player instead of a stern teaching style. I’ve played hockey for 13 years and running, from a family who’ve all played hockey. Especially, a mother who has been coaching for about 20 years for the Potomac Patriots and the previous Prince William Panthers. I’m still working to improve my game and intend to play for George Mason’s club team. I work with kids up to all ages from a beginner to A travel level or B adult league level, I will continue to expand as time goes on. Keep these players motivated!

Melissa Smith

Working closely with the skater and family we identify goals that align with their vision of the skating experience – for example, extra practice to support Learn to Skate lessons, power skating skills, and even competition. My focus is on teaching the fundamentals to mastery and then building upon skills to successfully build skating talent. I also take time to explain how a skill is applied in an advanced setting to help the skater understand the technical detail as well as the next steps/growth targets. I use humor and positive feedback to build the relationship with the skater. Second only to the parent, I am my skater’s biggest cheerleader!
