    Client Testimonial

    Coach Blair has been on of the best coaches I have had in career playing hockey. He helped me when I was in my first year Midget AAA by helping me improve all aspects of my game with the drills he ran for my on ice skills and the office help to improve my hockey smarts. He is very professional in the way he runs practices and the way he communicates with his players. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to improve their game. – Zack Hayes, Captain of Prince Albert Raiders

    Hockey sense, Determination and Intensity

    We have had the pleasure, and honour of having Blair Courchene as a coach to both of our boys Dylan and Robbie.  Throughout the years, Coach Blair has consistently proven that he values building relationships and taking genuine interest in his players daily lives on and off the ice.   He builds meaningful rapport and he values open, honest communication in and out of the dressing room.  Blair is a caring and compassionate person and is a very reflective individual.  Combine these qualities with being very thorough and detailed, his results are extremely successful.  He takes the time to really know each player well by learning about what drives them, what motivates them, and is dedicated to assisting each individual to reach or work towards their personal goals.– Dylan Anhorn & Family, Union College NCAA D1

    I am very thankful

    Blair was a great coach to me. He taught me a lot of great things on the ice and helped me develop my hockey skills further. His knowledge for the game was a great asset to my development and I am very thankful to have been coached by him during my Bantam years. – Braylon Shmyr, Allen Americans, ECHL

    He played a huge role in my recovery

    Blair was one of the best coaches I had throughout my hockey career.  He made me look forward to coming to the rink every day and always motivated me to get better.  He truly cares about the success of all of his players and goes to extreme lengths to ensure that every player is constantly improving.  Blair has the ability to connect with players beyond the game of hockey.  During my Midget AAA season, I faced adverse health issues and he played a huge role in my recovery and continues to be a huge inspiration for me.  – Shadee Merhi, Retired – U of C Engineering Student

    We would recommend Blair to any player

    Our son has been working with Blair as a coach for several years now.  We enjoy Blair’s approach to working with players; developing foundational player relationships and open communication as a starting point for teaching.  This is complemented by a strong knowledge of skill development and of the game overall.  We would recommend Blair to any player looking to improve their overall game.  – The Wiles Family, Spokane Chiefs 

    BAC STAFF / INSTRUCTORS

    As a coach, it’s important to surround yourself with good people, and build a strong staff.  With that, many of our instructors will be former players of mine, or guys I’ve spent time coaching with that believe in the three things BAC is about.  1.  Battle  2.  Adversity  3.  Creativity.  Check some of the instructors you will see around BAC Hockey!
