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.

Chargers 3 on 3 League June 3-27

Registration is now OPEN! Space is limited!

The Northwest Chargers will once again be hosting a 3 on 3 League for Mite-aged players. The concept of 3 on 3 full ice gives the player the opportunity to improve their skill level by playing in a wide open playing environment. Players have to increase their level of play on the ice, as there are only 6 players competing on a large ice surface. Players will improve their skating, stick handling, passing, shooting and positional play during these games. Similar to pond hockey, the teams will run themselves with little coaching. Kids will have the chance to be kids.

  • Each player will participate in 4 games, 1 game per week (see schedule below)
  • Please bring a light and dark colored jersey to each game
  • Players will be assigned to their groups at the conclusion of registration
  • Skaters $80, Goalies $25

Priority will be given to Spring Hockey registrants 4/4 thru 4/14
