This year we will be featuring a full staff of instructors that have been long standing members of the Winkler Flyers organization. Harry Mahesh, who was a member of the Flyers organization from 2006-2009, and Mike Sofillas, 2013-2014, will be taking over as head instructors. It will be Harry’s 7th year as part of the program, while Mike returns for his 3rd. Having played professionally in North America, Europe and at the collegiate level in Canada, they have a wealth of knowledge to share with minor hockey players.
A popular addition to the Hockey School last year was the addition of a dedicated goaltending instructor. Goaltenders will be able to get excellent focused feedback as space is limited to only 4 goaltenders per session.
As in past seasons, current members of the Winkler Flyers Jr. A Hockey Club will be assisting with the hockey school as assistants and in supervising roles. This will include assisting the head instructors during on ice sessions to ensure an excellent ratio of instructors to players, leading a newly revamped dryland session, as well as supervising in dressing rooms and during lunch breaks.
Morgan Mullin will have the pleasure of instructing the first all girls session at the hockey school this year. Morgan is an accomplished high performance player, having played four years with the University of Maine NCAA Div 1. She helped develop the Pembina Valley AAA model for Girls Hockey. As an educator, Morgan provides the school with a professional level of instruction and motivation. Morgan will be assisted by other high quality female assistants who have had success playing hockey in the Pembina Valley
