Mike Maltais (U16-BB) (Newmarket Minor Hockey)

PrintMike Maltais (U16-BB)

My name is Mike Maltais and I have been involved with the NMHA for over 10 years. The 2024/25 season will be my 11th season on the bench, either as a head coach or assistant coach, helping develop the 2009 age group. I have had the experience of coaching at all the levels offered by our rep program and look forward to another season as the head coach of the U16 BB team.


Coaching is a passion of mine and is something I have been actively involved in throughout my 24 years as an educator with the YRDSB. I feel that I have gained a lot of experience dealing with athletes of all ages and in a variety of sports. With that being said, hockey still remains my number one passion and being at the rink is like a second home to me. 


My focus will be on continuing to develop a safe and fun learning environment where our athletes will be given the opportunity to focus on both individual skills and team tactics. Every time they step on the ice, the athletes will be challenged to compete, work on skill development, and improve their hockey knowledge in order to reach our team goals. Every player will have an important role on the team and will be responsible for helping develop our core values and team culture.
