PrintDave Paterson (U15 AA)

Like most Canadians, Dave Paterson fell in love with the game of hockey at a very young age. Being
actively involved in coaching in some capacity for most of his adult life, he has had the pleasure to coach
many athletes across a wide array of levels. With vast experience in coaching, leadership, sports
psychology, and team building, Dave has been involved with the NMHA for a number of years in
different capacities, having coached house league, Select, and ‘AA’ hockey. He has made great strides
during the past season with this team in developing an amazing group of young athletes through team
culture, consistent messaging, skills development, purposeful repetition, skill proficiency, muscle
memory, age appropriate discipline and positive reinforcement. Teaching them the value of hard work,
being a good teammate, student and member of the community, Dave and his staff provide the players
with an inclusive team culture and safe environment for them to learn and develop. His experience,
organization, systematic approach to development and attitude aligns well with the Association’s core
