I know I'm often pretty heavy with my approach to hockey, so maybe friends will enjoy a quick stray to the lighter side of my involvement...
Master skills coach, Dennis Chighisola (Coach Chic), relates (rather tongue-in-cheek), "I had a hockey dream" about arranging practices for my high school team.

Story
Tagline
Master Hockey Coach, skills analyst, author and video producer known around the hockey world as "Coach Chic".
Introduction
If we were all born to do something, there's little doubt God put me on this planet to teach and coach.  I love working with hockey players -- of all ages, I love helping their parents, and I especially love advising other hockey coaches. 

And, if we do what we love long enough, we become pretty good at it.  In particular, I'd rate myself as one of the tops in the world when it comes to troubleshooting hockey problems, and I know I've saved a number of players from quitting the game just because I saw a skill or game-playing deficiency others had missed.

Then, while I'm a bit old fashion in my personal life, my rather outside-the-box approach to hockey has helped me pioneer numerous hockey related training methods and inventions.  So did it bring me to the Internet very early-on, so that I am now able to share ideas with like minded hockey folks the world over.
