In our continuing series on innovative coaches and how they can get the most out of their players Boltsports focuses on Matt Doyle, who has been the Hockey Director of the York Devils in York, Pennsylvania, for the last 5 seasons, his 8th year coaching. Since then the club has grown by roughly 5% annually, captured up to 10 league/playoff championships and has been in the district championships at the u14 level, three years in a row (hopefully soon to be four).
Chris Johnston is a model hockey parent. He's served as a coach, tournament organizer, fill-in goalie, and volunteer team organizer. He’s also an artist, sharing homemade videos about the things he loves on his YouTube channel. Every winter he builds an amazing outdoor rink complete with LED lighting for lines so his kids and their friends (watch for that in a future Bolt Sports story) can play. Chris also has been known to seek out frozen ponds so they can enjoy skating and playing non-organized hockey in surrounded by nature.
