An SSAC & LJAC Alumni, Coach Mario's playing career includes stints in German Leagues, the US, and time at home in the CJHL. As most Club's youngest reserve Goaltender each year, he gained a valuable appreciation and understanding of the game from a broad perspective. These experiences shaped the foundation of his leadership aspirations.
Most recently Coach Mario spent the last 4 seasons with the Edmonton Wolves Jr. A Hockey Club (AJFHL), winning the League & Provincial Title in 2019 as a member of their Staff. Over that time he's assumed the Assistant Coach, Goalie Coach, Special Advisor and Scouting roles. In addition to operating his Development Organization (SOS Hockey Training), Mario has spent the past decade coaching various levels & age groups in the Greater Edmonton area and has been a featured Goaltender Coach for multiple Athletic Clubs and Organizations around Alberta. He's excited & honoured to join the Barrhead Bombers and is greatly looking forward to the upcoming season!
