Welcome Luke Puiras U10 (2011 birth year) Head Coach
Submitted By Jill tenHag on Tuesday, February 18, 2020
Huron Perth Lakers welcome Luke Puiras as Head Coach for the U10 team for the 2020-2021 hockey season.

Coach Luke Puiras grew up playing hockey in Toronto.  He played 5 seasons with the Toronto Red Wings where he captured a silver medal at the OHL Cup.

He played 2 seasons in the OJHL with the Toronto Jr. Canadiens & Pickering Panthers.  After 2 seasons playing Jr. A he decided his playing career came to an end and wanted to pursue life away from hockey.

After a few years away from the game where he met his wife and started his family.  He ultimately felt the calling to start training young hockey players.  After spending 4 years working as a skills coach and coach in Toronto, life brought him to St. Marys.

Since moving to St. Marys he opened Stonetown Hockey Academy where he trains players of all levels.  He spent 2 weeks in Tatarstan, Russia running a master class.  This is where he got to meet coaches and athletes who helped challenge him to change his own philosophy on the game of hockey.

Luke's modified philosophy is to celebrate our mistakes twice as much as our successes.  This creates an atmosphere of growth and development.  In practice the athletes will be challenged with dynamic skating, stick handling and shooting drills as well as be taught team systems and values in a 3 zone approach.

You can't expect to challenge your athletes and have them not make mistakes.  There is no such things as perfection.  The only thing that is truly noticeable is effort.  

I can'ts are really I won'ts.  There is no such thing as difficult.  There is new.  If you are willing to work hard and meet your mistakes with acceptance and determination, YOU WILL!!!!!
