Kaitlin’s coaching style is centered around direct communication and positive reinforcement. She believes skating mechanics is a key foundation to a great hockey player that will separate athletes from their peers as they move through their career. Rostered as forward and defense for Team Canada, Kaitlin encourages athletes to learn movement outside of his or her position. Her drills are competitive and touch on details that improve decision making in game situations.
As with anything, a drill is only as good as the effort put in!
