LDGHA Announces Intermediate AA"Juniors" Coaching Appointment
Submitted By Steve Milne on Friday, January 23, 2015
For Immediate Release:  

The London Devilettes Girls Hockey Association is pleased to announce the appointment of Ted Brown as the new coach for the Intermediate AA  (Junior) Devilettes.  Brown will be replacing Kelly Paton, who has been an assistant coach and head coach of the Junior Team.  Kelly is moving on to the next phases of her hockey career but will remain a part of the Devilettes Coaching Family.  We wish her all the best!  



Ted Brown brings strong experience with both women's and men's teams from minor hockey, to university and international levels.   Brown was formerly the Associate Women's Hockey Coach at Western University, and has written curriculum for 9 levels of hockey development for the CAN/AM Hockey Group.  Since 2002,  Brown has also worked with the unique Iqaluit Starts Hockey School in Nunavut alongside Gillian Apps.

"We believe we’ve selected the best hockey coach to move us forward," says Spiro Grima, President of the London Devilettes Girls Hockey Association.  "He has experience at many levels of hockey. He understands the importance of balancing hockey and school to get to the next level of hockey.  He has a great ability to communicate.  He's a perfect fit for what we're trying to accomplish here."

Before coaching, Brown played hockey at the university level where he was Captain of the University of Guelph Gryphons. Brown has coached teams to 3 provincial championships at the Peewee, Bantam,  and Midget levels.  Brown also developed the program for the Florida Panthers Hockey School  and Stars Specialized Hockey Camp . He has been a regional scout for Canada’s Women’s National and Olympic Hockey Teams and holds International Coaching Certificates.

Brown is also a professional educator, having taught in the public school system for 30 years.   

Brown has already begun working to prepare for the upcoming season. He will be looking for accomplished athletes who are good citizens, educationally oriented, and good team players.  

The London Devilettes Girls Hockey Association is excited about the wealth of coaching experience that Ted brings to the Junior team.  We believe our girls will benefit from his expertise, enthusiasm, ability to motivate and his commitment to player development.
