BOY'S coaching staff


One of the prime reasons Ontario Hockey Academy has become one of the great producer of players to the next level has been the building of an excellent coaching staff. We consistently see our coaches push and get the most out of our athletes. 


Not only have the Ontario Hockey Academy moved many players to the next level, several of our coaches have also been recruited. Congratulations go to: Richard Steadman - Assistant coach with the OHL Major Junior A London Knights; Yve Sarrault -  Switzerland Professional League and Junior team; Luke Beck - Past assistant with the QMJHL Major Junior A PEI Islanders; Marco Marcianno - Assistant with the Montreal Canadians farm team the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs.
