U11 AA Coach Bio

Sean DeSilva – Head Coach

Like most Canadians, Sean fell in love with the game of hockey at a very young age. He played competitive hockey throughout his childhood into university. He also played Men’s hockey and has been involved in coaching in some capacity for most of his adult life. In addition to hockey, Sean has vast experience in coaching, leadership training, baseball, boxing, golf and martial arts.
Sean has been involved with the Panthers organization for a number of years in some capacity. He has coached at the house league, Development Stream, Novice A and Atom A level. He has made great strides in developing an amazing group of young athletes through team culture, consistent messaging, skills development, purposeful repetition, skill proficiency, muscle memory, age appropriate discipline and positive reinforcement.

In addition to their skills development and improved play, he also teaches them the value of hard work, being a good team mate, student and member of the community. He and his coaching staff provide their players with an inclusive team culture  and safe environment for them to learn and develop.

Sean is an extremely organized individual and his teams and coaching staff are always very well prepared. He has the experience, organization, systematic approach to development and attitude that aligns well with the Central York Panthers Core Values.
