Gino Porco – Head Coach U15 (2008)
Gino has been coaching athletes of all ages in competitve sports for over a decade including soccer, inline hockey and ice hockey.
Gino has a deep passion for mentoring and developing players and being the type of leader that they can look up to (even though most players are taller than him these days).
All of his teams follow a similar “identity” as he encourages his players to lead by example and be unselfish by putting the team first and above everything. His teams are committed to a common purpose, set of goals, and approach that everyone is held mutually accountable for throughout the season.
He believes that having discipline is key in any competitive sport and hockey is no different; showing respect for players, coaches, referees, spectators and other teams alike, while outworking opponents and always excelling with optimum effort.
Gino’s mantra fuels his players to be “better than their best” and helps them achieve elite success on and off the ice.
