Head Coach

My name is Sandy Hurd and I will be the Head Coach of the 2011 Chelsea Chiefs. I have been coaching hockey in Michigan since 2002. I am a level 4 USA Hockey certified coach and have completed the age specific modules at all levels (MT, SQ, PW, BT, MG). I have a range of coaching experiences and levels from boys, girls, high school, AAA, travel, house and learn to skate across 4 different associations. My most recent coaching position was the Head Coach of the Ann Pioneer girls ice hockey team (2010-2018) and with the Chelsea 6U and 8U teams (2017-2020). I have been actively coaching in Chelsea Hockey Association since the 2002 Chelsea Chiefs were in Squirt AA (2011-2016). 

Philosophy

My approach to this group is to follow American Development Model (“ADM”) and the LongTerm Athlete Development (LTAD) model which at this level consists of Hockey Skills (75%); Hockey Sense / Concepts (15%); Systems / Team Play (10%). The model also consists of a 3:1 ratio of practices to games. I also value equal ice times for players, off ice training and positional rotations for the players. We are looking for a group of players who plan to work hard, listen well, compete fairly, and respect the game, their teammates and the opponent. We are also looking for positive families who wish to be supportive to their player and his/her teammates
