Curt Toneff is going into his 3rd season as the head instructor for the on ice portion of Prime’s High Performance Hockey Program.
Curt is a career hockey coach after transitioning straight from playing Junior into coaching. Curt’s off-season coaching philosophy is to master the basics early in July via power skating, edge control, and individual skill; then progress to more dynamic, explosive and specific skills such as flow, battle and position specific drills, ultimately peaking his athletes for main camps and tryouts in August.
Curt understands that each athlete has specific strengths and weaknesses as a player. Curt creates an on ice training plan aimed at not only improving the athletes weakness, but also to continue to improve what the athlete is good at, allowing each individual the opportunity to dominate their competition.
Curt has coached many players that have gone on to play NCAA and pro hockey and has been an assistant coach to 2 ex NHLers where he gained valuable guidance and drill inventory.
He relates to the players well and challenges them to be better and more detailed every session.
Coach McCarrick grew up in the small town of Port Hardy, where he was given the opportunity to be on the ice both playing and coaching hockey a lot.
Cam has always been a natural coach and leader, and at a young age often found himself volunteering as the coach at practices in Port Hardy. These experiences, led Cam to obtain his Development 1 in coaching, and has been been assistant coach of the Nanaimo Buccaneers during their two best seasons.
Coach McCarrick is a North Island Silvertip, Oceanside General, Nanaimo Clipper and Victoria Grizzly alumni.
Coach McCarrick recently graduated from Vancouver Island University with his Bachelor of Physical Education degree, and is in the process of becoming a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (C.S.C.S).
Cam’s qualifications combined with his natural ability to be a leader and coach make him a valuable team member at Prime’ Sport Performance both as a performance specialist and an on-ice coach.
