Central Alberta Selects and Lacombe Minor Hockey are pleased to announce the return of Greg Esteves as the U13AA Central Alberta Selects Head Coach for the 2023-24 Season
Thank you to the Central Alberta Selects AA Hockey Organization for the opportunity to once again serve the Central Alberta hockey community as the CAS U13 AA Head Coach this season.
Entering into my second year as the Head Coach of the U13 AA program I look forward to putting into practice many of the lessons I learned during the 2022-2023 SCAHL season and also through my involvement with the Hockey Alberta Prospects Cup this Spring.
Having coached in Central Alberta for many years I am quite familiar with our CAS family of associations and am excited by the talent pool that we can potentially attract to try out for a roster spot on our U13 AA team. Central Alberta is a hub of hockey talent and our feeder associations do a tremendous job of preparing kids to chase their dreams and ambitions within the sport. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with our players in order to continue their development journey.
At the U13 AA level, most players who make our team will be playing at the elite level for the first time. I applaud the level of courage, commitment, and dedication that the players demonstrate through choosing to try out at the AA level. I also commend the parents for supporting them through the process and making the commitment to joining and strengthening an organisation which knits together players and families from our entire recruitment area: Lacombe, Blackfalds, Ponoka, Stettler, Alix, Big Valley, Clive, Delburne, and Endmoor. Our team can only ever be as strong as the foundation laid by our players and their families. I am excited about this year’s group of prospects and look forward to starting our journey together soon.
If you haven’t yet registered and are considering making the commitment to U13 AA hockey, please register via the Lacombe Minor Hockey website soon as preparations for our selection process are underway.
