My Story

I am a 23 year old ice hockey coach from Gothenburg, Sweden. My coaching journey began when I at 17 decided to quit playing, my high school coach at the time thought it was a good idea for me to start coaching and offered me to get the basic coaching license.

So I started coaching U11 in Järnbrott Penguins, I stayed there for two years and discovered my love for coaching. After leaving Järnbrott I moved down to coach in Malmö Redhawks, this is where I got exposed to some great skills coaches, so I spent the season learning everything I could from them and I started educating myself in skills development, and that allowed me to start my own academy, iSkate Hockey Performance.

I started the academy in 2015 and I started working with some local youth teams and players. Since then I have had the opportunity to work not only in Sweden, but also Germany and the USA, I have worked with some really huge organizations, such as Planet Hockey, Hockey Camp Sweden, Linköpings HC and Färjestad BK. I have also had the pleasure of working with some top level players that plays for different national teams and are well on their way to an elite carreer. This is what motivates me, to help players get better, to help them reach the next level in their game.
