ABOUT

Philosophy

Skating is the foundation of playing hockey, and is the only skill that directly affects the other skill sets (i.e. puckhandling, passing, shooting and checking). Our approach emphasizes that you understand and learn, not only the technical and tactical aspects of skating, but also how those aspects apply specifically to your skating in the context of a hockey game. In providing you with the consistent, applicable knowledge behind your skating, it empowers you to make the necessary adjustments to improve your skating and all-around game any and every time you step on the ice.

Instructor

Brian Kreilkamp is a full-time hockey coach that teaches hockey skills and skating year-round, and is entering his 10th year of private skill development instruction. During that time, Brian spent six seasons, coaching, training and mentoring young athletes within the Milwaukee Jr. Admirals AAA Hockey Program, ranging from the squirt major to bantam major level.

Prior to the Milwaukee Jr. Admirals, Brian coached high school hockey for two seasons at Pius XI High School, serving as assistant varsity coach and head JV coach. He also spent four years as a head coach in the Elmbrook Youth Hockey Association – two years at the peewee level and two years at the bantam level. His coaching highlights include a 2003 PeeWee B State Championship, a 2004 PeeWee A State Championship and a 2010 Bantam Major (’95) Tier 1 State Championship.

In addition, Brian spent five summers coaching and evaluating top young talent from the U.S. and Canada, working as a coach for the boy’s summer hockey camp at the prestigious Shattuck-St. Mary’s School in Faribault, MN; which, according to Sports Illustrated “is to high school hockey what Harvard is to law school”.

For the 2015-2016 season, Brian serves as a skills consultant for the Southeastern Hockey Association of Wisconsin (S.H.A.W.). and the Milwaukee Jr. Admirals AAA Hockey Program.

Brian is also completing his Masters of Arts degree in Middle-Secondary Education at Alverno College.
