FOR YOUTH, JRS, PROS!
Colorado Thunderbirds very own Executive Director, Angelo Ricci, is regarded highly in the world of hockey, and makes a big impact with all levels from Youth to Juniors to Pros! Most recently, Angelo, was hired as a NHL Skills Coach for the Philadelphia Flyers to "help players improve in various areas --shooting, stick handling, skating, winning more puck battles, to name a handful--and that it will lead to more victories."
"When you have practices, 'you want to maximize your time on the ice and work on your skills,'" James van Riemsdyk, Flyer's left winger said. The Flyers' players have good things to say about Angelo and his skills coaching with descriptions like "infectious enthusiasm...how they like to be around him while learning....upbeat, positive guy... making sure everyone is feeling confident...high energy....what he does can only add to the toolbox for the organization... is great!"
Colorado Thunderbirds are proud to have such an asset in Angelo Ricci as our Executive Director and Coach, and look forward to watching his hockey legacy continue. Best of luck to Angelo, Colorado Thunderbirds, and Philadelphia Flyers this season!
