Rob Potter has been named head coach of the girls prep hockey team and will start working with the team this week. Rob joins us from Minneapolis, Minn., where he owns and manages a hockey training program/facility attracting elite athletes from around the world. In each of the past eight years, he has trained and coached 25 to 30 women who participated in the Top 60 Camp for the best female hockey players in the nation. He has also coached hundreds of female hockey players who have advanced to Division I, Division III and US Olympic hockey teams.
Potter was mentored by Herb Brooks and Dr. Jack Blatherwick. He brings extensive experience developing student-athletes, preparing them to handle the unique emotional, mental and physical stress of high-performance sports as students.
Rob and his wife, Jennifer, have two children. Jennifer was a member of the United States women's national ice hockey team. She won a gold medal at the 1998 Winter Olympics, silver medals at the 2002 Winter Olympics and 2010 Winter Olympics, and a bronze medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics.
We are excited to have Rob at the helm our girls prep team and look forward to his contributions to the program.
