Derek Allen has been coaching within the Etobicoke Dolphins organization for seven years and at competitive levels for five years in the novice and atom age groups, at DS, BB, A and AA categories. His teams have enjoyed many successes including several tournament gold medals. Derek is passionate about developing young athletes into skilled, smart hockey players, and understands that competitive hockey is as much about character-building as it is about athletic development. He knows that commitment, discipline, determination, perseverance, preparation, teamwork, fair play and plain old hard work are ingredients required for success in hockey … and in life. Derek appreciates hockey must be fun in the immediate sense, but also that more enduring gratification can be experienced by aspiring towards and achieving difficult to attain goals. Derek is delighted to be coaching the 2016-17 Etobicoke Dolphins Atom AA team and is looking forward to a rigorous and exciting program. Contact Derek at 416-795-3735 or email
