Tanner or ‘Ves’ has been with the MAP program for 8 years. This year will be his first as an instructor. We are very excited to bring Tanner onto the staff as he knows exactly how we operate and can add very valuable insight to the kid. His favorite part about MAP is getting to know everyone through out the program. “As a player I enjoyed getting to know the coaches and having fun at the rink. MAP is a great place to work hard, have fun and learn a lot. Being on the other side as a coach, I really enjoy getting to know all the players. Its great to see players I recognize and to meet new players I haven’t met yet.”
