Student Athletes of the Month- September

The Coeur d'Alene Academy is proud to announce Corbin Cockerill as our Boy's Varsity and Kayla Savoie-Penton for the Girl's Varsity Athletes of the Month for September.
Corbin's exceptional drive and leadership during our first month also led him to be named Captain for the 2018-19 season for the boys.  Generally the first to arrive and last to leave, Corbin not only puts in time on the ice and in the gym, but also in the classroom. He is currently a high school junior carrying an outstanding  4.0 GPA.
Mirroring that incredible 4.0 GPA, Kayla has already come out strong as the senior goal tender for the girls team as well as a classroom leader. Kayla has worked as a mentor for both teams, helping our student athletes to get organized for success and stay on track in this first chaotic month of school.
Corbin and Kayla epitomize what we at the Academy strive for all of our student athletes to be.

Autumn Fun

We're enjoying the last few days of nice weather here in the Pacific Northwest, and team building to bring a little festive holiday spirit to the rink!

Welcome Gary Redding

We are excited to announce Gary Redding as our new Midget Varsity Head Coach.  Joining Gary on the bench, will be his son Kurtis Redding.

Gary brings 30 years of experience in coaching, skill development, team building and recruiting to the program. Gary joins the Academy from Spokane, where he most recently was Head Coach of the Spokane Braves Junior Hockey Team which plays in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL). Gary was assistant coach of the team from 2008-2012 and head coach from 2013-2018. In years prior to the Braves, Gary has coached at every age, including teams at both AA and AAA levels. Gary was also a founder, operator, and coach of the PacWest Hockey School and PacWest AAA Spring Hockey Teams from 2001 to 2009. Gary has been part of the Spokane Chiefs main camp for eight years and has also been a guest coach at many camps and showcases throughout his time coaching.

Gary has been recognized as Coach of the Year by the KIJHL in both 2014 and 2018 and by the Spokane American Youth Hockey Association in 2002 and 2006. He was also awarded the Avista Community MVP in 2012 for his work in hockey over the years.

Gary has always focused on player development and during his five years as head coach of the Braves, along with many player accomplishments within the league and on the team, he proudly helped move 5 players to the WHL, 11 to Canadian Jr. A, 2 to NCAA Division I, 7 to NCAA Division III, 6 to the BCIHL, and 3 to ACHA programs. 

Kurtis, a Spokane native, joins the Academy having just graduated from Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota. Kurtis played five years of junior hockey. He spent time with the Spokane Braves of the KIJHL, where he was team captain, and also with the Battleford North Stars of the SJHL. After juniors, Kurtis played for the NCAA Division III, Bethel Royals. Kurtis’ work ethic, skill, and toughness were well known throughout his time playing hockey.

During his time at Bethel, Kurtis was a Dean’s List student and as a senior, he was one of only a few students to be given a position as Research Analyst for the Royals Investment Fund, LLC.  Kurtis recently received his BA in Business Finance.

Kurtis was recipient of the Matt Beamer Memorial Award in 2006 while playing youth hockey. He was named Player of the Year for 2016 in juniors and while in college he was recognized for his success both on and off the ice by the American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) as an AHCA All-American Scholar.
