January Student Athletes of the Month

great job Connor and Addison!

Congrats and keep up the great work Connor and Addie!
Both of our athletes overcame hurdles but ended the semester with top grades and improvements across all classes. Addison's concussion and Connor's constant travel weekends had both struggling to keep pace, but they rallied and finished strong,  and make us proud as January's Student Athletes of the Month.

Welcome Back Coach Gary and Coach Kurtis

We are excited that Gary Redding will return as our Midget Varsity Head Coach.  Coach Gary is looking forward to bringing the varsity boys to the top of their CSSHL division this year, following his inaugural season last year.

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. 

Coach Kurtis, a Spokane native, returns to lead our girls varsity Academy again this season. Kurtis came to us last year after 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.


Thank You!

On behalf of all of our student athletes and our CdAA staff, a huge THANK YOU to all of our generous friends and families who donated to our SnapRaise fundraiser. We couldn't do all of this without your support!!
