In anticipation of our upcoming Global Skills Showcase, we welcome Danny Heath, renowned skills coach and Founder of Project Hockey, for episode #170 of the Glass and Out Podcast. In addition to Project Hockey, Heath is also the Skills Coach for the Minnesota State Mavericks, who just finished the college season as the #1 team in the country. Heath grew up in the Phoenix area and credits the arrival of the Coyotes for igniting his love for the game. As a player, he spent time in the USHL with the Tri-City Storm and Des Moines Buccaneers, before landing a scholarship at Minnesota State. After four seasons with the Mavericks, he retired from playing and decided to take on creating Project Hockey. Coming from the non-traditional hockey market of Arizona, he recognized motivated, passionate kids didn't have the resources or access to development programs in their part of the world. With Project Hockey, the app enables kids to train at home and get access to quality coaching, all at an affordable price. Find out how Project Hockey is providing kids with the ability to compete with their hockey playing peers from around the globe, how he balances his love of hockey with being a husband and school teacher, and what he's got planned for his Global Skills Showcase presentation on angling.
