Pittsburgh Viper Hockey is please to announce the addition of Si Bishop as Developmental Coordinator for the 2015-2016 season.
As Developmental Coordinator, Si will work with the organization's Head of Coaches, Tim Kingerski, and Tier I Coordinator, Dave Kosick, and will assist Viper coaches in improving practice sessions, consult on off-ice training, direct camps/clinics, and work with players, at a coach's request, on the ice during team practices.
In addition, Si will be responsible for helping coordinating a skills development curriculum. This effort will range from ADM program members through the U18 level. Si will start with the skills taught through USA Hockey’s ADM program to our youngest players and build a curriculum from that level through to the U18 level … making sure the coaches at each level know what skills they are responsible to develop. The skills curriculum will be formed with the help of Vipers coaches at each level as they work with SI to determine what is appropriate through a series of informal discussions/meetings.
Si brings an outstanding resume to this newly created position. His understanding of the game has been honed by his years of playing Tier I hockey for the Viper Stars, Duquesne University, and in the CHL. He has served as a coach with the Esmark Stars / Pittsburgh Viper Stars for the past five seasons and spent one season previous to that as a coach with the Pittsburgh Penguins Elite Girls Program. In addition, he has offered training and instruction on hockey through Bad Boy Hockey, Inc., Peak Performance Hockey, and through private lessons. He has also conducted several hockey camps and clinics, including participating as an instructor in camps operated by both Yuri Krivokhija and Alain Lemieux.
The NHAHA Board is looking forward to enjoying the increased enthusiasm, energy and expertise Si will be bringing to all of our programs during the coming season. We feel that this unique position will enhance all of our programs and benefit every one of our players.
