Coaching and Sport Experience Bio

 

  • I have been the head coach for the local track and field team where I have coached athletes to become BC and National Champions. I have a world-class mindset where I teach the only thing holding athletes back are the limits they put on themselves. I do not accept can’t as truth.
  • I have coached all the events, but spent most my time with middle distant & cross-country, Sprints and Javelin. I am familiar with all the events though
  • Had 2 athletes get full ride scholarships in the states.
  • I have my BCRPA.
  • Strength Training Certificate. Check my certificates here
  • I teach a Yin Yoga class and want to expand and teach athletes and teams the one aspect of fitness that isn’t utilized like it should. Hence, Yin Yoga for Sports. With my knowledge and experience with sports, I will bring this aspect in to the classes.
  • In 2014 Brendan Hoff was invited to the Canadian Sports Institute, (csipacific.ca) which is a training facility for potential future Olympians.
  • To better understand running technique and fitness and the process of training, I competed at the Nationals at 47 where I came second in the 100 and 200. I ran the 400 and 800 also at 56 and 2:12 at age 40.
  • I excel at correct running form, working the energy systems proper so athletes in middle distance peak at the right time, I bring the best out of athletes, communicating well and much more.
  • I always keep an open mind and am constantly learning from self study and reading.
  • I understand the safety and form used for plyometrics and strength training – If I don’t I will learn or teach myself.
  • With hockey, a National Fast Ball Pitcher, and track and field, I understand group effort and individual efforts to reach ones full potential.
  • In Campbell River, we were the first Midget Rep team to win an Island Championship and advance to the BC Championships with a Third place finish. I was Goalie Coach/Assistant Coach/conditioning coach. I used my knowledge as a track coach to make the dry land conditioning and hockey practices work by playing with the energy systems so we would have the best-conditioned kids that year

Coached Rep Hockey 2006 to 2009

Sport Background 6 years old to present

  • I have accolades when I pitched fastball until I was 19 with best pitcher in BC and Canada. I was on my way playing Senior A fastball. I got rookie of the year playing Junior A Fastball at 19.
  • I understand the life side of sports more now and fitness through personal experience, education  and coaching athletes
  • At age 19 taking up Goal Tending in hockey was offered to play junior hockey just 2 years later, but turned it down due to work and wanting to get married and settle down. If I took it, my goal would have been to make it to the NHL, then win the cup. That is just the way I was and am still to this day.
  • Played a lot of hockey as a goalie in my 20s and 30s to better understand the game and goaltending. I came to many revelations that I use to help my athletes today withstand the pressures of sport. Many semi pro and junior players could not believe I started at 19 playing against me.
  • At age 50 I am still fit and live a healthy life style.
  • Currently I am participating in Thia Kick Boxing and BJJ to help with my patent pending fight elite invention
  • I did a little boxing in my 30s to understand this. I got very good at that.
  • I do not claim I know everything – but always keep an open mind. In my life, sport has been a learning experience and continues to be with self study and coaching.
  • All 3 of my girls are and have finished University. One had a full ride scholarship with track.
