For the past four seasons Marc has been the head coach for the 2007 Major SPHA team and serves as the SPHA Program Director.
Marc was born and raised in Stony Plain with a family that has always been involved in hockey which led to his passion for the game and his desire to share that with the young athletes of today. He spent time both as a player and as a coach in the AJHL with the St. Albert Saints, which later led him to be a member of the Stony Plain Eagles Senior AAA team. His playing career culminated with an Allan Cup Championship while playing for the Eagles in 1999. During his playing career with the Eagles, Marc was also heavily involved in coaching in the Parkland County as his two sons were coming up through minor hockey. Marc then moved on to coach the Jr. B Stony Plain Flyers where he led the team to a number of successful seasons and turned the program into a very desired destination for many elite players looking to continue their careers.
