Midget AA - Darrell Husk


Midget AA Players and Parents,


My name is Darrell Husk and I am again excited to be coaching the Midget AA team in Waterloo. I will commit to the team in every way and I am looking for players that understand the commitment that goes with playing at the elite level that MAA is and equally understand the importance of being a great teammate. You must show up at the rink willing to work hard and wanting to improve every time you hit the ice.


At the MAA level, it will my intention to offer as much exposure and opportunity for those wanting to further their hockey goals. As coaches and teammates, we will equally respect that some of our teammates may have a different plan for their future but love the elite level of competition, the atmosphere and camaraderie of MAA hockey. Regardless of the motivation all players must agree to a commitment, team first attitude and have immense respect their coaches and teammates. Our “team code” will be discussed and help guide us in creating the TEAM CULTURE that will make us successful in competition, develop better as players and guarantee a fun, enjoyable season for all, ultimately our goal.


I look forward to another season of MAA hockey, leading, teaching and challenging these incredible athletes to be better as players, individuals and even better as a team. The inception of our HPTP (high performance training program) will be exciting for our players and coaches as guidance and development opportunities from experts in their field will be an integral part of the season plan.


IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO TRY-OUT FOR THE TEAM, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!  Information such as preferred position F or D (comfortable with both), shooting hand, hometown and current team and playing level should be included among anything else you would like to add. I will be looking at players up until our tryouts begin and would welcome the opportunity to see you play and possibly meet prior to tryouts.


Players or Parents, email me at [email protected] or call/text 519-778-0788.

Coach, Waterloo Ravens Midget AA



Bantam AA - David Morrow


My name is David Morrow and I am very excited to be the 2019 – 2020 Waterloo Ravens Bantam AA Head Coach. Although this season is not over, plans for next year are underway and the coaching staff and I are excited about building a highly competitive team within our new High Performance Training Program (HPTP).

I have 30 years of coaching experience in both boys and girls hockey and I am HP1 Certified. For approximately the past 14 years I have been involved with the Waterloo Girls Minor Hockey Association as a parent, member of the Board, assistant coach and head coach at both the AA and A levels. I am passionate about the sport and I am committed to help players to develop to their fullest potential on and off of the ice.


As a coach I set high standards for myself and I expect the same of my bench staff. My bench and goaltending coaching staff for the 2019 – 2020 season will be announced shortly.  Jory Elliott is leading the HPTP goaltending program and will be on ice with all teams including ours at times and will help guide our goaltending training in all aspects - Jory is presently the Assistant Coach and Goalie Coach with the University of Waterloo’s Women’s Varsity Hockey Team.
