Varsity Head Coach
My wife Amy and I moved to the Rosemount area a little over 7 years ago and have three very energetic boys; Ethan (12), Noah (9), and Henry (5). I grew up playing my youth and high school hockey in Blaine, MN. During my Junior year season we won the Minnesota State High School Hockey Title in 2000. Following high school, I was fortunate enough to play four years at Bethel University, and was elected captain my senior year. After my playing days, I stayed involved by coaching College, High School, and youth hockey here in Rosemount. I am excited to help kids of all ages develop into the best players and people possible year round.
Rick Saintey and his wife (Sue) moved to Rosemount many years ago in which he started all three of his boys in hockey; Ricky, Brian and James. Rick has been involved in the game of hockey for many years but 34 years of which have been in Rosemount. Rick has coached at all levels from High School to Mini-mites. Rick enjoys making kids better hockey players and better people. Rick loves the company of his 5 grand kids; Owen (11), Addisen (8), Rylen (7), Duncan (6) and Rocco (4).
