We Are Alliance Champions!

As a coach of the Waterloo Wolves, I am incredibly proud of my team’s achievements this season. Winning the Alliance Championship is a testament to our players’ hard work, dedication, and ability to work through challenges. I am also proud of our performance in the OHL Cup, where we made it to the semi-finals, proving that we can compete at the highest levels. I truly believe that this year’s success is a result of our team’s commitment to each other and to our program. It’s an honour to coach such a talented and dedicated group of players, and I am excited to see what the future holds for the Waterloo Wolves. Once a wolf, always a wolf.

The Waterloo U16 players and coaches are wishing Brady Martin and fellow Alliance hockey players Ryan Roobroeck, Jack Nesbitt, and Parker Snelgrove, the very best of luck with Team Ontario in PEI.

Tyler Ertel’s extensive hockey experience and knowledge has proven to be highly effective in leading the Waterloo Wolves AAA U16 (Minor Midget) program. He has played in the OHL himself and produced two OHL players of his own (Justin & Jordyn Ertel), bringing a unique perspective that he can pass on to his players. His coaching abilities have been honed through years of working with athletes at all stages of development through his Holistic Hockey, guiding players and teams to success.

With the assistance of seasoned assistant coaches Mark Strohack, Robin Cumming, and newcomer coach Jacob Ertel, we have enjoyed a great deal of success. Our past season includes winning the Alliance Championship and achieving an impressive semi-final finish at the OHL Cup, which is one of the most prestigious minor hockey tournaments in Canada.

Our successful hockey program prioritizes the development of our players both on and off the ice. The team’s commitment to excellence has resulted in numerous achievements and accolades, making it a top choice for young players looking to take their hockey skills to the next level.
