Mathieu started coaching girls’ hockey during the 2016 season and was an Assistant Coach with the EO Stars U15 AA team during the 2022-2023 season. Mathieu has also coached at various hockey schools in the Ottawa area.
My coaching philosophy for the EO Stars U15 AA team will be to have a strong focus on player development with and without the puck. There will be an increasing amount of time spent on team positional and tactical plays. However, the development of individual skills remains a priority. Puck possession is an important concept for me, and the hope is for my team is to be known as skilled, structured, and fast paced team who are hard to play against. A long-term goal would be to develop each player so that they can have a chance at advancing to higher levels in future years.
