Assistant Coaches

Marcus Olsen of the Port Moody Panthers is an enthusiastic & dynamic defenseman. Previously, Olsen played for OHA PENTICTON U17 PREP and prior to that the Valley West Giants U16 AAA team. Marcus demonstrates a love for the game that is evident every time he is on the ice. While coaching Elite’s Edge, Power & Stride, Tykes Hockey, Specialized Hockey Development, and Learn to Skate, Marcus is eager to share his passion and knowledge of the game with all students.

Michael Farren brings a fun loving energy, purposive work ethic and endless laughter to the Elite Team. Michael currently plays for the Swift Current Broncos of the WHL. Prior to the Broncos, Michael was a dominant Center on the Kelowna Rockets (WHL), the Saskatoon Blades (WHL) & the Valley West Hawks (U18 AAA). On every team Michael has been a leader on & off the ice, demonstrating his natural ability to coach.

Michael’s experience playing high level hockey, hunger to always improve his own game and passion for hockey make him a great addition that the Elite Team is thrilled to have.

Bobby Russell is currently playing with the Ontario Reign (AHL) after four successful seasons competing in the WHL. Elite had the pleasure of welcoming Bobby during the Summer 2021 season and he quickly became an asset to the Elite Team. Russell is known as a puck-moving defenseman and brings great perspective based in his high-level experience. In his own development, Bobby concentrates on consistent skating drills, watching video and practicing stick-positioning.
