Cavanagh currently coaches three different teams in the Crowfoot Coyotes Minor Hockey Association; Peewee 4 Black, Minor Novice 3 and Jr. Timbits 2.
He’s been coaching for 7 years, and is also a Head Coach with Northwest Little League Baseball.
"I most enjoy seeing kids develop their skills as players and people," said Cavanagh. "Coaching provides an opportunity to pass on a love for the game. I also enjoy working with the other coaches to help athletes realize their potential. My coaching philosophy is to promote an atmosphere of hard work, respect for others, team play and fun. When we achieve that, success can come in many ways."
"Dan is a phenomenal coach who is knowledgeable, level-headed and inclusive," said one of Dan’s fellow coaches, who nominated him for the award. "He coaches or assistant coaches in three different levels of hockey for Crowfoot! I have coached with him for three years and he rarely misses an event. Dan Cavanagh is an asset to the Crowfoot Hockey organization!"
