Rivermen add coach to roster

The Langley Rivermen have added Sean Heales as the team’s mental performance coach.

“He brings in not only outstanding credentials, but a hockey background as well,” said Rivermen head coach and general manager Steve O’Rourke.

“The mental side of hockey is so crucial for success not only for the individual player, but overall team success, and we believe Sean can help with that side of the game, with moving our team forward.”

Heales has a masters degree in clinical counselling from the Adler School of Psychology. He runs his own private practice, Logan Creek Counselling and Consulting, and has coached at the initiation level with the Langley Minor Hockey Association.

He has worked with hockey players of all levels and will help the junior A Rivermen in such areas as dealing with performance pressure, goal-setting, overcoming injury as well as life issues.
