Brock McBride, President
As I grew up in the Cornwall area many people were there to point me in the right direction both in developing my hockey skills and dedicating myself to something. It is this guidance that I am forever grateful for and would now like to give back to our community. It is no secret that Cornwall and its surrounding area is hockey crazy and has many of its youth putting skates on and taking their first strides every year. At Own The Ice Hockey we would like to have the opportunity to work with our talented youth and give them an opportunity to excel at the game we all love."

Jeff Carter, Director
My passion for sport and the game of Hockey comes from my father who played professional Hockey for the Montreal Canadiens organization for many years .We grew up breathing and sleeping hockey and sports from a very young age, and the philosophy from day one was to improve your skills and work at your game. We spent many hours practicing ,shooting pucks, and workouts in the basement gym. The passion and work ethic that it takes to be successful and improve your game never stops. I was fortunate to get the opportunity to play Junior A hockey and later go on to graduate from Acadia University and play varsity hockey for the Axemen.
The next four years were spent working full time for Huron Hockey School in a program Coordinator and instructional role managing thirty locations across North America.
Own the Ice Hockey's goal is to develop programs that will give aspiring athletes an opportunity to develop their skills in our state of the art facility with professional instruction and a learning environment. We will thrive to deliver quality programs to all athletes ,from the beginner to the player aspiring to get to the next level.
