Brian Hurcombe, Varsity Head Coach
Coach Hurcombe will enjoy continuing his hockey coaching career, now as Head Boys Varsity coach, at Scituate High School for the 2018-19 winter season. Coaching has afforded him the opportunity to strengthen relationships and work with students he does not teach in regular physical education classes. He feels that his advanced knowledge of the game and coaching acquired by playing Collegiate Ice Hockey for 4 years, obtaining a Master degree in exercise science, training athletes, and previous coaching experience in hockey, golf and basketball enables him to create a focused and positive learning environment for players. His understanding of multiple systems of offensive fore checking and defensive zone strategies, power play and penalty kill systems, and on and off ice practice philosophies will benefit all players in the Scituate program.
