Aaron Hoffman is a hockey junkie and he's not about to seek any counselling.Instead, he is adding more sticks and pucks to his habit.
The 31-year-old fitness fanatic has been named the lead instructor in the Hockey Canada Skills Camp, an academy offered at Vernon Secondary School.
Entering his second year as the volunteer head coach for North Okanagan Minor Hockey Association, Hoffman relates well to young players, often leading by example.
We are thrilled and very lucky to have Aaron in our community, working with our kids."
Davies said Hoffman has been seen jumping on a picnic table from a standing position or with skates on, leaping over a garbage can.
"I tell the kids that push-ups are used as a reward and not a punishment," said Hoffman.
Hoffman, who took figure skating early in his minor career, returned from Europe to learn that his wife Kara had signed the couple up for the Penticton Ironman.
"We did the Ironman for our honeymoon a week after we got married," he laughed.
He earned his education degree at UBC and then obtained his Masters through Gonzaga in Spokane.He wrote his thesis on the integration of hockey at VSS, presenting his findings to Hockey Canada.He wrote about the motivation and academic achievement created through the academy.
"I learned 15 minutes from the end of the school year that I got the job at VSS," said Hoffman, who has taught at BX Elementary the past five years.
There will be up to 28 student-athletes in the hockey academy which caters to both Rep and House calibre players.
There are on- and off-ice instruction along with coaching and refereeing certification offered.As the safety director for B.C. Amateur, Hoffman will also deal with issues like injury prevention.
Hoffman will be assisted at VSS by teachers Mike Sawka and Germano Brunello and personal trainer J.C. Colvin.
