Team Maryland is proud to announce Chris Ceransky as the Head Coach of the Midget U16 team.
Chris returns for his second season with TM. Last season, he guided the U18's to a PVAHA Championship and a birth in USA Hockey Southeast District Championship. He also led the U18's to the championship game in the Atlantic Youth Hockey League (AYHL) Finals.
Prior to joining TM, Chris served three years in the North American Hockey League as an Assistant Coach for the Wichita Falls Wildcats (Wichita Falls, TX) and then the Coulee Region Chill (La Crosse, WI). During his time in the NAHL, Ceransky established himself in the elite ranks of player development. In just three years, 34 of his players have or will shortly make the jump to Division I hockey, including five of his six goaltender, and worked his way into the 100 win club. Ceransky has also trained six players selected to their respective National teams. He continues to independently scout for teams in the NAHL & USHL.
Before his time in the NAHL, Ceransky spent eight years as a coach and Midget Director with the New Jersey Renegades youth hockey club. Ceransky was instrumental in founding the organization’s junior team to compete in the Metropolitan Junior Hockey League (Tier III), spending five years as the Renegades’ head coach and assistant general manager. Ceransky was also named the Hockey Director for Next Level hockey, an hockey specific training facility, before leaving for Wichita Falls.
TM looks forward to having Coach Chris work with the U16's and helping them develop to the next level.
