The Airdrie Cochrane Athletic Association (ACAA) is excited to introduce the Head Coaches who will be leading our teams for the 2019-2020 season:
Tyson Soloski - Airdrie Xtreme, AAA Bantam
This will be Tyson’s first year with the Xtreme. He has been involved in hockey as long as he can remember, first as a player and then as a coach. He was an Assistant Coach position at the Midget AA level, and spent 2 years as the Bantam AA Head Coach for the Bow Valley Timberwolves. He then became Head Coach of the Midget AA Timberwolves, winning the North Division Championship. Last season Tyson was an Assistant Coach with the AC Avalanche. He was also involved with Hockey Alberta’s Peewee Prospects Cup as an Assistant Coach, which he feels truly showed him how to be an elite level coach.

His playing experience includes a CIS Championship with the University of Alberta Golden Bears, playing for them for 3 years while also earning a degree in Engineering. Terry also won a WHL League Championship with the Victoria Cougars, and participated in the 1980-81 Memorial Cup.
