Hockey – Boys (Bigside)

Trinity College School’s boys hockey program includes two teams. The Varsity team, or Bigside, is typically made up of older and more experienced players. Our Junior team, or Littleside, is a springboard to playing at the Bigside level and is limited to Grade 9 and 10 students.

Competition

The training season starts in early September for both teams, while competition normally runs from October to March Break. Our teams play in the Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association (CISAA), a league made up of independent schools from across Ontario. The 2018-2019 season will see both teams return to Division I after a 14-year hiatus (having played in Division II). They will play a 10-12 game regular season schedule, plus playoffs. We supplement the league schedule with exhibition games as well as four or five tournaments, for a total of 40-50 games each season for the Bigside team, and 30-35 games for the Littleside team.

Development

  • Between games, practices and off-ice sessions, the teams are together at least five times per week – typically on the ice four times. This provides an ideal ratio of two practices to every game day. In total, the Bigside team is on the ice over 100 times during the season, beginning in early September with advanced skills sessions.
  • Dedicated skating sessions take place throughout the season.
  • Off-ice training programs are designed to develop strength, conditioning and, most importantly, overall athletic ability.
  • A built-in video system in our rink is used for honing team systems and tactics.
  • Individual player goal-setting is a priority.
  • Individual support for players interested in pursuing hockey after TCS is provided.
  • Dedicated goalie sessions with a goalie coach are provided.

Bigside Hockey (Varsity) Coaches

Rick Traugott, Head Coach
Coach Traugott is a lifelong coach who has been working with young athletes in many sports for the past 38 years. Since the 2010-2011 season, Coach Traugott has been working with Canada's National Women’s Team hockey program, serving in a number of roles including camp coach with the Under-18 and development teams, and video coach with both the U-18 and the National Women's Team. Mr. Traugott was a member of the staff who won a gold medal with the U-18 team at the IIHF World Championship in Budapest, Hungary, in 2014, and medals at world championships in Sweden, Kazakhstan and Russia at the national U-18, university and senior level.

Coach Traugott’s résumé includes coaching the Varsity boys and girls programs at Trinity College School, the Ryerson University men’s team, Wexford Raiders Tier 2 Junior A, Wexford Raiders Minor Bantam and Midget AAA, as well as the Brampton Thunder of the CWHL. This past season he served as video coach for the National Women’s U-18 Team that won a bronze medal at the IIHF World Championship in Dmitrov, Russia. A former player with the University of Toronto Varsity Blues, Mr. Traugott is also an NCCP Level 3 certified hockey coach.

Facilities

We are very fortunate to have our own arena on campus. The Peter Campbell Memorial Rink provides us ample ice time to support four teams and the Bigside (Varsity) and Littleside (Junior Varsity) team have a dedicated dressing room with individual compartments (“stalls”) for players to store equipment for the season. The rink is often available during the day, after school and on weekends for informal practice and shinny sessions.

TCS’s athletic facilities also include eight full-size multi-purpose fields for football, soccer, rugby, cricket and field hockey, an indoor pool and a 5km cross-country running course that hosted the 2002 and 2017 Ontario high school championships. Our new athletic centre (2017) includes such facilities as a resistance and cardio training room, three new gymnasiums (for a total of five) and two new squash courts (for a total of five), in addition to classroom, changeroom and office space. There is ample opportunity for our hockey players to train both in and out of season. TCS also has a new, state-of-the-art physiotherapy clinic on campus, staffed full time by two certified athletic therapists.

Athletes

Our coaching staff works diligently to identify student-athletes who we feel will fit into our school program. Above all, we look for hockey players who are strong academically and can handle the rigours of a full hockey schedule and a complete academic program. We also believe that good hockey players are born from good athletes – athletes who can excel in different sports – and all of our players are expected to be contributors on spring teams.
