Meet The Airdrie Stars Coaching Staff

Aug. 21, 2020

The Airdrie Stars Hockey Academy is extremely excited to announce the appointment of Tyler Waycott as the Academies' Technical Director. Coach Tyler will remain as head coach for the U-13 Varsity team, now every player, coach & parent will have a solid resource to help get your player to the next level.

Tyler has hockey playing experience at the Junior level in BC and Manitoba. His love for the game has kept him active in coaching, scouting & mentoring for the past 15 years. 

 Lacrosse was another love of Tyler's playing Junior A growing up as a young man in British Columbia. Once moving to Airdrie in 2012 to raise his family, Tyler quickly resumed coaching and soon after he took the head coach role with the RockyView Silvertips Junior B/Tier 1 Team in 2018. Finishing 3rd place in the RMLL Central Division that season, he secured the Silvertips a playoff spot for the first time in over a decade.

 Tyler prides himself on being a student of the game, passing along his knowledge by mentoring and coaching many local youth hockey players for the love of the sport. You will often find many other coaches and parents in local arena lobbies trying to catch Tyler's ear for a conversation.


This will be Tyler's 3rd year with the Academy. Great to keep working with you Coach!
