Coach Arel Hockey

Developing tomorrow’s leaders on and off the ice.


My name is Dan Arel and I am a youth hockey coach and coaching educator. My main purpose on and off the ice is to create leaders. I work with players, coaches, and organizations to help improve their leadership and coaching skills.

“Dan’s insights are actionable and relate to the challenges coaches face on a daily basis. He comes from a place that is centered on providing young players the very best development opportunity.”
