In episode 209 of the Glass and Out Podcast, we connect with Paul Dyck, Head Coach and General Manager of the MJHL’s Steinbach Pistons. The Pistons have been one of the most successful and consistent Junior A programs in Canada since Dyck stepped behind the bench part way through the 2012-2013 season.

A team’s transition from non-competitive to contender is often filled with bumps and roadblocks along the way. Dyck credits he and his coaching staff’s ability to keep their team accountable as an important factor in their sustained success.

He shares the story of a pivotal moment that featured the benching of three players during a critical time in the season due to a breach of curfew.

“Our guys battled and we won that game. It gave me so much more resolve going forward that, just do the right thing. If you talk about accountability, then you better follow through with it.”

Listen as he discuss why great coaches find reasons why a team CAN succeed, the role grit plays in winning Championships and why you need to appreciate feedback from your fans, even if they interrupt your breakfast.

I’m a husband, father, sports nut and Founder of The Coaches Site. I enjoy cooking, watching live music and hiking the North Shore mountains with my family. My son is a football player, which has turned me into a big football fan. It’s helped me appreciate what hockey parents go through, especially those who have little experience with the sport, when trying to navigate their child up the hockey ladder.
