Mackenzie King

Program Coordinator – intern

E: mackenzie@coachnb.ca

Mackenzie is from Burtt’s Corner, New Brunswick. Growing up he had a passion for hockey and became as involved with the sport as he could. He started playing at five, referring at twelve, and coaching at fifteen. This year he plans to continue to play, referee, and coach hockey while completing the internship program at UNB. This allows him to complete his Bachelor of Sport and Recreation Degree with a minor in English while gaining experience with Coach NB.

Growing up and coaching in a small town taught Mackenzie to believe that being a coach is more than planning practices and preparing for games. As a coach, you have the chance to leave a positive impact and create memories with someone that will last for a lifetime. In a small community, you are able to build relationships differently because you will likely know a lot about your players before the season starts. Such as their parents’ names, where they’re from, and what they do for work. A small town team is one big family.
