Ben Townsend, Chiropractor
Ben has been involved in hockey one way or another for 22 years. First as a player, then as a coach. He played on various A and AA teams throughout his career, being the captain on 3 separate teams. He has also coached at almost every level including one year of each Atom, Peewee, and Midget, 3 years at a college in the states, and most recently the Eastman girl's team at the Manitoba Winter Games. Ben also coached the Southeast Blizzard for two seasons, winning the championship, and now currently coaches the AAA Eastman City Selects. Not only will he use his playing and coaching knowledge of every age group to teach very fine technique skills, but also his background as a Chiropractor to teach the proper muscular side of it as well.
