In just two seasons, Jon Sheridan has made a big impact on ice hockey in Athens. On March 29, Jon leaves Athens to assume a new position, as Associate Head Coach of the NCAA Division 3 ice hockey program at Lawrence University in Appleton, WI, where he played during his college years. We'll miss him here in Athens, but we wish him all the best in the next stage of what promises to be a stellar coaching career.
During the 12-13 season, while serving as Assistant Coach for the Ohio University ACHA D1 team, Jon also began helping with youth instruction in Athens, including the Learn to Play Hockey program and individual hockey lessons at Bird Arena. For 13-14, Jon became both the Head Coach for Ohio University, and the Association Coaching Education coordinator for AYHA. Jon was a great asset to the board, helping board members better understand the needs and challenges of our coaches. He brought a fresh perspective, apparently boundless patience, and a willingness to help everyone do the best we could for the kids playing hockey. We've been fortunate to have him here; Appleton will be fortunate to have him next.
