CJ Pobur
Rockford Varsity Hockey- Head Coach 

Coaching Bio

"I have a great deal of passion for teaching the game that has given me so much for so many years.  For all of my players, I try to focus on speed, motion, intensity, and a constant elevation of our potential.  Hockey has given me countless opportunities in life and I am excited to continue the journey with Rockford Varsity Hockey, Rams Hockey Association, and the MDHL. Our focus will be on continued individual skill development, playing with constant support, and buy in to team play. The implementation of our team philosophies will be centered around a team first mentality, teaching life lessons, and personal character development as young adults, students, athletes, and positive community members."
