AC Avalanche welcome back Head Coach Terry Sydoryk

May. 27, 2019



Cochrane, Alberta, April 30th, 2018- The AC (Airdrie Cochrane) Avalanche Minor Midget AAA team are pleased to announce the appointment of Terry Sydoryk as Head Coach for the 2018-2019 season. Sydoryk comes to the team with 12 years of Bantam and Midget level coaching experience; his accolades include coaching the 2012-2013 AC Avalanche to a Sutter Cup Championship and a provincial silver medal.

 “I've coached a total of 6 years in the AMMHL league.  The league is unique in that it's a high caliber of hockey, where you have the athletes as a group for a single season.  As a coaching staff we'll be working to develop the entire roster and coaching to get the most out of each athlete along the way,” says Sydoryk.

 Sydoryk most recently coached team Calgary North at this past weekend’s ATB Alberta Cup in Spruce Grove, he has been an Alberta Cup coach consistently since 2015.

 Terry's hockey playing experience includes a CIS Championship with the U of A Golden Bears, where he played for 3 years while earning his Engineering Degree, and a WHL League Championship with the Victoria Cougars and participation in the Memorial Cup in 1980-81.

Cochrane is home to the AC Avalanche and the team is comprised of players from Airdrie, Cochrane and surrounding areas as outlined by a Hockey Alberta draw zone. “It's great to return. Cochrane is a fantastic hockey town and I have some great memories of the three years I coached here previously, including the league championship on 2012-13 and the athletes I had the privilege of working with during that time, says Sydoryk.
