Trevor Gardner

Born and raised in Markham, Trevor has been coaching elite hockey teams in the GTA for over 15 years. He has coached successful clubs at both the minor and junior levels as both an assistant and head coach. He has his Intermediate Coaching Certificate from Hockey Canada.

Trevor brings an extremely targeted and professional approach to the game on a daily basis and gradually gets more and more out of his players from workout to practice to game. His approach to the game gives players an early introduction to what is involved with being an elite hockey player at the junior, college and professional levels.

He started as an Assistant Coach with the Bramalea Blues Jr.A. team. He has coached there on two different occasions. Members of Gardner's Blues teams included notables Nathan Marsters (R.P.I.), Matt Craig (Yale), Andrew Martin (UMASS Lowell), John-Scott Dickson (Rochester Americans), Mike Nagi (Clarkson), Rob Kapuscinski (Brown), Jesse Adair (Buffalo State), Michael Vernace (Tampa Bay), Brett Robinson (Mercyhurst), Graham McNabb (UPEI), Sean Cryer (Neumann College), Matt Moulson (New York Islanders).

From Bramalea, Trevor moved on to the Vaughan organization coaching with both the Vaughan Kings AAA teams and the Vaughan Vipers Jr. A teams. Trevor coached the 2000-01 Kings Bantam AAA team which was a finalist at the Sudbury, and Sault Ste. Marie tournaments. The Jr. A. Vipers were the next stop for Gardner. During his time in Vaughan the Vipers made the playoffs each year and won the prestigious Newmarket Hurricane Showcase tournament in 2005. In his final year with Vaughan the Vipers finished the season with a 52 and 4 record. Members of Gardner's Vaughan teams include Mike Angeledis (Norfolk Admirals), Carlo DiRienzo (Kitchener Rangers), Paul Rodrigues (Oswego), Trevor Wadell (Plymouth Whalers), Danko Mironovic (Fort Wayne), Vince Bruni (Alabama-Huntsville), Brendan Sanders (Elmira), Nathaniel Brooks (York U.), Matt Martello (Lake Superior), Martin Lee (Elmira), Jake LaPlante (Peterborough), Victor Terreri (Barrie), Jamie Devane (Plymouth), Robyn Sertic (Erie), Anthony Metallo (U of T), Mark Cundari (Peoria), and Frankie DeAngelis (Fort Wayne).

Other stops along the way for Trevor include the 2002-03 Aurora Tigers Jr.A. team with current Niagara Ice Dogs coach Marty Williamson. The team finished with a 46 and 3 record. Notable members of that team include Matt Christie (Portland), Jordan Brenner (Waterloo), Rob Godfrey (Holy Cross), Steve Downie (Colorado Avalanche), Simon Barg (U of T), Jeff Gilbert (Robert Morris), Corey Gault (Peterborough), Brent Franklin (Holy Cross), Alex Eaton (Sudbury), and Chris Whitley (Lakehead).

Since moving to Barrie, Trevor has spent time behind the bench with the 2009-10 Barrie Colt Minor Bantam team which won a Bronze Medal at the OHMA Championships. That team included Chris Bigras (Owen Sound), and Zach Nastasiuk (Owen Sound). He has also helped out the Penetang Kings Jr.C. team with their playoff runs in the 2010-11, and 2011-12 playoff seasons.

Trevor continues his coaching tutelage under Hill Academy Hockey Director Lindsay Hofford whose experience includes head coaching stints of the Lethbridge Hurricanes (WHL) and the London Knights (OHL). Trevor also spends time on the ice with Greg Ireland, head coach of the Owen Sound Attack.

Trevor resides in Barrie with his wife Becky and son Drake. He owns and operates Shoot The Puck Hockey Training Centre.
