Signing on as a team Trainer comes with a great deal of responsibility.  Signing on as a team Trainer without a child on the team and with limited hockey  experience…well, let’s just say that could be downright overwhelming but not for Tyler Hollenbeck.  When Hollenbeck first joined the Waterloo Wolves U13 Seeded team as Trainer in 2018, he immersed himself in the job and has never looked back.  He studied the on-ice logistics of the game but in his role as a Trainer, he knew his responsibilities had very little to do with actual X’s and O’s.  “Holls” as he is affectionately referred to by his players, maintains a strict focus on the health and safety of the players. 

“He isn't concerned with whether you are the most skilled player on the team…a player’s health and wellness are what means the most to him,” noted a team parent.

In 2019, Hollenbeck a Kinesiology graduate from the Wilfrid Laurier University, volunteered as Trainer with the U13 AAA Wolves team and also volunteered part-time with the U14 Seeded Wolves team to provide weekly off-ice programming. 

Much to the players' delight, Hollenbeck returned full-time to the U15 Seeded Wolves team during the unprecedented 2020-21 season.  “Holls once again stepped up ensuring that all COVID protocols were followed, he attended every practice and inter-squad game.  When a lot of people stepped away from the game this season, Holls was right there making sure that the kids could play in a safe environment,” said Team Manager Bill Gaul.

Thank you for your commitment and contributions to the game and c
