Meet Coach Grant (AKA Siki), an experienced hockey coach with a passion for developing young talent. Born and raised in California, Grant grew up playing elite-level hockey and has since gone on to make a name for himself in the world of coaching.

From a young age, Grant showed a natural talent for the sport, quickly rising through the ranks to play at the highest levels. He played on various youth hockey teams, including the LA Jr Kings, where he honed his skills and developed a deep love for the game.

After playing at the youth level, Grant went on to play prep school hockey at Tilton School & Brewster Academy, where he continued to excel on the ice. His strong work ethic, leadership skills, and dedication to the sport quickly caught the attention of coaches and scouts alike.

Following his successful stint in prep school, Grant played junior hockey with the Jr. Monarchs, where he continued to impress and showcase his skills. He was known for his speed, agility, and physical play, which allowed him to make big plays on the ice and help his team win games.

After his playing career ended, Grant knew he wanted to give back to the sport that had given him so much. He began coaching youth hockey teams and quickly found a passion for helping young players develop their skills and reach their full potential.

Today, Coach Siki brings his years of experience and expertise to the NH Selects, where he serves as a mentor and coach to all players.

John considers himself lucky to have been part of a program that gave him training and coaching education by Coaches who are currently in the NHL, as well as International Power Skating Instructors and fellow Coaches whom I am honored to say I worked with. John’s experience has allowed him to pass on his knowledge to his players through personal on ice training sessions, group skills and power skating camps. Robby Glantz, Power Skating Coach and On-Air Skills and Skating Consultant for the NHL Network stated, “Speed is a skill that can be developed and enhanced with proper technique and practice... With that said, I highly recommend John Sikich, who has Instructed at many of my camps throughout the last 18+ years...He consistently does an excellent job teaching all ages and skill levels and I am more than confident that he has the experience, knowledge and ability to positively impact your player’s Hockey and Skating abilities!!”
