The Pacific Ridge Hockey Club (PRHC), formally Carlsbad United, enters its second year in the Anaheim Ducks High School Hockey League (ADHSHL) with two teams, Varsity and Junior Varsity, and a separate-but-connected developmental team for middle school student-athletes. Pacific Ridge School sponsors the high school teams and has several full-time students-athletes playing. At present, the PRHC is a “blended team” comprising players from Pacific Ridge School and the Oceanside, Carlsbad, San Marcos, and San Dieguito school districts.
This year the hockey coaching staff will be headed up by Juan Trevino, Hans Richter, Mike Mattison, and Todd Cadieux. In addition to these coaches, Blake Whitcomb is the strength and conditioning coach, and together they bring over 75 years of coaching experience to the program. Coaches Trevino, Richter, and Whitcomb are full-time educators at Pacific Ridge School.
The team plays half of its games at the Icetown Rink in Carlsbad (also the practice location), and all strength and conditioning workouts take place at Pacific Ridge School. Games are generally on weekends, and practices usually end by 5:30 PM so our student-athletes have time to complete homework and spend quality time with family and friends. Balance is one of our highest goals.
