Chris Costa

Chris Costa has participated in hockey as a coach, player, and official for over 22 years. Growing up, he found a passion for sports through baseball, soccer, and hockey.

He specializes in hockey training, both on and off the ice.

While Chris primarily works with hockey players and golfers, he openly works with all athletes. In 2013, he worked as an intern with the Philadelphia Flyers organization. He's currently pursuing his Master's degree in Human Performance. Chris is the owner of Assist Performance, a website dedicated to developing elite athletes.
