Hockey Director Mario Morrissette comes with an extensive resume to accompany his awesome personality.  Mario was born in Montreal, where he lived and played hockey until relocating to Northern California several years ago.

Morrissette has played a major role in the recent success of the California Cougars Tier Hockey.  In 2002-03, his Cougars won the Midget Tier I Championship in the Southwest Youth Hockey League.  In 2004-05, his Tier II Midget 16AA squad advanced to the Finals of the California Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) Tier I and Tier II State Championships.

Morrissette also doubles as Head Coach for the Cougars Bantam A program.  Under his direction, the Cougars have won two of the last three state championships.  During the 2006-07 season his Tier II Midget 16AA team finished 1st overall in the Dallas MLK Tournament and the Colorado Springs Presidents Day Festival.

In recent years Coach Mario has had players advance to the USA Hockey National Select Festival.  However the true measure of Morrissette's success with the Cougars Hockey is the number of players having advanced to Junior or Collegiate hockey.  His recent accomplishments have been to establish an ongoing partnership with several East Coast Junior programs and a Massachusetts College where the Cougars can advance and place players in the next level of their ice hockey careers.

Coach Mario can be contacted at 650-574-1616 or Mario.Morrissette@californiacougars.org.
