dallas kipfer

Owner, Lead Instructor


My name is Dallas Kipfer, I was a member of the U18 & U23 Mens National Team, and to say developing athletes is my passion is an understatement. At 24 years old, I have travelled the world and experienced every feeling you could, and I use these experiences along with in depth knowledge to help give my athletes all the tools they need to be the best version of themselves. In my 6th year of being a skills development coach, I can adapt to each athlete in how they learn the best. Teaching athletes and coaches about the process while tracking their progress is a major aspect in my philosophy.

My name is Taz Bacchus, I played 11 years with the  Brampton Blazers. While playing with the Blazers I earned countless MVP’s including Top Player of Ontario 3x.

In the 2023 Intermediate Women’s Eastern Canadians my team won bronze. I currently play for the University of Waterloo and have played there for two seasons.
