Name: Bryce West
Date of Birth: 17/05/1988
I started playing hockey when I was about 5 or 6 years old. I used to play with my older brother and his mates and have loved the game ever since. Playing wise, I did play in my schools 1st team as well as my clubs 1st team. I made the WPCD and SACD side in 2012. Our SACD team won the Men's IPT B section which was amazing. I started coaching 1st year out of high school for extra pocket money while studying, and it started to become a passion more than a side 'job'. I have now been coaching for over 10 years at some incredible schools along the way. I have been very fortunate in the opportunities that have come my way. I have been to around 10 IPT's as part of a coaching staff, and was part of teams that won Gold medals at the tournament. As head coach, I have been to 2 IPTs, guiding the WP U16 Pens team to Gold in the IPT B section, and the following year making the semi-finals in the A section with the Pens side again.
I am the General Manager of PRINCESS Hockey SA, and I coach at Fairmont HS, Wynberg Boys HS and Bellville Hockey Club.

I have had so many different highlights, but one that is recent is helping my incredible WP U16 B side against all odds to a semi-final at the 2019 IPT A section.
Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight
