Guy Gronberg - March Coach of the Month



Years Coaching:

Current team:

Cambridge, MN


KC Jr. Mavs Bantam House Team

KC Jr. Mavs Bantam Select Team



Chosen Attribute – Teamwork:

 I find that young people today are so concerned about ‘self’. To be able to help them understand what it is to sacrifice for the team, to put ‘self’ aside and put the ‘team’ first. To establish the concept of teamwork vs. selfishness is a huge obstacle and one that transfers over into the locker room and onto the ice. To be able to instill the concept of teamwork into them is a great accomplishment that (hopefully) they can use the rest of their lives.

Why is this attribute important to you?

Because Christ sacrificed so much for me!

What is your favorite scripture verse? Why is this important to you?

Psalm 118:24 – This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it! 

As I tell my players (as well as my own kids) everyday you have a choice, be happy/be sad, glass half empty/glass half full. (at the younger ages I tell them they can be E’ore or they can be Tigger) I believe that life is not about what happens to you, it is how you react to what happens to you!

Who is your favorite coach outside of hockey? Why?

Dave Johnson – Elementary Football Coach, Cambridge, MN – first coach to believe in me, give me a chance, inspire me!

What is your dream coaching job (if different than your current position)?

A team of orphans… parents! All kidding aside…..I am in my dream coaching job. Making an impact on kid’s lives on a daily basis right here where I live and work.

Tell us about your coaching philosophy. Why do you coach? How does your faith play into your coaching? What ways are you able to make an impact for Jesus at the ice rink?

I coach to make a difference. I am helping to mold boys in to young men. (If they learn a little bit of hockey along the way that is a bonus!) I am instilling concepts into kids that they can carry on for a lifetime. All these concepts are rooted in the Bible and I look for opportunities to share that (& Jesus!) with the player and/or their parents. Coaching is a way to give back for all the coaches I had growing up that made an impact on me. It is a natural progression. Something that brings a smile to my face is when a young adult (20+ years old) stops me and says “Hi Coach” and we have the opportunity to catch up on where life has taken them.

Tell us a little bit about yourself:

I am married (26 years!) to my High School Sweetheart, Diana. We have four kids: Gavin (Senior‐18), Grace (Junior‐16), Glori (eighth‐14), and Gage (seventh‐13). I grew up in Cambridge, MN, went to school at Iowa State University in Ames, moved to KC right out of college and have been here for 29+ years. I have been self employed as an Architect for the last 17 years. (  Remember – This is the day the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it!

I've been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any
interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good
content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
