Ironbound Elite is excited to announce that professional skills coach, Frankie Loftus, will be staying on for the 2021/22 season.

Frankie is a specialist skills coach with over 10 years of experience working with Olympians, USHL, Prep School, NCAA D1, and professional hockey players. He specializes in overspeed training and creativity.

Frankie is arguably one of the best skills coaches in the area and has trained the nation’s top prospects: Nikita Nasterenko, Amanda Kessel, Matt Brown, Drew O’Connor, Alex Rauter, Chris Carlisle, Ryan Fine, Cole Maier, Aram Minentian, and Brandon Crawley, to name a few.

This will be Frankie’s third season working with our organization and we are proud to be an organization that places individual skill development as a priority.

Hockey Director Sam Cheema says, “Frankie is the best of the best. I have the privilege to work alongside him every day and we work very well. Together we are teaching the Ironbound group the same skill concepts we teach to the NCAA D1, NHL, ECHL, AHL, USHL players. The individual confidence in each player’s ability is noticeable.”
