Stan Weiss has been involved in hockey coaching and administration for over 25 years. He has coached Tier 1 (AAA) hockey for 8 years (in Toronto, Canada) where his Wexford Raiders teams won 17 of 23 major international tournaments including a world championship at the Novice (Mites) level. The team also earned the runner-up position to the Russian Red Army Elite team in a second world championship at the Minor Peewee level. Mr. Weiss coached his AAA teams to 4 Metro Toronto Hockey League Championships and an All-Ontario Championship (in its only year of eligibility).
After moving to Utah, Mr. Weiss successfully owned, operated and coached the Utah Valley Golden Eagles for 6 years. His teams were consistently in the upper echelons of the Western States Hockey League and made the playoffs in every year of competition. The Utah Valley Golden Eagles also produced the first AAA Midget hockey team in Utah, which ended up winning the Southwest Hockey League Regular Season Champions in its only year of operation.
More recently, Mr. Weiss served as head coach for the Brigham Young University Cougars for three years. Subsequently, he served as General Manager of the team for an additional three years and then as a board member for 4 years, including 1 year as the President and Chairman.
In 2014, Mr. Weiss accepted an offer to coach the Utah Lady Grizzlies U19 DII hockey team. At the time, the team was a travel recreational team that did not compete for Regional or National Championships. Over the next 3 years, Mr. Weiss built the team into a successful and aspirational young ladies program. In its first year, the team came within an overtime goal of winning the Rocky Mountain District Championships. The following 2 years, the Utah Lady Grizzlies dominated the Rocky Mountain Districts and became the first Girls team from Utah to represent the District at the National tournament. In the final (third) year as Coach, the Lady Grizzlies were the 4th ranked U19 DII team in the country.
