Head coaches 2022

Quality of coaches is a very important request of Fair and Fun Hockey. Currently proceedings with high performance coaches are in progress and will be finished soon.

Villach Youth

Florian Mühlstein, who has already been coach at the adult camps in Gmunden, will make his FFH comeback in 2022 and lead the youth camp in Villach.

Florian is both Carinthian regional development coach and head coach of the U16 men's national team. As a player, he played 250 games for Salzburg and Villach in Austria's top division and also played for Austria's Men's A/U20/U18 National Team in a total of five World Championships, including one A World Cup.

St. Pölten

Tomas Kala is member of the FFH coaching staff since 2015. With him an absolute top man could be engagend as a head coach for all the camps at St. Pölten.

After a playing career in the Czech Republic (Junior Extra league HC Slavia Praha, 1st and 2nd league), he was the owner of CIHIC Hockey Academy, organizer of international ice hockey tournaments and camp coordinator for the Okanagan Hockey School Europe.

As a coach he has also worked in Belgium: (IJshockey Club Moose Maaseik and the Bulldogs Ice Hockey Club de Liège) and in Vienna for many years (Vienna Tigers). At the moment he is coaching teams at Vienna and Lower Austria.

St. Pölten Adults

After his FFH debut in 2021, Patrick PETER will be part of the FFH coaching team again in 2022. Patrick played more than 400 matches for the Vienna Capitals and played in three U20 World Championships. He also played for Austria in three World Championships with the senior national team. In spring 2020 he had to end his playing career at the age of 27 due to knee problems.

However, it is all the more pleasing that he will bring all his experience from over 20 years of ice hockey to the camp participants in St. Pölten at Fair and Fun Hockey.
