Frank Marson’s Coaching Bio

“My hockey relationship with Frank spans over 20 years and began when he coached MAA against me. As soon as the chance came, I knew that Frank would be an asset to the Association I was coaching with and asked him to become my assistant. He is a great communicator, motivator and tactical coach. I look forward to watching him develop the next generation of Hornets.” Darryl Giancola, Hornets Mentor Coach and HPP Member.
