Casey Cox has 10+ years of coaching experience in both hockey and golf. Casey is a licensed PGA professional and has recently transitioned away from full time teaching to pursue the scientific side of hockey and more sports beyond that. Casey is currently studying for his masters in Kinesiology and Biomechanics.

Casey found the world of biomechanics through his work with golfers in Florida. The technology that Casey was introduced to through his work with elite level and professional golfers sparked the curiosity that eventually led to the biomechanical analysis in hockey. 

Casey’s background athletically began with hockey. He played as a goalie for 20+ years and ended his career at The University of Southern Maine in 2009. Since then, his focus has shifted into the world of biomechanics and physics. The quest to learn what it takes to become the best coach possible starts with the ability to gather the best data possible. After a proper diagnosis, the process of coaching is made much more efficient due to the newfound understanding of exactly how an athlete’s body interacts with itself. This process of building efficiency into athletic motion is the quest on which Casey wants to take every athlete possible.

Casey was a former student of Rob Day's for 16 years. He is excited to have the privilege of learning and working beside Rob once again.
