Colorado Select Girls Hockey Association is excited to announce the appointment of a new Recreational Director of Hockey, who will oversee all the recreational programs in the association. Please welcome Bryan Smith to the Select family!
Bryan, who grew up in Michigan, currently resides in Evergreen with his wife, Carisa, and their 21-month old son Waylon. Bryan says he is “in love with the west and Colorado and will always live here.” Hockey is a family affair for the Smiths, as Bryan and Carisa, who also played college hockey, met through hockey. Bryan says he “loves being a papa” to Waylon, and that it “has opened my eyes in so many ways.”
For the past 12 years he has been the owner of Rocky Mountain Hockey Schools. Additionally, for the past four years Bryan has served as the first ever Hockey Director for Summit hockey. He also has several years of coaching experience that not only include six years of boys Tier I and four years of high school hockey with Summit High School, but having coached over 100 games overseas in Europe and Scandinavia. His coaching experience spans all levels and age groups of both boy’s and girl’s youth hockey.
Bryan also brings significant experience working with CAHA and USA Hockey at both the state and district levels. Not only has Bryan served as an evaluator the CAHA State Camp, but also for USA Hockey at the Rocky Mountain Player Development Camp. Brian has also been an instructor for the USA Hockey Coach Education Program (CEP).
When not on the ice or around the rink Bryan has truly embraced the Colorado lifestyle since moving here in 1999. He and his family enjoy spending time outdoors in all seasons dirt biking, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, fishing, hunting, hiking, and camping.
Bryan brings a wealth of experience to the Select and a passion for growing the game of hockey from the 8U level up. Please take a moment if you see Bryan around the rink to say hello and welcome him and his family to our family.

The Colorado Select Girls Hockey Association (Colorado Select) is the first and only all girls’ hockey association in the state of Colorado. We are a hockey organization devoted to promoting and expanding girls’ hockey in Colorado. The purpose of the Colorado Select Girls Hockey Association is to foster the development of young girls in their pursuit of excellence in a team sport. We want to support the girls of Colorado who want to play a sport that can take them into district championships, college scholarships and even to gold medals. Scholarship and educational opportunities are rapidly increasing as more and more programs are developed.
The Colorado Select Girls Hockey Association has been host to several visits from USA Hockey already this season. Two of the more memorable visits where documented on video by USA Hockey. First CSGHA hosted a USA Hockey ADM clinic and demonstrated what makes us the only all girls USA Hockey ADM Model Association in the country. Most recently the CSGHA hosted a visit by members of the 2014 USA Hockey Women's National Team. Check out the videos of both events.
