Jason Domitrovic - Head Coach



Jason’s philosophy:  “Build individuals and a team will develop.”

Jason was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and is a diehard Penguins fan.  He discovered hockey when Mario Lemieux was drafted first overall by the Pens and has fallen in love with the game more and more each day.  He also lived in hockey crazed places like Buffalo, Niagara Falls and Southern Ontario areas where he grew up playing Ice hockey, Roller Hockey, Street Hockey, Floor Hockey, Knee Hockey and all kinds of hockey throughout childhood and into adulthood.  As a former pro roller hockey player, head coach of the RIT collegiate team, and head coach for the Buffalo Junior Wings Major Junior A hockey program he has been a part of some of the winningest and most well respected programs in North America.

Jason moved out west to sunny California where he ran the largest and most well known roller hockey tournament series in the world, NARCh (North American Roller Hockey Championships). Each year NARCh would host regional championships all over North America all in the selection of inviting the best teams in the country to the NARCh Finals where over 300 plus teams would come to participate. Later Jason went on to run the OC Blades which was one of the winningest youth hockey programs in the country and has produced several NHL hockey players. One of Jason's greatest accomplishments was founding the massive tournament known as State Wars Hockey Inc which was created to give every hockey player a fair and equal chance to tryout and represent their home state at the yearly event called, STATE WARS.  He also built and developed from the ground up one of the most successful current day inline hockey programs know as KIHA in Hawaii.  Notable players coached: Rocco Grimaldi (NHL Florida Panthers), Joel Ward (NHL San Jose Sharks), Beau Bennett (NHL Pittsburgh Penguins) Chase De Leo (NHL Winnipeg Jets), and Patrick Kane (NHL Chicago Blackhawks)

John Kromm - Assistant Coach

John was selected to the All American team when he was 18. Has been coaching advanced travel level teams for over 15 years, winning national championships both has a coach and as a player. In 2006 John was hired as the head coach of the MTSU college roller hockey team which competed in the top tier of NCRHA in the South Eastern Conference. In 2010 he moved back to Bend, Oregon to rekindle the dying roller hockey program locally. After years of having no new players in the program there are now over 150 players in town playing roller hockey.

Eric Colter - Assistant Coach



Eric is that one guy in town that if you’ve played hockey in Bend, ever, you know who he is. Eric moved to Bend when he was 12 years old and was immediately the best player in town. The hockey mecca of North Dakota is why. Eric’s family is hockey, coming from North Dakota where his Dad has worked for USA hockey for over 40 years. Eric has also coached youth travel hockey since he was 18 and played at the highest level in Roller earning a spot as captain on the Team USA Jr. roller hockey team in 1999. He has won numerous National Championships as a player and coach. In 2008 Eric moved back to North Dakota where ice hockey was once again his passion. He has coached travel level ice teams for the past 8 years and has witnessed firsthand some of the best run and coached programs in the world. Eric has now moved back to Bend to coach and share his knowledge.
