Jarret Reid’s success on the ice was not limited to Canada, or even his own career. Jarret not only played hockey professionally across the world, he has taught across the world as well. Before Jarret became a part of Ontario’s wave hockey program, becoming the Director of Power Skating and Skill Development, Jarret conducted several skating seminars and clinics in many exotic locals. Some of these locations included, Aosta, Italy, Copenhagen, Denmark, Hamburg Germany, and Grenoble France. Jarret did this for a seven year period and says that the experience of the many different cultures made it easier for Jarret to relate to each individual he coached, and helped him to become versatile and adaptive in communicating with his players, a key to success in any coaching program.
