Todd Cadieux has been involved with ice hockey for more than 40 years. While neither his hockey career nor skateboarding/snowboarding ventures provided opportunities to make a living within the sports he loved, he did find success in the Telecom/Software industry. Todd has been a part of two successful technology start-ups, in which he was an early employee and watched the companies grow through their IPOs (Initial Public Offering) and become leaders in their respective markets.
It has been this entrepreneurial spirit that he has leveraged to create and grow the Pacific Ridge Hockey Club. His idea was simple: create more than a club team, create an environment that allows high-level hockey players to have a balance of hockey, academics, and their social experiences to create true scholar athletes. With the partnership of Pacific Ridge School, Todd and the entire PRHC staff is working toward this common goal.
Todd started playing Hockey at 11. In his home town of Rochester Michigan, he played for Avon Township, which at the time was part of the Tri-County Travel Hockey league in Southeast Michigan. At the age of 19 he stopped playing hockey to pursue a pro skateboarding career and at the age of 20 moved to Southern California. He started playing again at the age of 25 and continues to play to this day.
Years Coaching: Todd has coached/managed Hockey clubs for more than 15 years, starting with the Escondido Ice-O-Plex Penguins, and eventually coaching for 5 years with the San Diego Jr. Gulls. In 2015 he left the Jr. Gulls program to start what is now the Pacific Ridge Hockey Club.
