Miles McCue

Monument, Colorado

Miles has had a passion for ice hockey ever since he started playing thirteen years ago. He grew up in Plano, Texas and moved to Colorado when he was 15 years old to pursue playing AAA. Miles spent the most recent season playing junior hockey for the Utah Outliers. Miles' advisors, coaches, and mentors have noticed significant improvement in his skating ever since he started working with Katy Jo. The growth that Miles has made in his game just through his improved skating habits has inspired him to teach younger players the fundamentals and principles of skating that are now instilled in him.
