Head Coach - Leah Schaar

Leah has a distinguished coaching career, having served as both Head and Assistant Coach for girls' and boys' teams of various levels at the Elmbrook Youth Hockey Association. She has also coached the Wisconsin Girls Kohlman Cup Tournament Teams and Team Wisconsin Summer and Fall Showcases, in addition to numerous youth girls and boys tournament teams.

Leah quickly climbed the ranks of youth hockey leadership, taking on roles as VP On Ice and President. In these capacities, she managed the organization's daily operations and direction, while providing guidance and structure for coaching and player development.

Leah is particularly proud of founding the Elmbrook girls program from the ground up in 2019, growing the program from just three teams to eight teams in less than three years, with a significant increase in female player registrations.

As a former player, Leah has played AAA hockey at the Wisconsin Wild and NCAA Division III hockey at Concordia University - Wisconsin. She has achieved multiple National Championship appearances, Wisconsin State Championships, and Central District Championships.

Leah's infectious energy and competitive spirit are palpable, and she instills this passion in her players, pushing them to achieve their full potential on and off the ice. She believes in setting high standards and helping her players to reach their goals, while also emphasizing the importance of life skills such as work ethic, communication, and leadership.

Leah holds a Masters of Business Administration and resides in Brookfield with her husband and three sons.
