Vikings Welcome New JV-2 Asst. Coach, Bro. Paul Avvento

Bro. Paul Avvento

Central Catholic Vikings Hockey Club is pleased to welcome Brother Paul Avvento to its coaching core.

Bro. Paul, who is in his first year teaching 10th and 11th grade history at CCHS,  will be assisting Junior Varsity -2 team Head Coach John Beiber. 

Bro. Paul's love for hockey began when he was eight years old. "At first, I played defense and at 11 became a full time goalie," he said. "I played in several leagues, and every Sunday my friends and parents would play at a large parking lot. After a few weeks other kids from the neighborhood would stop by, and 'Firehouse Hockey' became a staple for us."

In college, Bro. Paul transitioned to ice hockey to play for Manhattan’s club team. After college, he continued playing roller hockey after college before returning to ice a few years ago. After playing competitively on several teams, he plays in local pick-up leagues and fills-in for goalies, when needed.

While this is Brother-Coach Avvento's first year coaching ice hockey, he has been in education for 13 years.  Bro. Paul received his bachelor's degree in Education from Manhattan College and his master's degree in Education Leadership from St. Mary's College of California.  He is excited to be teaching CCHS student athletes both in the classroom and on the ice!

Indeed, CCVHC is fortunate that two of its coaches are at CCHS on a day-to-day basis.  Coaching CCVHC junior varsity teams for eight years, Guidance Counselor and Coach James Eller received received both his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. In addition to holding a Masters in Education,  Coach Eller is a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor. 

Coaches Eller and Avvento are excited to develop joint programming to support and guide all of CCVHC's players. "I think it will be amazing that Bro. Paul can bring an even more in depth spirituality component for the boys," said reflected Coach Eller. "I think it’s invaluable that they will have the opportunity to have a Christian Brother as a coach/moderator. I’m really looking forward to him joining our Central Catholic organization."
