Van Asten Lights Up the Flames
Canadian Sport Institute Calgary – “Imparting knowledge is only lighting other men’s candles at our lamp without depriving ourselves of any flame” – Jane Porter, Scottish historical novelist.
Working alongside experts smarter than him is how Ryan Van Asten became an expert himself. Now the Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Calgary Flames, Van Asten got his start working in high performance sport at CSI Calgary.
The former Junior A and Queen’s University hockey player feels very fortunate that he had the opportunity to rub elbows with some of the best in the business early in his career, like Doc Smith, Steve Norris, Matt Jordan and Scott Maw – experts you don’t find just anywhere.
