Welcome Coach JT Tarantino!

Coach Tarantino joined the Mercer Chiefs NCDC coaching staff this season after leading Saint Joseph’s University to its best season in the past 20 years. He took over as Head Coach of the program last March, and in year one led a group that had missed playoffs in 2022 to become 2023 ACCHL Regular Season Champions. He was also the Head Coach of the Philadelphia Little Flyers 2009 team, which moved up a division in the AYHL and made a run to the Bantam Minor championship game.
This year with the NCDC team, JT runs the defensive side of the bench. He also is in charge of special teams and the teams’ daily video sessions. He owns and operates Between The Bucket Hockey Academy, which puts together AAA spring and summer tournament teams while running one on one video sessions and hosting weekly skills sessions.
JT played for the NJ Titans and NJ Rockets Tier 1 and Junior Programs, acting as a captain of several of his nationally ranked teams. Following a successful youth/junior playing career, JT played for Saint Joseph’s University where he was a two-year captain and ACCHL All First Team, posting 135 points in 94 career games.
JT lives in Allentown with his wife Julia and 3-month-old daughter Tillie. He is excited to build the Chiefs Tier 1 program at the rink where he first put ice skates on!
“Could not be more excited. JT brings so much energy and hustle and will help push the Chiefs to being one of the top tier one organizations on the East Coast. On top of it all, he is a class act and will do things the right way. We will have great coaches, and JT will push to make the Chiefs the desired place to play for any player who wants to develop to be the best player they can be, and to have the opportunity to achieve their goals of playing college hockey”…..Mercer Chiefs GM and Head NCDC Coach Rob Broderick.

We are looking for Billet Families for our Chiefs teams including our NCDC team out of ProSkate!

Every season the Mercer Chiefs seek local families to become billet families. This upcoming season is no exception!

What is a billet family you might ask? An exceptional young player who lives outside the area and wants to come play for the Chiefs. Enter the billet family. Billet families provide a caring, supportive, family environment to be the home away from home for each of our players. Billeting can be a very exciting and rewarding experience for those willing to open up their homes to our hockey players. Families are compensated $550 per month, free Stick Time + Public Skating passes.

Join the billeting world and host one of our Chiefs players this year! We have many players coming from a few different states, and we need you!

If interested, please contact Rob at rbroderick9912@gmail.com.
