About Coach Trimble
Scoring Concepts LLC is founded by Andrew Trimble, the Co- Owner & General Manager for the New England Wolves. In 2014-15 he guided the New England Wolves MJHL team to the most wins by a Laconia- based USA Hockey Junior team since the 2004-05 season, a second place divisional finish, playoff berth, and was a finalist for MJHL "Coach of the Year". His Wolves program followed that season up with a back to back playoff berth (first time in a decade for a Laconia JR franchise) as well as Coaching in the EHL Elite All Star Game (2016). In 2016-17, Trimble's teams set then re-set, the highest win totals by a USA Hockey Junior Program in Laconia in 12 years, as a result he was the Runner- Up for the EHL Elite Coach of the Year and his team recorded the first playoff wins in Wolves Franchise history, advancing to the Northern Conference finals. In 2018-19 Trimble was awarded the EHLP "Coach of the Year" honors, as he guided his team to the EHLP championship.
He came to the Wolves after a successful two year run at Kingswood Regional High School in Wolfeboro, NH, where in his first year with the program, his team’s posted the first winning season in 9 years and followed that with the only back to back playoff appearances in over a decade. His success in the 2012-2013 season led to him being voted as the NHIAA DII Coach of the Year and Foster’s Daily Democrat “Dream Team” Coach.
He comes from a three generation Hockey family: his grandfather, Dick Trimble, was employed by the NHL for over 25 years and won the 1990-91 John J. McMullen Award for service to New Jersey Ice Hockey and his father, Rick, has published 3 successful volumes of “The Ultimate Hockey Drill Book”. Coach Trimble grew up playing in the Brick Hockey Club and ended his career at Manasquan High School as the program’s all-time leading scorer, MVP of his conference, an All-Shore selection, All-Tournament for the 97′ Garden State Games, Manasquan HS Hall of Fame Award, and a selection to the 98′ NJ State Senior All-Star Game.
Andrew went on to play and serve as Assistant Captain for the Laconia Leafs Junior Hockey Team in Laconia, NH and NCAA Hockey for SUNY Buffalo State. He briefly played professionally for the NJ Spartans (CAHA). Certified Personal Trainer.

Scoring Concepts LLC- Philosophy
Scoring Concepts LLC was incorporated in 2011, but has been in development for over 20 years.
Scoring Concepts has 3 key Components:
1. Multi-Skill and Overspeed Drills- The head has to be attached to the hands, which have to be attached to the feet. Elite Hockey players become successful when no component of their body restricts the other parts from performing to maximum capacity.
2. Actions over Over-Analysis- Coach Trimble doesn’t waste valuable ice time talking beside a dry erase board, instead, kids are moving. Students are encouraged to complete activities faster than they think they can complete them, while also enjoying an open format where kids can be creative and have fun. Students recieve the technical corrections, generally 1 on 1, while in the process of completing these activities.
3. Competitions- Partner Drills, small area games and activities that foster engagement; push the athletes to go faster, go further, and go with a greater sense of urgency. Taken from his own experiences as a player, Coach Trimble believes that competitive peer pressure is the greatest single motivator in a young athlete’s life. When competition is applied in the optimal context; a fun, uptempo atmosphere, the results can be extraordinary!
What some people are saying:
“The Division II boys ice hockey all-state team was released Friday and Kingswood’s Andrew Trimble was named D-II coach of the year. Trimble guided the Knights to an overall record of 11-8 and a trip to the D-II tournament (3-2 loss to eventual champion Bedford). Kingswood started 1-5, but then went 10-2 to make the tournament. Their 11-8 record was the most recorded wins for the program in 9 seasons.”
