Alain Lemieux

Alain Lemieux's professional experience spans over 30 years, from the National Hockey League (NHL) to the successful development of revolutionary camps and successful youth hockey programs across North America. Drafted by the St. Louis Blues in the early 1980's, Alain's offensive skills became widely recognized throughout the NHL, resulting in a six-year career with the Blues and the Quebec Nordiques. Upon his retirement from the NHL, Alain blended these experiences with the demand for professional youth hockey instruction in cities throughout the country. His projects have had tremendous following and support, bringing such recognizable names as Marc-Andre Fleury, Hall of Fame's Mark Messier, and most significantly, brother and Hockey Hall of Fame superstar, Mario Lemieux. This USA Hockey level 4 coach has served in numerous leadership roles on-ice and off, including his time as consultant with the Pittsburgh Penguins youth hockey program and as the Director of his namesake, the Alain Lemieux Hockey Schools. Alain's ability to challenge and motivate players has resulted in successful junior hockey careers for many of his former youth players, earning them spots in the USHL, NAHL, and the USPHL Premiere League. His unique brand of on-ice training also has earned him an international reputation as a leader in youth hockey development, resulting in work in both Canada and, most recently, with Lithuanian youth hockey organizations. His most distinguished recognition, however, comes from the professional merits he has accrued particularly with the Pittsburgh Selects AAA Youth Hockey organization. In 2010, Alain led his Pee Wee AAA team to the National Championship in New Jersey, was selected as EJEPL All-Star Head Coach for two consecutive seasons ('14-'15, '15- '16), and was named EJEPL Coach of the Year for the 2014-2015 season with his 2002 birth year AAA Selects team.

Welcome to the 2018-19 Florida Alliance tyrouts for the birth year 2004


The FL Alliance 2003 Tournament team finished up their 2017 season with a 4-1-1 record at the Bauer Music City Tournament that was held this past weekend in Nashville.  After dropping an exhibition game against the Nashville Predators, the Alliance went on a three game winning streak that included a shootout win against the Tri-State Spartans.  

In their fourth game against the Huskies, the Alliance got themselves into penalty trouble and found themselves blowing a 3-1 lead to lose in a shootout.  On New Years Day, the Alliance would face off against the Huskies in their final game of the weekend, but this time the outcome was much different.  Florida controlled the game in all three zones against and found the back of the net six times and skated away with a 6-1 victory.     
Aidan Winlsow was solid in net the entire weekend for the 2003 team posting a 1.8GAA in tournament while getting great support from his defenseman. The Florida forwards all chipped in throughout the weekend to score 19 goals while giving up 9 in tournament play.   
Best always, 

Shawn Ray
Head Coach FL Alliance
