2024 U18 MWC | Mike Hamilton

This is Mike Hamilton's first time serving as an assistant coach of the U.S. National Under-18 Team.

Hamilton, who is in his first season as an assistant coach for USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program, served in the same capacity for Team USA at the 2023 Under-18 Five Nations Tournament, where the U.S. finished first, and again at the 2024 Under-18 Five Nations Tournament.

Named the 2020-2021 USHL Coach of the Year, Hamilton came to the NTDP after five seasons with the Muskegon Lumberjacks, where he is the winningest coach in Lumberjacks franchise history. The Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, native recently assumed the Tier 1 Director role for Biggby Coffee AAA where he will focus heavily on player development.

Hamilton played collegiately at Minnesota State University before a 23-year long career as one of the top youth hockey coaches in Michigan. Over the course of his 23 years, Hamilton won 15 Michigan Amateur Hockey Association state championships and the 2008 Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament.
