Doug Boulanger

Doug Boulanger was born in Quebec City, Canada. 

In 2011, he graduated with the highest honors from Southern New Hampshire University and their three-year Business Administration program. While attending the university, he was also a member of the Division II men's ice hockey team. After graduating in June 2011, Doug relocated to Switzerland where he founded and developed his Academy.

In 2012, Doug Boulanger was hired by the Lausanne Hockey Club as the head coach of the Midget AAA program.

During this time, Doug made it his mission to find a way to create custom skills programs that were tailored to individual ice hockey players by monitoring their development throughout the year. To date, the academy works with more than 2,000 hockey players annually, with skill levels ranging from beginners to professionals.

The 6ix Sports Leadership puts all its knowledge and skills into supporting players and their families by implementing individualized development strategies. Doug's position as manager of player development will be to work on the specific needs of the athletes (video, skating, shooting, technical support). 

In collaboration with Jeremy Gailland, head of The 6ix Sports Leadership annual hockey camps, invited players will work with Doug through a series of intense on and off ice days. The camps will focus primarily on innovative training techniques tailored toward specific player profiles. This approach will allow the camp to meet its core objectives of improving its players technical and mental skills and putting them in the best possible position to achieve their personal goals for their upcoming season. 

Our team, a team at your side for each important decision.
