Author Topic: Former Abington Ice Hockey Coach/President Passes Away  (Read 1478 times)



It is with great sadness we pass along news of the sudden passing of Abington Coach, Steve Schorr. Steve was a true friend of the SHSHL and will be missed. Funeral arrangements are scheduled for this Friday, April 12th at 1pm at Goldstein’s 310 Second Street Pike, Southampton, PA


About MS Coach Steven Schorr - dated September 3, 2018
Steve Schorr has been playing ice hockey for almost 50 years and coaching ice hockey for over 25 years.  Mr. Shorr has been involved with the Abington Ice Hockey Club for almost all of the over 20 years since its reinvention in 1996, in roles that include parent, USA Hockey certified coach, Board Member and his current role as President of the club.   
During his playing career, Steve captained the inaugural Neshaminy High School team and played junior hockey in the Philadelphia area prior to moving on to Villanova University where he played ice hockey and captained the team his senior year.  He continued to play ice hockey while attending graduate school at Northwestern University and after graduation when he returned home to the Philadelphia area to start a family.
Steve has coached in the DVHL and SHSHL for over 25 years at all levels from mites to juniors; from middle school to varsity, taking numerous teams to league and district championships.  He has personally coached Abington teams at every level during his tenure at the club, taking (along with the other coaches) Varsity teams to the Flyers Cup numerous times.
An avid student and fan of the game, Steve believes in a team oriented approach to both coaching and playing.  Steve feels that the privilege of being able to participate in a team sport and the teamwide (and personal) triumphs and adversities that come with it, help the players to build character, a critical factor in the development of a young person.
Coach Schorr has taken a back seat and given younger coaches the opportunity to participate in the program, but the board is thrilled to announce that he has agreed to return to the head coach role and take the reigns of a middle school team that he sees tons of potential in.
