Joining the Capitals coaching staff for the 2020-2021 season is Greg Braun.  Greg and his wife, Kristina, recently moved to Des Moines from Indianapolis for Kristina’s residency at Iowa Methodist Medical Center.

Greg played in both the USHL and NAHL and brings a wealth of coaching experience from the youth, high school, and junior levels. Most recently, he spent 2 years as the assistant coach of his high school alma mater,  coaching them to two state championship appearances and one win.

Greg is interested in individual skill development and has taught this concept at the USA Hockey coach’s clinics. 

He is excited to join Coach Spring and the Capital’s organization and looks forward to a great year.

Congratulations to Des Moines Oak Leafs senior Carter Hobbs and Des Moines Capitals senior Will Young on receiving a $1000 Scholarship Award in honor of Craig Long. While his son, Scott is currently the coach of the Des Moines Oak Leafs, Craig Long was a long time and avid supporter of hockey in Des Moines. After his passing, the Des Moines Youth Hockey Association established this scholarship to be awarded each year to a graduating senior as a way to honor and remember Craig and his contributions to hockey in Des Moines. Pictured here are Carter Hobbs, Doug Borud from Des Moines Youth Hockey, Craig Long’s 5 children and Will Young.

Capitals have secured spots in the state tournament.
