Errol McDonald, BA, RRC is the Founder, and Managing Director of Avenue Sports Management. He is a graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology, where he attended and played 4 seasons for the Division I Tigers Hockey Team. After graduating with a degree in Business Management and continued education within the financial industry, Errol added his RRC designation in financial planning.
His path as a player from Junior A, to the NCCA and eventually professional hockey in the United Hockey League, is what assists Errol in providing sound advice to young athletes on and off the ice. His experience in business, marketing and operational development has allowed him to channel those experiences into player advisory, coaching, and development.
Errol is dedicated to push each player to their full potential with effective training, coaching and mentorship to improve their skill set, mental awareness, compete-level and professionalism. As someone who has been through the process, he is able to use his experiences to guide young athletes through those same pathways towards achieving their own goals.

After moving back home to Canada from the States, I realized I wanted to take the NCAA route and continue my hockey career in college. I met Errol from Avenue Sports through a mutual friend, and It’s been a great experience. He has opened many doors at the Junior A level, and mentored me during the recruiting process and with my hockey progression. Very happy with my choice!
I recently signed with avenue sports and I have received so many new opportunities and support. My advisor Paige Dixon has done an incredible job of helping me as a player achieve my personal goals and ambitions! She has continuously day in and out done an amazing job of contacting and creating connections to division one schools that I am interested in to give me more options when deciding where I wish to further my hockey and education. She is an amazing person, advisor and coach and I wouldn’t want anyone else to be my advisor. She has provided me with new connections, coaches and training which have already had such a great impact on my development as a player. She is very hard working and a huge inspiration to me.
Tyler’s specific training is filled with many different skills that every hockey player needs to work on. Before skating with Ty, my hockey IQ wasn’t nearly as good as it is now, as well as my explosiveness, my edge work, my stick handling, my overall ability to know where people are when I have the puck on my stick etc. Ty’s training has really helped me ramp up my overall game physically and mentally.
