Dave Rider began teaching and coaching at Albany Academy in the fall of 1977. His varsity hockey coaching career began with the 1979-80 season and continued for 18 years in the New York State Public High School Athletic Association. During that time, he amassed an overall record of 335-113-14 that included 8 leagues championships and 8 Section II championships. In post season play, Albany Academy made 8 appearances in the final four of the New York State Tournament. The Cadets were state champions in 1883, 1987 and 1991, finalists in 1985, 1986, 1988 and 1990 and semi-finalists in 1997.

Most memorable were the two years in 1990 and 1991. In 1990, Albany Academy finished the year with a record of 27-2, losing in the Division I state championship game, 1-0, in triple overtime to West Genesee, but then came back in 1991 to claim the Division I title with an undefeated 27-0 record.

 After 1997, Albany Academy began playing in the New England Prep School Hockey League and won a Division II New England Championship in 1998. Dave stepped down from his coaching position in 2009 having coached in more than 700 games at Albany Academy guiding them to 427 victories.

 Besides coaching, Dave served as the NYSPHSAA Section II chairman from 1981-1991. He is still heavily involved with USA Hockey where he continues to serve in both the Player Development Program and the Coaching Education Program. In 2004, he was given the Peter Rush Award by the New York State Amateur Hockey Association for his long term dedication and commitment to the growth of youth hockey.

 Dave resides in Glenmont, NY with his wife, Patti. He has two children, Kevin and Kelly.

 

Dave was inducted into the New York State High School Hockey- Hall of Fame, March 2010, for his dedication to the sport as a truly great coach who has contributed noteworthy service to New York State high school hockey.
