Coach Japchen came to West Chester University after years of coaching experience ranging from the peewee level and high school through Junior level hockey.  His philosophy has always been to build a championship team from the net out, with main focus of playing defense in all zones.  Growing up the Philadelphia area he was always a huge fan of hockey and the Flyers. 
 
David lives in Doylestown PA and is married with two sons.  When he’s not coaching hockey he enjoys fishing and playing golf.
