This symposium is held to help introduce our program to new coaches, refresh existing coaches, and certify coaches prior to the season starting. This course is to be paid for by the user and then MHMHA will reimburse you for the cost once completed. It is recommended to finish the online portion of the course prior to the classroom portion.
This is the in-person component to follow up the HU-ONLINE Coach 1/2. It emphasizes basic skills and the importance of having players develop confidence, self-esteem, and a love for the game. Each coach will be granted access to the Hockey Canada Network App that will provide yearly practice plans, videos and additional coaching resources.
Checking skill acquisition, four phases of checking – positioning and angling, stick checks, contact confidence, body checking, checking safety, checking skills drills, roles and responsibilities. The clinic emphasizes basic checking skills and the importance of having players develop confidence, respect and an awareness of the checking process.
This event is a great opportunity to come and learn from some of the top hockey minds; Fran Gow, Kevin Higo, and Matt Weninger. The Seminar is free for all coaches, but it is required for participants to register ahead of time. The clinic will take place from 7:30 – 9:30 at the Hockey Hounds Arena Social Room.
