Hockey Canada has developed a series of specialty clinics to offer coaches a practical session on teaching various skills, tactics and systems.
The NOHA is able to offer to its membership the following four Specialty Clinics:
Small Area Games
Shooting and Scoring
These specialty clinics have been developed to provide additional training and education for coaches which they can implement with their players. The instructional modules are based around newly created Hockey Canada resources that address a player’s technical and tactical development. The most important aspect is that the coaches learn how to teach the skills effectively.
Each clinic includes an in-class and on-ice component. The in-class sessions will last approximately 50 minutes and includes an electronic presentation of the skills and discussion of the skills required to perform each drill. Each clinic also requires approximately 60 minutes of ice.
Associations who wish to host the Hockey Canada Specialty Clinics for their Coaches must contact NOHA Technical Director, Andrew Corradini at (705) 474-8851.
