Hanover Coaches Learn to Teach at OMHA Coach Specialty Clinic
Friday, September 07, 2012
Hanover, ON: - -
The Ontario Minor Hockey Association [OMHA] in partnership with the Hanover Minor Hockey Association will be at the Normanby Arena Complex from September 8-9 for a Coach Specialty Clinic as part of the OMHA Continuing Education Program.
The program has been designed to act as a supplementary coach education program to that of the Hockey Canada Coach Mentorship Program. The instructional modules are based around Hockey Canada resources that address player technical and tactical development as well as coaching effectiveness. The most important aspect is that the coaches learn how to teach.
“The OMHA is proud to partner with the Hanover Minor Hockey Association to host a Coach Specialty Clinic.” said OMHA Director of Development, Ian Taylor. “It will create a standardized method of teaching in the community which will leave a legacy behind to continue to develop quality coaches within the National Coach Mentorship Program.”
The workshops will consist of both a class room session and on-ice session where a practical curriculum will cover teaching various skills, tactics and systems. Specific topics addressed will include Creating Offense, Shooting & Scoring, Puck Control and Developing Defensemen.
