Small area games allow more players to be active, while handling the puck in a smaller area and making quicker decisions. Coaches can work on technical skills, individual tactics and team tactics in a manner that is seen as fun by the players.

All registered coaches will receive one complimentary ticket to a World Junior Championship Game. Additional tickets are available to purchase following registration.
