Instructional Stream & Specialty Clinics

The Coach Specialty Clinic Program is part of the OMHA Continuing Education Program [CEP] and has been designed to act as a supplementary coach education program to that of the Hockey Canada Coach Mentorship Program.

Specialty Clinics offer coaches a practical session on teaching various skills, tactics and systems. The clinics are 2-3 hour modules that involve classroom and on-ice sessions for coaches that can easily be run during the weekday evenings and/or weekends.

Specialty Clinics were designed with the following messages in mind:

  • Keep them moving – whether it’s a practice, clinic or camp, ices sessions should be designed to engage every participant consistently.
  • Emphasize the Fundamentals – build a foundation that will never crack.
  • Incorporate a progression of skill development for every participant
