Hockey Canada and the OMHA have unveiled a new coach development opportunity called the NCCP Instructional Stream.
The NCCP Instructional Stream are a series of clinics that offer coaches practical sessions on teaching skills and tactics. These 3 hour clinics are composed of in-class and on-ice sessions and are facilitated by OMHA Instructors trained by Hockey Canada.
The focus of these clinics is to assist the coach in developing the knowledge and skills to teach and develop age appropriate skills (based upon Hockey Canada’s Long Term Player Development model).
Coaches can earn Professional Development credit towards renewal of NCCP certification. In the Instructional Steam, Coaches can work towards ‘certified’ status in each of the 5 streams as designated by the NCCP program of the CAC.
The five clinics include: Skating, Skills, Developing Defensemen, Checking and Goaltending.
The OMHA will continue to provide the following NCMP Specialty Clinics which will continue to provide Coaches with the opportunity to earn Professional Development points: Small Area Games and Creating Offense.
