Join The Coaches Site for exclusive coaching resources and education

As coaches collect and prepare their resources for the upcoming season, the OMHA is excited to partner with The Coaches Site to create the OMHA Coaches Hub. Full of first-hand accounts and presentations from some of the sport’s biggest names, The Coaches Site is the perfect landing spot for coaches to share ideas with one another through conference videos, articles and seminars.
It’s all a part of growing effort to connect the coaching community across the province with the latest ideas and resources. With dedicated coaches who commit countless volunteer hours out of passion for hockey, The Coaches Site wants to ensure they have the best experience possible for both coaches and players.
“No matter what you do, this sport is going to teach you so many life lessons along the way,” said San Jose Sharks assistant coach Steve Spott at the OMHA AGM. Spott was the guest speaker presented by The Coaches Site. “You’re going to have to deal with adversity, you’re going to have to deal with ups and downs in a hockey season, travel, commitment, time management, the ability to read and react on your feet, deal with pressure situations. It does set along the boundaries for what you’re going to deal with as an adult. The young men and women that are playing it, they are very, very fortunate and are going to take a lot of life lessons out of it.”

The launch of this partnership comes during National Coaches Week, a time to celebrate all the volunteers in our community by saying #ThanksCoach.
