Want to learn from some of the biggest names in the hockey world like Barry Trotz (Washington Capitals), Glen Gulutzan (Calgary Flames) and Bob McKenzie (TSN)?

Those are just some of the names that have previously spoken at the TeamSnap Hockey Coaches Conference, which is returning to Toronto on July 20-21, 2018 at the Humber College Lakeshore Campus. There will be on-ice presentations at the MasterCard Centre as well. The conference is produced by The Coaches Site, the number one online resource for hockey coaches and proud sponsor of the OMHA Coach of the Month program.

Now in its eighth year, the Hockey Coaches Conference celebrates the contributions of amateur coaches to our game and their respective communities by connecting them with professional coaches and experts in human performance.

This unique grassroots event features keynote presentations, breakouts, panel discussions, live interviews, on-ice demonstrations, and various social functions. This year’s conference is expected to be one of the largest coaching events ever assembled, with coaches traveling from across North America and Europe to attend.

The Coaches Site prides itself on attracting top coaches and industry leaders to the conference. This annual event is an incredible opportunity for minor hockey coaches to collaborate with other coaches, build strong networks, and to learn from elite coaches and experts who influence the game today.

In the past, the conference has covered topics like: the latest game-changing technology, skills and drills, building culture, nutrition, training, and so much more. This year they are adding to that list with speakers on issues like mental health and other issues impacting grassroots coaches.
