The Hockey Canada coaching programs are designed to provide coaches with the tools necessary to improve athlete development. Whether it is certification programs, on-line learning, specialty clinics, mentorship or high performance, ultimately the goal is to provide the player with the best possible experience. Coaches are encouraged to continually hone and build on their current skills by entering the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP).
We are Coaches is a three-year campaign, a partnership between Hockey Canada and the Coaching Association of Canada, designed to increase the number of trained female coaches in Canada in order to provide mentors and role models for young participants.

"I coach hockey because I love the game and never want to stop learning about hockey or life. I take something away from every practice, game and event. Being a coach I get to see firsthand, hockey players becoming not only great athletes but, more importantly, solid people in this world."
“I coach hockey because I love the game and the people who are involved in the game. I love to watch the development that occurs both on and off the ice with the student-athletes that I get to work with on a daily basis.”
