Hockey Canada Coaching

Hockey Canada Coaching Program


Coaches are essential to hockey and especially important to minor hockey. A caring, enthusiastic, well-trained coach has the ability to be a positive influence on players, parents and other coaches.

Hockey Canada has worked with Member Branches and local Minor Hockey Associations to provide effective education, certification and registration for thousands of hockey coaches annually.
