Complimentary women-only coach training, led by women.
This course is not necessarily targeted to the inexperienced coach; it shows you how to teach hockey's basic skills while keeping the theme of practices with an emphasis on fun and fundamentals. Coach 1 reviews the basic tools you will need in the areas of leadership, communication, teaching skills and lesson planning. All of this is taught with special consideration to the youngest athletes in mind.
