CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada, in partnership with Samsung, unveiled Thursday the Hockey Canada Drill Hub, which gives coaches the ability to download hundreds of drills and construct practice plans.

To create practice plans, coaches must register for a free Hockey Canada Drill Hub account at www.hockeycanada.ca/drillhub, PDF diagrams and descriptions are available without an account.

“This is a fantastic tool that will not only help develop the skills of young Canadian players, but help coaches share information from coast to coast to coast,” said Paul Carson, vice-president of membership development with Hockey Canada. “We’re excited to team with Samsung to continue to grow our development programs, and introduce what we believe is going to be an invaluable resource for coaches.”

“The drill hub is a tremendous tool which helps fuel the Canadian passion and skill set development for hockey players, coaches and parents alike,” said Mark Childs, chief marketing officer with Samsung Canada. “The drill hub ensures learning and coaching is informative, interactive and, most importantly, mobile device accessible. The way the game is taught has evolved over the past 100 years, and Samsung is proud to partner with Hockey Canada to help ensure Canada remains a leader in player development.”
