Hockey Director Conference

Minnesota Hockey is excited to offer the 2017 High Performance Hockey Director Conference (HDC) for association player development leaders. The conference, which is designed to provide training and best practices for executing world class youth hockey skill development programs, will be held April 22-23 at the Marriott Minneapolis West in St. Louis Park, MN.

The event will provide attendees with the knowledge and experience necessary to create a competitive setting that fuels skill development over a season, and ultimately, through a player’s hockey career.

The conference will feature presentations from local and national youth hockey development experts, on-ice demonstrations, workshop sessions among the directors themselves and interactive Q & A panels.  

The topics of the conference sessions will progress from the scientific foundation of player development principles to the application of those principles to programs organized by community associations in Minnesota. 

Registration is now closed.
