Minnesota Hockey announced today it will be hosting a series of online coach development sessions for youth hockey coaches. The webinars will provide coaches with opportunities to learn and interact with development experts in Minnesota and across the country.
The offseason provides coaches with time to recover, reflect and then refocus on what they can do better next season. These sessions will assist coaches in enhancing their coaching in a variety of ways.
Below is an overview of the session dates, topics and speakers over the next two weeks. Additional sessions will be scheduled and posted here soon. If you would like to submit an idea for a session, contact us here. Questions on the webinars should be directed to your District HDC.
