When it comes to fostering a youth athlete’s love for hockey, there may be no one more influential than their coach. Coaches can impact how players feel about the game of hockey every time they step on the ice. Whether it is helping players develop their skills or teaching life lessons, coaches should strive to create a fun, positive atmosphere that will leave a lasting impression on today's young players.
