We’d like to highlight some valuable resources for coaches. Check them out!
Hockey Share: Hockey Share is an excellent resource. Practice planning sheets, drills, and a lot more. Hockey Share has a wealth of tools and information for coaches. It also offers a healthy amount for players, including 10,000 pucks. Tracking for players, teams, and associations. Much of the resources are free, some require a login, and a relatively small amount requires a paid subscription. 10,000 pucks is free.
The Hockey Coach 14: Coach Rick Traugott writes articles primarily for the hockey coach. Occasionally he offers advice directly to the player. He also offers a few e-books. He is a great resource for coaches. Parents and players can get something from him too!
Ice Hockey Systems: IHS offers drills, practice plans, systems, and coaching resources. NHL Hall of Famer, Denis Savard, is featured presenter on IHS. He does a series on a variety of coaching subjects. Some of the material is downloadable. Some of the content requires an account. Free accounts are available.
Positive Coach Alliance: From the PCA Coaching page: That’s why it is critical that youth have a positive coach, a Double-Goal Coach®, who pursues winning and the even more important goal of teaching life lessons through sports. That way, no matter the outcome of a contest, all children can take a valuable, enriching experience from sports and apply it to the rest of their lives.
