Coaching Association of Canada


Hockey Canada offers the following NCCP workshops. Please click the download button under each clinic to view a PDF with more information.

Intro Coach: This NCCP clinic is an ideal starting place for coaches working with athletes that are six years old or younger. The clinic runs for 4 hours (or more) and will teach you basic hockey skills as well as fun ways to encourage athlete participation and enjoyment.

Coach Stream: Coaching at the community level is about getting your young athletes participating, learning age-appropriate skills, and having fun! This clinic will give you the tools you need to make ethical decisions and to conduct fun, safe, and effective skills both on and off the ice.


Development 1: If you are just starting to coach at the competitive level, you will find this clinic invaluable! Learn the importance of creating a season plan and what components it should include. Identify and assess the athletic abilities that your athletes will need to succeed in competitive hockey, then set and monitor progress goals.

You will also learn the logistics of scheduling practices, games and meetings, as well as how to effectively communicate team and individual progress with your athletes and their guardians.


High Performance Clinics are also available to coaches who are ready to move beyond their Development 1 training. Contact your provincial/territorial hockey organization directly for more information.
