Tim Hortons Coaches Clinic - Oct 18, 2008

Scotiabank Place
Saturday, October 18, 2008
8:00am – 12:30pm
Click HERE for information.
Learn from the pros! The Ottawa Senators Hockey Club has teamed up with local minor hockey associations to help shape the future of minor hockey in Ottawa and the surrounding regions!
Over the past five seasons, more than 3,500 coaches have participated, at no cost, in the Tim Hortons Coaches Clinic. This is a great opportunity to further develop your skills as a coach and ultimately make a difference to your minor hockey team.
The Ottawa Senators and Tim Hortons, along with the ODMHA, Hockey Outaouais and the ODWHA believe that we need to continue to educate our coaches, allowing them access to more information and resources to ensure a level of comfort delivering a variety of drills that focus on skill development while emphasizing fun.
Each coach will be provided with the opportunity to participate in an interactive training session. Your course manual will allow you to follow along with a visual agenda, which will enable you to take notes throughout the day.
The recommendations of 1999’s Open Ice Summit clearly focused on player skill development as the key building block towards a stronger minor hockey community. These recommendations continue to form the basis of the Senators minor hockey programs today and will assist in formulating the on-ice sessions and discussion topics for this year’s Tim Hortons Coaches Clinic.
Coaches from across eastern Ontario and western Quebec will be in attendance…will you? Help shape the future of hockey in our region today!
Past clinic formats have included:
-Keynote Address
-Senators Instructional practice
-Off-ice and On-Ice Warmups
-Off-ice Training Tips
-Goaltending Fundamentals
-Mini-games and activities that promote skill development
