PMHA Set to Host Coaching Clinics!

The Parkland Minor Hockey Association will be hosting three "Specialty Coaching Clinics" with the first set to take place on Sunday, October 15 followed by two clinics on Sunday, October 22.

All the clinics will be free for certified Minor Hockey Coaches, and all the clinics will be at Rotary Arena.

The clinics will include the following:

October 15

Small Area Games: The small area games clinic is designed to provide coaches with information and examples on how to effectively use ice during practice sessions. The classroom portion of the clinic covers information and theory on why using small area games can maximize skill development in practice using examples from both Hockey Canada and the pro level game. The on-ice portion of the clinic allows coaches to run through 10-15 examples of different small area games/drills that they can utilize within their own practices. The small area games clinic is a great starting point for the Coach - Instructional Stream for coaches at the Atom, Peewee and Bantam age categories.

October 22

Developing Defense: The Developing Defense clinic is the introduction into developing skilled defensemen with the focus of the clinic is on skating and transition for defensemen as well as shooting and puck control. The classroom portion of the clinic includes large amounts of video from the Hockey Canada and pro level detailing the different skills that are required from defensemen as they move up into higher levels of hockey. The on-ice session allows coaches to see demonstrations of the various skills as well as working through the mechanics of the skills themselves. Commonly one of our best-reviewed specialty clinics the Developing Defense 1 is best for Peewee, Bantam and Midget coaches.

Skills 1 (Puck Control): The Skills clinic is the introduction into puck control instruction with a focus on puck protection and puck handling along with other skills. The classroom portion of the clinic includes theory as well as large amounts of video from the Hockey Canada and pro level detailing the mechanics of a proper puck handling and puck protection. The on-ice session allows coaches to see demonstrations of the mechanics required for these skills as well as information on skill analysis and error correction directly related to puck control. The Skills 1 clinic provides a great level of instruction that can be utilized by all levels of coaches.

"With the season just beginning around the Parkland, in order to get players in our area playing to their best abilities, we need good coaches," said Darcy Boychuk, Director of Male Player Development for the Parkland Region. "Good coaches need to have the accessibility for clinics like these. We've been looking at doing this for years, and now we have it, so we're excited to host the clinics."
