These sessions are the first group of sessions that have been scheduled. Please do your best to attend the first session as we will be discussing teaching theory and program basics. More sessions will be scheduled in May and throughout the summer. Coaches are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible. The Skating Skills Coaching Program will culminate in an optional practical skating, practical teaching and theory assessment.
There is no charge for those coaching for Mentor Youth Hockey for the 2019-2020 season.
