Coach mentoring services can be tailored to address the unique needs of an individual coach, group of coaches or an entire association. We use a variety of methods to optimize the results of the mentoring process and to help ensure that we are providing each coach the direction, support and resources that (s)he requires.

Coaches, just like players, have many questions and a desire to learn and grow within their chosen position.

How do I effectively plan my practices?
How can I efficiently make use of ice time and space?
How should I make use of my assistants?
How do I effectively teach skating, passing or shooting?

Core Hockey Training can help address these and many of the other questions which coaches have with respect to planning and running their hockey seasons and individual practices.
