Hello NGHA Coaches! 
Our NGHA Coach Development Sessions are right around the corner and we wanted to get dates and times out to you so that you could plan your schedules accordingly.

We will be offering the first in a set of several coaching clinics on Monday, 20 October from 8:00-10:30 PM at the Nepean Sportsplex - Rink 3.  These sessions are aimed at exposing coaches of all levels to various concepts and applications that can be applied / scaled to all player levels.

The first session will focus on "Practice Organization and Efficiency" and will be presented by Greg Bowles, Head Coach of the Nepean Wildcats Midget AA team.  While most of the topics in this first session will be described in terms of a Midget application, emphasis will be placed on explaining how these can be scaled appropriately for use at all levels.

Clinic topics will include:
  • Off Ice Dynamic Warm-Up
  • Technical / Tactical Walk-Throughs
  • Video and/or Conditioning Sessions
