The NHLCA Global Coaches’ Clinic is held annually by the NHL Coaches' Association and provides an opportunity for our NHL coaches to share their knowledge and expertise with the broader coaching community.


The clinic aims to educate coaches on the strategies and techniques used at the highest level of hockey while ensuring the information is relevant for all age groups and levels of play, so that every attending coach receives knowledge that is beneficial to their growth as a coach, as well as to his or her players’ development.

Typically the annual NHLCA Global Coaches' Clinic occurs in conjunction with the NHL Draft™, however, as a result of COVID-19, the in-person clinic scheduled for Montreal on June 25, 2020 was cancelled.


Due to the overwhelming demand from our global network of coaches, we have moved the clinic online in order to continue to provide coaches from around the world with this valuable continuing education opportunity.


We look forward to you joining us in this new digital format.

A portion of the proceeds from the online clinic will be contributed to initiatives that support the development of female hockey coaches.

Recognizing the tremendous influence female coaches have on an athlete’s future in the game, earlier this year on International Women’s Day the NHLCA proudly announced a new initiative to help support the development of female hockey coaches across all levels of the game. The NHLCA Female Coaches Development Program is an initiative that aims to support female coaches in several areas including skills development, leadership strategies, communication tactics, networking and career advancement opportunities.
