ABOUT THE CLINIC

 

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 2020 and 2021 clinics were moved to a virtual format so we can continue to provide coaches from around the world with this valuable continuing education opportunity.

 

We look forward to you joining us online again for a second year!

READY TO LEARN FROM THE TOP COACHES IN THE WORLD?

SUPPORTING DIVERSITY & INCLUSIVENESS WITHIN HOCKEY

 

A portion of the proceeds from the online clinic will be contributed to initiatives that support the development of female hockey coaches as well as Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) coaches.

 

One of the NHL Coaches' Association's primary objectives is to help in the development of all hockey coaches from the youth level up to the highest levels of hockey, as we strongly believe that coaches are important leaders within their communities, serving as role models at every level of the game.

The NHLCA Female Coaches Development Program and NHLCA BIPOC Coaches Program are initiatives that aim to support female coaches, and BIPOC coaches, respectively, in several areas including skills development, leadership strategies, communication tactics, networking, and career advancement opportunities.
