Skills Coaching can make (or break) your results

When your job is to help develop players, focussing on individual skills is the most important and effective step. But there’s a big problem: most coaches don’t feel qualified to properly teach skills. 

They can tell you what they think players need to work on, but they can’t tell you how or why. They can tell you that their team needs to be able to break out of their end better, but they fail to see that their team needs to learn better passing, or how to properly open up and pivot to get themselves into good positions where they can face the puck and read the opposition. 

Despite their best intentions, these coaches don’t get the results from their players that they were hoping for, or that their players deserve, which leads to stress, frustration, and burn out.

Teaching Hockey Skills Doesn’t Have To Be So Confusing Or Difficult.

In the Ultimate Guide, we’ll provide you with everything you need to know to feel confident and qualified. Very quickly, you’ll be able to translate your new skills into your season. You’ll know what is right when teaching skills, and how to communicate it effectively, so you can get quality results from your players.

Simply put: knowing how to coach hockey skills effectively is the key to developing your players the way they deserve.

How the Program Works:

Once you register, you can start right away with our Getting Started Quiz. This is just for us to get to know you as a coach so we can provide you with the most assistance possible moving forward.

You also get instant access to over 175 skill videos for all ages and levels.

Once you begin, you’ll find forms, questionnaires, and other resources. They’re yours to use with your players.

Know Where You Last Left Off Automatically.

The guide will show you what videos and lessons you have already completed and which ones you still need to do, so you never have to second guess where you left off.

This also shows you what NEW videos you have missed, as they will be added in a chronological order to how they should be taught instead of just being added to the bottom of the list.

What people are saying

Are You Ready To Start?

A deeper understanding of hockey skills, the authority to coach them, and the ability to turn what you know into results.

Final Note

We are seeing more highly skilled, full speed plays every night on the highlights. There is more competition than ever before.

Whatever age and level you work with, it’s important to understand that the most successful coaches will be those who have a deep understanding of hockey skills and the ability to effectively teach others. 

That’s what we do every day. And we’re ready to teach you the same skills based coaching method we’ve used with professional hockey teams, and over 10,000 hockey players over 20+ years. 

Of course, if now isn’t your time, we understand. We hope this helped you understand who we are and what we do. We’ll be here if and when you need us. 

But if you know that the time for you is now, we have a strong recommendation for you: GO FOR IT. Give yourself the opportunity to truly help your players. Make the commitment and get the education you need.
