Coach Development


As Coaches we play an ever more increasing role in the development of not only
the athletic ability but the type of individual these young athletes will become. One
of may favorite quotes on this subject came from Ray Ferraro "the odds of going
pro are extremely low, but the odds of having to find a carrier and a job to pay bills
and become a father or a husband or wife and mother are extremely high and is not
dictated by if you played AAA hockey".  
 



Important: Usually hockey Alberta offers a development 1 coaching certification
course every other year for the north region. If we have interest in Development 1
certification for this season please email me at gptechdir@gmail.com or call me at
780-933-4921. If we have enough interest we may be able to host one for this
season here in Grande Prairie!
