SOUTH EAST EDMONTON RECREATION ASSOCIATION
COACH MENTORSHIP PROGRAM:
Coach mentoring services can be tailored to address the unique needs of an individual coach, group of coaches or an entire association. We use a variety of methods to optimize the results of the mentoring process and to help ensure that we are providing each coach the direction, support and resources that s/he requires. Coaches, just like players, have many questions and a desire to learn and grow within their chosen position.
How to deal with parent and/or player concerns.
How to effectively plan practices.
How to efficiently make use of ice time and space.
How to properly use assistants.
How to effectively teach skating, passing or shooting.
How to use progression to teach hockey skills and tactics, such as passing, shooting and puck handling.
Tony Orsini can help address these and many other questions that coaches have with respect to planning and running their hockey seasons and individual practices.
If you are a coach looking to increase your knowledge please contact Tony. You can arrange for him to come out to one of your practices, where you can shadow him and learn how to teach the skills and tactics.
