Bringing the Practice To The Game – Coach Mentorship

Coach SWAN and Coach DRAPER were pleased to be with the BMHA Coaches last night to talk about “Bringing the Practice To The Game.” Planning considerations with respect to player and team development by 'thinking outside the box' with the drills that coaches use in their practices can 'bring the practice to the game.'

Year Vision, habits, player homework (getting them to think beyond the rink), parent communication, player / coach feedback, goaltender involvement in practices and the importance of position specific as a staple of practices were discussed.

With the support of STRIKE Energy the Bonnyville PONTIACS are committed to Coach and Player Mentorship in the Lakeland Area and upcoming will include Goaltender Sessions, On-Ice Sessions and regular Coach Hot Stove meetings throughout the 2017/18 season.
