Olds Minor Hockey Coach Development Seminars 

COACHES: Olds Minor Hockey is once again partnering with Hockey Alberta to bring you a series of Coach Development Seminars throughout the 2017-2018 Season. These workshops are available at no cost to you and you'll receive 1 hour of Concession Credit for every workshop you complete. By bringing this learning opportunity right into your backyard, it's our hope that we can help deliver resources like this to give you an opportunity to gain some insight and experience that you can take back to your teams and incorporate into your practices. Ultimately, our hope is that this will lead to a better coaching experience for all of our coaches, a better playing experience for our players, and overall better player and coach development throughout the association.

Olds will host 6 of these Seminars over the course of the season.
