INTERNATIONAL YOUTH HOCKEY COACHING CONFERENCE
MAY 7. – 9. 2010, Heidelberg (Mannheim), Germany
During the Ice Hockey World Championships in Germany we will be hosting the first ever Coaching Conference for youth hockey coaches. Most of the Professional Coaches are quite familiar with the training and game systems around the world. However, the minor hockey coaches don’t often have the opportunity to hear and see the different training methods of other nations. We will be offering a platform just for the minor hockey coaches. Speakers from some of the leading ice hockey nations will talk about the aspects of how they develop their youth hockey players. These speakers will be experts in the field of training youth ice hockey. After every Topic Session, we will have a question and answer period in order that the coaches can ask particular questions regarding their own situation. We will also have some Speakers who will present information about the science behind the learning skills, and also Speakers from other Sports (ex. Speed skating, Hockey) who will give us an insight into how they train and teach their youth athletes.
On the evening of Friday, May 7, we will host a Poster Session at the Olympic Training Centre. Some of the leading ice hockey nations will have booths that show their coaching education system. This will give the coaches the opportunity to see and talk personally to the coaching educator of that country. There will also have the opportunity to purchase DVD’s, CD’s and print material from these countries. There will be also various Exhibitor booths displaying their products. During the Poster Session the participants will have the opportunity to personally meet coaches from the other nations. Food and drink will be provided during the poster session.
In order to make this unique event financially possible for the minor hockey coaches, we will only be charging € 395; - This includes 3 night’s accommodation, breakfast, lunch, transportation to the hockey arena, tickets to the games on Sa. and Su. presentation materials, binder, shirt, hat, carrying case, and a DVD from all the presentations during the Conference.
