And please note:

1. Every attendee receives a unique, one-of-a-kind Coach's Manual summarizing all of the sessions held during the clinic. The Manual includes the speakers' presentations and notes, diagrams and references. This 275+ page manual is only available by attending the clinic.

2. The 17+ sessions held during the clinic cover all dimensions of coaching: from Systems and X's and O's, to Goaltending, to Sport Psychology, to Training and Conditioning, to Team Building, to Leadership and Development, to Using Video In Coaching - and more. While the audience is diverse - from minor hockey to pro coaches - every coach will take away valuable information that they can apply to their respective teams.

3. As many of you know, Hockey Canada has a program of Certification Maintenance for coaches that requires them to earn credits over a 5 year time frame to maintain their coach certification.  As a result, coaches are always looking for approved events to attend that will allow them to address their professional development while also earning credits. We are pleased to announce that the 2019 Roger Neilson's Coaches Clinic has been approved for 6 points.
