USA Hockey is proud to announce that the 2016 Disabled Hockey Workshop will be September 30 - October 2 in Nashville, TN. New and existing program administrators from around the country will come together for a weekend of educational sessions and networking. The best part is that the workhsop is FREE! Participants will be responsible for transportation and hotel cost, but the actual educational sessions will be covered by the USA Hockey Disabled Hockey Section.
This year we will again be offering individual sessions for attendees to choose from. Many of the sessions will be offered multiple times so you can get to the ones you want. Some of the tentative sessions include:
The workshop will begin at noon on Friday, September 30, and will conclude at noon on Sunday, October 2.
As part of the Disabled Hockey Workshop, there will be two coaching education training opportunities. Theses programs are listed below. If you register for one of these, you are also invited to attend the educational sessions of the Disabled Hockey Workshop on Friday along with the Keynote Dinner Friday night.
For more information about the coaching education opportunities, contact Chuck Gridley, USA Hockey's Coaching Education Liaison for Disabled Hockey, at firstname.lastname@example.org
With the help and support of American Special Hockey Association (ASHA), for the first time there will be a coaching education clinic offered just for Special Hockey Coaches. This is a joint program between USA Hockey and ASHA and will cover not only advanced coaching techniques, but also cover topics like behavior management, locker room safety and management, matching lines and understanding player levels, basic first aid concerns as well as social media, the good and the bad.
Both USA Hockey and ASHA are excited to be working on this project together to support the needs of coaches of Special Hockey Teams.
This program will be Saturday: 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. and Sunday: 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
This coaching education program is for sled hockey coaches that have been coaching for a few years or more and are looking for advanced coaching education. Unlike a normal Disabled Hockey Coaching clinic, this clinic will focus on sled hockey and helping players get to the next level. Coaches and staff from the U.S. National Sled Hockey team will lead presentations and you will watch team practices. You will discuss practice planning as well as incorporating small area games. There will be an opportunity for open discussion as well as a chance to discuss what USA Hockey can do to better serve sled hockey coaches and the advancement of sled hockey.
This program will be Saturday: 8:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. and Sunday: 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
