Mini-NARCE in Minnesota

By USA Hockey 04/25/2017, 3:15pm MDT

April 25, 2017 | Last week, Minnesota Hockey hosted 60 youth coaches and hockey directors for a two-day program-building seminar in St. Louis Park. Guy “Goose” Gosselin, Roger Grillo, Ken Martel and Phil Osaer were there from USA Hockey to share development insights and also help lead on-ice sessions for high-performance 15-year-old skaters and goaltenders from throughout the state.

"It was basically a mini-NARCE," said Martel. "We talked about club development and player development, Phil and Goose led on-ice sessions and Roger went in-depth on coaching. It was a good event and a good opportunity to share ideas with the coaches and directors in Minnesota."

Dave Margenau, president of Minnesota Hockey, called it "an inspiring couple of days" and said that attendees "left with a tremendous amount of excitement."
