Initiation Program

INITIATION COACH CLINICS Presented by Tim Hortons

IP-timbitsAs a committment to the development of players & coaches in our province, all IP Level clinics are free of charge to Hockey Manitoba members of the current season. Members are those who are officially registered by Hockey Manitoba as a player, coach, or official of the current season of the clinic.

Hockey Canada’s Initiation Program is specifically designed for coaches working with the first time athlete, aged 5-8. The program focuses on helping coaches introduce and refine the most fundamental skills in hockey, such as skating, stopping, turning, puck handling, passing and shooting. Coaches taking an Initiation Program clinic will learn about Growth and Development, Lesson Organization, Communication/Leadership and Teaching Skills and Skill Analysis.

The Initiation Program is a six (6) hour instructional clinic;including a 1-hour on-ice session. All clinic participants will receive an (1) Initiation Program Skills Manual at their clinic.

PLEASE NOTE: The Initiation Program is NOT a pre-requisite to the Coach Level. Please see Certification Requirements if you are unsure about the certification course you require.

All TEAM STAFF (coaches, managers, safety persons) must have Respect In Sport certification by December 1.
