Hockey Manitoba is proud to celebrate the 8th Annual National Coaches Week from September 17, 2022 to September 25, 2022 presented by the Coaching Association of Canada and Territorial Coaching Representatives.  

Beginning on Saturday September 17th, Hockey Manitoba in conjunction with Sport Manitoba will be running a week long social media campaign (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) where we will be encouraging players and parents to acknowledge their hockey coaches that have had a positive impact on them by posting messages, pictures and videos on social media using the hashtags #ThanksCoach and #CoachesWeek while tagging @HockeyManitoba and @SportManitoba for a chance to win great prizes.

We will also be highlighting some coaching resources throughout the week such as the Hockey Canada Network App.
