Hockey Manitoba is proud to celebrate the 9th Annual National Coaches Week from September 16, 2023 to September 24, 2023 presented by the Coaching Association of Canada and Territorial Coaching Representatives.  

Beginning on Saturday September 16th, Hockey Manitoba in conjunction with Sport Manitoba will be running a week long social media campaign (Instagram, X (Twitter), Facebook, TikTok) 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.

Sport Manitoba will be offering FREE online NCCP courses and free professional development (PD) throughout National Coaches Week:

Please Note: All online and in-person courses listed below are FREE to Manitoba coaches during National Coaches Week. Manitoba coaches – please email prior to registering. There are limited spots available!

You can also visit the Sport Manitoba Coaching News & Events page for a list of free NCCP courses offered during National Coaches Week.

From September 18-22, the Paul Robson Resource Centre for Leadership and Coaching, located at 201-145 Pacific Avenue, will be available for #ThanksCoach video filming, and coaches can receive goodies.
