Hockey Manitoba is proud to celebrate the 6th Annual National Coaches Week (September 19, 2020 – September 27, 2020) presented by the Coaching Association of Canada and Territorial Coaching Representatives.  

Beginning on Saturday September 19th, 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 of Hockey Manitoba’s coaching resources throughout the week such as the Hockey Manitoba Coach Tool Kit and the Hockey Canada Network App.
