Reflecting on 15 years experience in talent coaching, candidates will get the opportunity to explore a reverse engineering approach to coaching:

  • ⁠What do coaches perceive as creative and why? 
  • ⁠Is hockey behind other sports and how do we help? 
  • ⁠Are there differences in talent coaching and performance coaching? 
  • ⁠How do we get to more creative athletes at performance level? 

The course will look to form a blueprint of technical coaching that supports and guides athletes to be more threatening playing forward and makes the game more fun to watch for spectators.
