Canadian Tire First Shift
The Canadian Tire First Shift program is designed to ensure a positive experience for new to hockey families. This means breaking down the barriers that exist for many of these parents, and making them feel at home within our hockey community. We want to take away any intimidation as it relates to the equipment and/or rules of the game, remove potential safety concerns and most importantly, give them an experience that’s memorable and fun.
Given this program is designed for entry level players, instructors and other volunteers should be positive, energetic, creative, fun-loving and above all, patient. Experience teaching hockey is not necessary for all volunteers. But a desire to learn instructional techniques in the delivery of fundamental ice hockey skills is. This must also be coupled with an enthusiastic attitude and desire to work with children.
