2019 Development Leadership Conference

Development Leadership will be hosted in Red Deer at the new Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre on June 22-23. This opportunity is designed to educate and train leaders within each Minor Hockey Association, providing them with tools and knowledge to bring back to implement in their community. This weekend is a great way to network by learning and sharing with other associations across Alberta. Hockey Alberta encourages all associations to identify individuals and encourage them to take advantage of this opportunity.

The weekend will consist of four seminars of which three are open to associations to register delegates for.

Testimonials from our 2017 Development Leadership Weekend

“The quality of the speakers were really good. I went into the seminar thinking I’d walk away with just a little bit of knowledge in a few areas. To my surprise I walked away with a new knowledge in many areas and am excited to put this newfound expertise into practice for the upcoming season.”

“It was an outstanding experience. Meeting the other delegates and sharing very similar experiences and struggles. The opportunity to learn and grow was immeasurable. A real positive experience”

“Great networking and seeing what other associations are doing. Also, great material provided by Hockey Alberta”

“I really enjoyed the interaction, the overall topics and ideas! Overall Great I would be back!”
