Coach of the Month

Coaches are an integral part of minor hockey and their countless hours and dedication provide the opportunity for over 60,000 kids in Alberta to play hockey. Hockey Alberta mission is to create positive experience for all players in the province. Our coaches provide the leadership to ensure our players have positive outcomes, whether they’re just starting at the U7 level, aspiring to a professional career, or somewhere in-between. Help us recognize a coach in your community by nominating him or her for the Hockey Alberta Coach of the Month!

Coaches will be selected throughout the hockey season and will receive a coaching package valued at over $500, sponsored by Players Bench Team Apparel.

This package will include:

  • Helmet, Gloves, Track Suit, Coach Bag, Puck Bag, Rink Board, and Coaching Resources.
