Future Leaders Development Program

May 3-5, 2019 in Red Deer, AB

The Future Leader Development Program is designed to develop and train post-secondary students in the area of coaching. Selected Future Leaders will be trained on and off ice through classroom sessions that include: skill development, leadership, team building and off ice training. Along with classroom sessions and tasks, future leaders will plan and deliver on-ice sessions. The Future Leaders Development Program helps to provide a base of enthusiastic coaches that will play an active role in Hockey Alberta programs and within their communities for years to come.

Included in the Future Leaders Development weekend is:

  • Meals
  • Accommodations
  • Hockey Alberta track suit & apparel package
  • Coach resource package
  • National Coaching Certification Program - Coach Level 2 - Trained Status
  • Scholarship Opportunities

Following the Future Leader Development weekend, eight future leaders will be invited to work with a Team Alberta U16 program. The provincial camp provides a second stage of coaching development in practice and game settings, along with an opportunity to work with Alberta’s best athletes at the U16 level. All Future Leaders who participate in a summer camp are eligible for a $1,000 scholarship.

Since the Future Leaders Scholarship program was established in 1998, Hockey Alberta Foundation has invested annually in the development of great leaders for the future of the game and our communities in Alberta.
