Future Leaders Development Program
The Future Leader Development Program is designed to train and mentor post-secondary students in the area of coaching. Selected future leaders will be trained, both on and off ice, through 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 and accommodations.
- Hockey Alberta track suit and 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 first established in 1998, the Hockey Alberta Foundation has invested annually in the development of great leaders for the future of the game and our communities in Alberta.
