Coaches and youth hockey players in Alberta will be the beneficiaries of an exciting new product made available as the result of a partnership between Hockey Alberta and TheDrillbook.com.
TheDrillbook.com is a free coaching and player development platform that delivers cutting edge on-ice programming, coaching assistance, and practice planning tools. Coaches registered with Hockey Alberta will have the opportunity to utilize the resources available through TheDrillbook.com during the 2014-15 season.
"This partnership is a great opportunity for our volunteer coaches across Alberta. We want to provide our coaches high quality resources and information to assist them in the growth and development of our great game,” said Drew Dixon, Manager of Coach Development for Hockey Alberta.
The platform will custom load information, practice plans and videos based on the age level of team/players. The software is state of the art technology and the delivery system allows coaches to access a wealth of information and knowledge and share this information with their players and parents quickly and easily. Coaches also can build practices in video, and manage all aspects of their team activities.
"Hockey Alberta is an outstanding and forward thinking organization, and the organization and its volunteers impact so many young boys and girls in a positive way. There are many success stories as a result of their hard work and commitment and we are very excited to be a part of it," said Mark Maloney, Chief Executive Officer of TheDrillbook.com.
To access the free resources, coaches can go to www.thedrillbook.com, or click on the link on the Coaches tab of the Hockey Alberta website.
