Coaching Courses
Coaches are essential to hockey at every level. A caring, enthusiastic, well-trained coach can be a positive influence on the experience of players, parents and other coaches.

ALLIANCE Hockey works with Hockey Canada, the Ontario Hockey Federation and our Members to provide effective education, certification and registration for hundreds of hockey coaches annually.

Coach 1-Intro to Coach and Coach 2-Coach Level are offered on-demand, allowing participants the option to complete their selected course on their own time and at their own pace. 

These programs also include age-specific content which Coaches are strongly advised to complete for their team(s) division to ensure an enhanced, educational experience.
In example: It is recommended that the U13 Coach completes the U13 age-specific content as well as the general coaching content.  Coaches may resume/complete the general content at any time during their session.
