Virtual coaching is the present and the future. If you haven’t embraced it yet, you’re falling behind. While in-rink coaching is extremely valuable, the best coaches understand there is unbelievable value to leaving the rink and working with players virtually.

The current crop of players all grew up with iPads and tablets in their hands and are used to working with technology. They are used to this kind of teaching and thrive in that environment. There is a hunger from players and parents to use this prevalent teaching tool to improve and get better.

Traditional practices offer difficulty when it comes to personalizing practice to each individual. Virtual/video work allows for a more personalized experience. For example, you can now pull LiveBarn footage and send that to players with teaching points.

Another example would be technique work. How does that work?

  • Players are able to upload a video of themselves
  • I then analyze and add commentary
  • Once done, I send back the commentary and video for the player to digest and train
  • Repeat the cycle

This is a highly personal coaching process that players absolutely love.
