In Coaching Hockey by Rob WilliamsLeave a Comment

There’s just one day left at the Global Skills Showcase.

The event, which of course is being held virtually, is going on all week from March 22 to 26. We’re being joined by 19 of hockey’s best skills coaches, as they share their wisdom with us from all over the world.

The event is absolutely free for members of The Coaches Site, and we’re offering a limited-time sale, with annual memberships available for just $99 CAD.

On Day 4, we were joined by four more skills coaches who delivered presentations on specific topics, including: Venla Hovi (deceptive techniques for puck retrievals), John Kennedy Jr. (defending with your feet), Joel Lenius (jab steps – sliding with outside edge), and Derek Miller (anatomy of tactical skill development).

We have been joined by different skills coaches each day (click here to see the full list of participating coaches).

If you missed either of the first four days, don’t worry, as all presentations will be available on-demand following their debut for 10 days post-event for members.

Here’s a quick recap of Day 4:
