2016 Hockey Coaches Conference
Topic: Pro Players on their Coaches
Presenter: Natalie Spooner, Brendan Gaunce, & Mike Duco
The funny thing about coaching each person on your team rather than simply coaching a team is it’s a tact that still hasn’t caught on completely. Sure, minor hockey coaches don’t get to visit casually with their players next to the water cooler every morning. It’s difficult to build a personal relationship.
Although, the audience is different. Travis Green might have more time with Brendan Gaunce than you do with your players, but I can tell you from experience that it’s a lot tougher to crack through the guard of a hockey player in his or her mid 20’s than it is an ’08 from the lower mainland who is pumped just to be getting attention from someone other than their parents.
