2016 Hockey Coaches Conference
Topic: How to Run an Effective Practice
Presenter: Stan Butler
Stan Butler is the Head Coach of the North Bay Battalion and is the longest serving coach in the OHL with one team; joining the Battalion in their inaugural season.
Stan shared some of his philosophies on how he prepares for practices at our inaugural conference in Toronto this past summer. In his words, “Your team either gets better or worse each practice. They don’t stay the same”. Stan comes from a teaching background and it’s clear that he has adopted methods from other sports and outside influences to keep practice fresh and competitive.
