As Team Canada’s video coach at the past two World Juniors, it’s important for Tyler Dietrich to be efficient.

Most hockey players don’t have the attention span to sit through hours of video presentations when all they’re thinking of is jumping on the ice and competing against the world’s best. So if you start with a fresh garden hungry for nutrients, how do you turn that into a bountiful harvest you can enjoy for years to come?

It’s not just your players, either. It’s your staff and everyone in your organization. For Dietrich, sharpening your tools and using your resources is an important key to start with when you’re preparing your players. Tyler has spent his post-playing career leading programs in Hungary in addition to his work on the international stage at the Spengler Cup, Karjala Cup, the World Juniors, and the World Championships.

How do you use your experience properly to relate to your players? How does it apply? How do you get your players to buy in? It’s important to ask these questions when you start the process, because those answers will dictate how you approach the season and prepare your players.
