Minor hockey diving into development

Chilliwack Minor Hockey seems intent on developing better coaches, and by extension, better players.

Chilliwack Minor Hockey is looking for four people to fill paid developmental coordinator positions in 2012-13.

The coordinators will create and implement training/education programs for CMHA coaches.

The four coordinators will focus their efforts on approximately 26 teams in the Hockey Initiation 1-4 and Atom C divisions.

The coordinators will work separately with 5-6 teams each, but work together to make sure there is continuity in what is being taught.

Coordinators will be expected to assess coaches twice per season, once at the beginning and once at the end.

They will attend at least three practices per team to guide the coaches on how to provide better on-ice instruction.

Coordinators will develop two on-ice coaching clinics that will be mandatory for CMHA coaches.

They will develop an off-ice clinic that will be open to all coaches and mandatory for coaches in Initiation and Atom.

Finally, the coordinators will be reporting to the CMHA Player and Coach Development Committee on a monthly basis.

Each coordinator will be paid $4,000.

Interested candidates can forward their hockey resume (no more than one typed page) to CMHA president David Soltys at president@chilliwackminorhockey.com.
