Coach Development is perhaps the most under-valued opportunity in sport associations and yet clearly the most valuable. Workshops are typically 2.5-3 hours in length and will provide your coaches with a solution based and hands on experience for your membership. We are portable and deliver all programming in your local community facility.
Building a Championship Team Culture
Establishing a relentlessly positive, safe and engaging environment is critical to team and organization success. How do you do it? What are practical ideas coaches can utilize to develop this culture? We will provide a roadmap for your coaches during this presentation.
Bench Management & Creating Team Strategy
“Learning to see” is a challenging proposition for coaches. If coaches struggle to see why things are occurring then how can they be effective in communicating valuable information to their players? In this presentation, we identify the most common challenges team’s struggle within games and provide strategies which will help coaches effectively manage the bench during games. We also assist coaches in building a vocabulary, establishing a game plan and executing tactics and team play concepts. A game observation occurs as part of this workshop.
Maximize Ice Utilization and Randomized Learning via Small Area Games
Coaches whom can execute innovative and creative small area games will be effective users of the ice and blow the development curve off the charts for their players. The goal in this clinic is to allow the “Game to become the Teacher” and draw attention away from the coach shouting instructions on a consistent basis to players. Learning to adapt and work with both full ice and 1/2 ice menu is also addressed.
In this clinic we work with the coaches to enable them to work more effectively with their goaltenders. In today’s game, many of the goaltending institutions teach a particular style or approach that may not suit everyone. We choose to focus on themes such as:
Building a Foundation of goaltending success.
Creating a pre-game routine.
Effective skill drills and games for goaltender development.
Individual Skill and Tactical Player Development
Building proficient skill sets is an art and craft. In this session, we address performance skating, puck handling/protection, passing, checking and shooting. To maximize skill development, work to rest ratios need to be on target and players need to be engaged and active throughout the practice.
These clinics/meetings assist associations in executing an effective and relevant program.
Player Evaluation & Team Selection
This workshop is designed to assist associations in amending their game plan for successful player evaluations. If you require assistance with curriculum, program design, parental handouts or executing the sessions, we can help.
We perform a 1 hour parenting session for parents of all ages. Sessions are all customized to the appropriate age levels. This session empowers parents and provides them with resources and ideas to assist them in navigating through the challenges of youth sport parenting.

Custom Built Sessions / Workshops
An array of specifically built programming can be developed specific to your associations needs.
Global Sport Academy provides instructor (s) whom will lead teams through specific themes and modules. All clinics are designed to be fun and enjoyable for the players.
Checking & Body-checking Introductory
Highly recommended for young players who have not experienced body-checking. Players will work on the foundation for the effective giving and receiving of a body check thus leading to the development of contact confidence. This clinic specifically addresses the danger zone, technique of give and receive, head on a swivel awareness, checking from behind, body control and respect.
Checking & Body-checking Advanced
Highly recommended for young players whom have a foundation for body checking and want to progress on their initial development. In this clinic we focus on attack and defend principles, gap control and timing as well as small area execution of puck protection and body contact in the challenging areas of the ice.
Shooting and Scoring
Learning to score and attack with precision is a lifelong journey for players. In this clinic we provide players with a background on shooting technique, deking and scoring.
Our goaltending specialist will attend on ice sessions and work with goaltenders and coaches while focusing on specific needs and weaknesses. It is recommended you request 3-4 sessions for this program to maximize its effectiveness.
High Tempo Skills and Games
If your team needs a high intensity and invigorating ice session with fun and engagement, we highly recommend this session. We can link in your team’s weaknesses into the plan for full benefit.
Team Tactics (A focus on Forecheck & BreakOut)
Knowing how to work on tactical elements is a tricky proposition. We will provide coaches with effective and easy to teach drills and games to address both forecheck and breakout concepts.
Incorporating creative skating drills and games into practice can make traditionally boring skating sessions fun and interactive. We customize this clinic to your team’s level and needs.
Fee: $175 per instructor hour, plus gst.
