I decided to offer these services after realization that there are many talented individuals involved in this sport who could excel given the right guidance. These individuals will be able to learn skills, ideas and techniques that they can further build upon. I am of the understanding that when someone or something gives to you, you should reciprocate. This is another way where I can give back to the sport by providing knowledge that others can use and pass on. We have all heard about the Mite coach who never played hockey, but knew how to skate. No other parent wanted to step up and now they are left trying to figure out how to coach a hockey team. Not only are they coaching a hockey team, but they are responsible for teaching a set of age specific skills. More often than not the players and/or coach get discouraged, the season goes awry and there becomes a disinterest in the sport. I am able and willing to provide a valuable resource to the parents, players and coaches before this becomes an issue and the passion for the game is lost.
