(Peterborough, ON) - The Peterborough Petes have partnered with the OMHA and Millbrook & District Minor Hockey Association (MDMHA) to offer minor hockey coaches and trainers a valuable development opportunity from some of the OHL and NHL's best.
On Saturday, September 14, 2019 from 11:30am to 4:30pm, the Petes will host a Coaches Clinic that will feature presentations on training, practice, game, and season preparation, as well as a presentation on grit, growth, and leadership led by former Petes and current Chicago Blackhawks Scout Mike MacPherson.
Eligible coaches who complete the one-day clinic will receive three certification maintenance points toward their Hockey Canada coaching levels. Light refreshments will be provided during the Clinic.
The cost of the program is just $30 (HST included), with 100% of the proceeds supporting the MDMHA. Registration is available on a first-come, first-served basis by visiting this link: https://gopetesgo.com/coaches-clinic-registration.
