About the Hockey Canada Network
The Hockey Canada Network provides coaches and players the tools to succeed with drills, skills, videos, practice plans and articles on your tablet or phone. Each of the 1,400+ drills on the Network includes a diagram, demonstration video, key teaching points and a Team Canada game clip showing the skill in a game situation that can be added to a custom Training Plan. The Hockey Canada Network also has over 3,200 articles on everything from coaching tips to nutrition and more than 300 pre-made practice plans!

How to utilize the Hockey Canada Network with your students
Did you know that with the Hockey Canada Network subscription provided to you by Hockey Canada, you can share any content on the Network with individuals who have a free account? Anything you share will be available to these individuals for 14 days. If the content is downloaded within these 14 days, it will remain on their device. This is a great way to share Training Plans with your students ahead of an on-ice session. Simply encourage your students to download the Hockey Canada Network today and register for a free account!

Once students are signed up, you can create a Team (link to support site) on the Network. You can share individual articles or drills with Teams and you can also create Training Plans (link to support site) for your players to review prior to getting on the ice.

New season, new look!
New features and additional content have been launched to further improve the user experience.

The layout of the Coaching, Skill Development and Programs (formerly Learning) sections have been enhanced for easier navigation, and all drills in Skill Development have been filtered and ordered based on progression. As well, video demonstrations of more than 260 skills have been added to the Network, along with clips from Canada’s men’s and women’s national teams, showing skills used in game situations.

Stay tuned as hundreds of additional videos are added over the upcoming weeks to provide coaches, players and parents with even more tools to succeed!
