Time for another section.
It looks like the site is getting about 8-9000 hits a day. I think the increased traffic is because of the links to other hockey sites.
I hope it is helping coaches to run more effective practices.
The reason I do this site is to help coaches. About 60% of the head coaches in minor hockey change each season and it is difficult to be thrown into the situation of running effective practices if you have never coached before. Being a player and being a coach are different things. Some new coaches have a lot of playing experience and some have almost no playing experience.
The purpose of this site is to help both groups and that is why the drills and games here range from beginner to pro.
I have taught physical education for 35 years at all levels from elementary to junior high, high school and 5 years at the college level. I have coached at the schools, in minor hockey, college men and women, university men, international pro teamsand women's semi-pro. My coachiing has taken me to 3 continents and lots of countries where the players at practice didn't speak english. Sometimes I have an interpreter and sometimes not.
The point is that I have always had a passion for this game and for coaching and teaching and it only seems right to share what I have learned. Dwight makes it possible by doing the computer stuff that I don't know how to do. We have never met each other. So he is putting in a lot of time at his expense to help coaches as well.
Anyway, after that; here is another section.
