MWAHA Coach Seminar Announcement June 24-25, 2023
Recently we sent an announcement about Hockey Development within the MWAHA Affiliate. The success of hockey relies on two important aspects, coaches & player development. Going forward the plan for coaches will include seminars, events, and the formation of a Coach Association where coaches can hear from talented speakers, experience new concepts in coaching and collaborate with fellow coaches from across the Midwest Affiliate.
