NCCP Instructional Stream Clinics

The NCCP Instructional Stream is a series of practical clinics from Hockey Canada, certified by the Coaching Association of Canada, that provide training and/or certification in a variety of technical/tactical areas.
These clinics are designed for coaches. They focus on developing the knowledge and skills required to teach age appropriate skills in accordance with Hockey Canada's LTPD model. Clinics are 3 hours duration, 1.5 hours in class followed by 1.5 hours on ice, and are delivered by trained Hockey Canada skills instructors.
All Instructional Stream clinics are approved for Certification Maintenance and are worth 5 points.

  • Clinic streams are comprised of three levels - Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3.
  • Coaches become trained at levels 1 and 2.
  • Level 3 is a certification and requires post clinic assignment work and field evaluations.
  • Clinics must be taken in order (i.e. level 1 before level 2).

Skills

The Skills Instructional Stream clinic provides coaches the tools and skills required to teach puck related skills to players of all ages in a progressive manner, which means you’ll learn how to teach by building from skills to individual tactics. Coaches will gain insight into the need to consider skill development plans and how to use effective drills and teaching techniques for skill improvement.
Level 1 starts with focusing on individual puck control skills only with levels 2 and 3 adding puck skills that involve one or more players and begin to contribute to tactics.

Developing Defensmen

In this clinic series, coaches learn how to teach defensemen specific skills in a progressive manner. The ability to contribute offensively and defensively is the foundation for all defensemen. A defenseman’s overall ability is directly related to their performance in skating, puck control, shooting, and checking. This fundamental connection between a defenseman's overal ability and their individual skills means coaches need to create development plans for their defensemen and dedicate adequate time to the instruction of defense specific skills in practices.

Coaches will gain insight into the need to consider skill development plans and how to use effective drills and teaching techniques for checking skill improvement.
The Checking Level 1 clinic is embedded in the Coach 2 and Development 1 clinics so coaches having taken those clinics are considered trained in Checking Level 1.

Goaltending

The Goaltending Instructional Stream clinics are designed to teach coaches how to teach goaltenders. And we stress this very important point...they are for all coaches, not just goalie coaches. The topics covered in these clincis form a valuable information base for head and assistant coaches. And given the vast majority of minor hockey teams do not have a goalie coach it becomes critical that at least one coach on a team has taken some training and understands the positiion and the required skills. Topics for the goaltending clinics are as follows:

Goaltending Level 1 Goaltending Level 2 Goaltending Level 3
Skating
Stance
Moving Skills
Positioning
Basic Saves
Basic Rebound Control
Puckhandling
