Coaches Corner (Elliot Lake Minor Hockey)

PrintCoaches Corner


The role of a hockey coach is instrumental in the success and growth of their team. Coaches are vital in developing hockey skills and hockey IQ, as well as team camaraderie, fostering a positive team culture, and instilling discipline and determination in their players. Their guidance and support are essential in helping players reach their full potential and achieve their goals on and off the ice.  Coaches commit countless hours on and off the ice to prepare for each game. Their passion for the game inspires us to work harder, dream bigger, and to give our best. We, the Elliot Lake Minor Hockey Executive, are truly grateful for their leadership, guidance, and hard work.
