Coaching Day In BC
Today was an exciting day for BC minor hockey players and coaches alike, as the Vancouver Canucks in conjunction with Tim Hortons hosted a free, one day only coaching clinic at Bill Copeland Arena in Burnaby. Minor hockey coaches from across the province attended this morning to watch Canuck Associate Coaches, Mike Johnston, Barry Smith and Jack McIlhargey in action during the Canucks morning skate.
This was a great opportunity for BC coaches to pick up some pointers from the big guys as all the Canuck coaches were miked during the practice. Following the Canucks skate, the "Timbits" hit the ice to join BC Hockey Course Conductors and local Minor hockey coaches for an ice demonstration before the coaches workshops kicked off.
