Coach. You thought you were just going to sign up your child for the youth league, but when no one else stepped forward, you volunteered to coach the team. But you can't tell a flip pass from a slap shot or an angle check from a hip check! Don't panic—Coaching Youth Hockey is here to help.

From your first team meeting to the season-ending pizza party, Coaching Youth Hockey will get you started and keep you going. You'll learn how to teach the fundamental skills of passing, stickhandling, shooting, and checking. You'll even learn to develop your own coaching style—one that works best for you and your players. Before you know it, you'll be coaching players who are moving, motivated, and most of all, having fun.

  • Survive your first practice and first game
  • Match drills to ability
  • Make practices safe, fun, and rewarding
  • Improve your players and your team
  • Reach all your players
  • Be the coach you never had

"Just what hockey needs! Everything you may encounter with young players can be answered in the pages of this extremely well-written book."—Tom McVie, forty-nine years in pro hockey as a player, coach, and scout

"I was totally confused about instructing my sons when they played hockey. This book would have prevented me from ever having been baffled."—Stan Fischler, "The Hockey Maven," NHL analyst for MSG SportsDesk, and author of Fischler's Illustrated History of Hockey

"Bruce Driver's success as a player came from being a student of the game. He has applied his knowledge of hockey to this coaching guide in an extremely thorough way.
