The fun and easy way to coach youth hockey - no experience required! Hockey is growing in leaps and bounds around the world, but the demand for qualified coaches far outstrips availability.

Coaching Hockey For Dummies is ideally suited to meet these growing needs: its message is clear, the information thorough and user friendly, and it brings along a great attitude. For anyone new to coaching, Coaching Hockey For Dummies will provide an invaluable reference. Unlike other coaching books, which only cover what happens on the ice, Coaching Hockey For Dummies covers every aspect of hockey coaching, from what equipment a coach needs, to holding player-parent meetings, to the perfect drills to develop individual and team skills.

About the Author:

Don MacAdam is head coach and co-owner of the Dayton Bombers. A former professional ice hockey player himself, MacAdam has more than 25 years of coaching experience at various elite levels, including teams in the National Hockey League (Detroit Red Wings), the American Hockey League (Edmonton Oilers and Ottawa Senators Farm Teams), the IHL (Milwaukee Admirals), Major Junior (500 Greyhounds), and the Japan Ice Hockey League (the Nippon Paper Cranes), as well as several minor-league teams. He has also served as a consultant with Canada's world championship team, evaluating NHL players as candidates for Team Canada and coaching the team during the Bauer Cup. With a special focus on conditioning for the sport, he lectures at hockey clinics throughout Canada and the United States. MacAdam earned his master's degree in physical education from the University of New Brunswick. Gail Reynolds is an exercise physiologist who has been developing training programs for amateur and elite hockey players and teams over the past 22 years, including NHL stars. A former professor of exercise physiology at the University of New Brunswick, she currently runs her own fitness consulting company. A member of the committee that developed Canada's coaching certification program, Reynolds has also spoken at several Canadian Amateur Hockey Association Level 4 and 5 clinics and lectured at the York symposium for elite coaches. Her articles have appeared in Coaching Review and the Journal of Applied Physiology. Reynolds earned her master's degree in physical education from the University of Western Ontario, where she specialized in exercise physiology and psychology.
