Today’s Assignment:

For today…

  1. Complete today’s workout on the TeamBuildr app. Be sure to mark each exercise complete as you finish it.
  1. After you watch it, post something you enjoyed from the webinar to the team WhatsApp group.
  1. Important Reminder: For those of you who are interested in becoming coaches this is a fantastic opportunity. It will look great on your Athletic Profile. With the pandemic, Hockey Canada has made it easier than ever to start your certification allowing you take most of the training online.

    You should register for the We Are Coaches – Coach 1 and Coach 2 sessions for women only. In order to register for these sessions, you’ll have to first create a Hockey Canada eHockey account. You need to be 14 years of age to take the Coach training (if you’re not quite 14, you might make a typo when you enter your age… you can easily correct it later). When you register for these sessions, you’ll be sent information on how to take the pre-requisite Hockey University online coach training modules. Don’t delay… the Coach 1 training is this Thursday evening.
