Mission of the Dolphins Development Program:
Provide players, families, and coaches with support and training focused on elevating Culture, physical Competence, Confidence, enhancing Connection and Culture.
Coach Development will include various training and education sessions including on- and off-ice workshops and webinars from guest coaches. In addition, clear expectations will be set for coaches in accordance with the Quality Sport and Hockey Canada Long Term Development Plan and in line with Hockey Canada’s Long Term Sport Development Model. The goal is to provide opportunities for coaches for continual development, introduce new concepts and ideas to help engage and enhance player experiences, and create collaboration across coaches within the organization.
Player Development is focused on individual and organizational-wide development including skills sessions, webinars for players, and skating opportunities across the organization. Following the Quality Sport and Hockey Canada Long Term Development Plan and in line with Hockey Canada’s Long Term Sport Development Models, the Dolphins Development coaches provide valuable experiences for players beyond skill development and serve as role models and mentors for all players within the Dolphins Organization.
