Hockey Coach's Manual by Michael A Smith
Book Description"Hockey is a game that demands good sound skills as the foundation for both individual players and the team, " writes Mike Smith. And team success, he adds, is simply a reflection of coaching success. In The Hockey Coach's Manual: A Guide to Drills, Skills, Tactics and Conditioning , Smith presents a winning formula for the hockey season. Complete with over 125 step-by-step diagrams, this book helps coaches set up a season-long program and walks them through a host of dryland and on-ice training regimens that will build team cooperation and enhance individual ability. Dozens of skill-building drills provide coaches with the tactical and strategic advantage vital for matching a tailor-made hockey system--whether based on conservative or aggressive play -- to the achievement level of players aged 9 to 18. A timeless and accessible handbook, The Hockey Coach's Manual is invaluable both as an introduction and as a quick refresher course to the challenging responsibility of coaching hockey.
