Free Half Day Coaching Clinic

Toronto Maple Leafs Coaches' Open House offers coaches of all levels across Ontario a unique opportunity to watch, listen and learn from experienced individuals who know what it takes to successfully teach the game at multiple levels.

Guests will have a chance to ask questions and gain insight into drills and exercises from Toronto Maple Leafs Coaches and other special guests that can help young players develop and enhance both their hockey, and mental skills, as well as watch the Toronto Maple Leafs Game Day Skate.

Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey Development is focused on delivering accredited programming at all levels of play. Hockey Schools, clinics and learn to skate sessions are just a few of the programs we offer to help support the growth of the game in Ontario communities.
