As part of the Celebrate Hockey Segment, the Edmonton Oilers Coach Connection presented by EnCana launched today. This new online resource and database offers Oil Country coaches an opportunity to share information, ask questions and receive valuable coaching tips.
"We are delighted to help local coaches in Oil Country tap into great online tips and training ideas from the Oiler coaches -- exemplary leaders who are teaching and guiding the game we love at the highest level,” said Al Reid, VP, Business Services & Stakeholder Relations, EnCana Corporation. “Our sponsorship of the Edmonton Oilers Coach Connection is a family and community development initiative that is designed to enhance the skills and lives of young hockey players and their coaches right across northern Alberta,"
A highlight of the site is the ability to interact with the Oilers coaching staff. Questions can be submitted to Charlie Huddy, Bill Moores, Kelly Buchberger, Pete Peeters and Steve Serdachny who specialize in defence, special teams, offense, goaltending and skating, respectively.
“The Edmonton Oilers Coach Connection is a great resource for coaches across Oil Country,” said Charlie Huddy, Edmonton Oilers Assistant Coach. “Our coaching staff is looking forward to interacting with the coaches who utilize this system to help develop the skills of young players.”
Weekly emails will be sent to all coaches who register to the database with coaching information, tips and tricks of the trade. Coaches will also be able to participate on message board conversations with other coaches across Oil Country.
The Edmonton Oilers 30th Anniversary Season is presented in part by the Rexall Family of Pharmacies, Bell, Molson Canadian, ATB Financial and Ford.
