Why should you attend?

Want to learn to be a better game coach? Want to know what to look for before and during the game to help your team have success? Want to know what factors to consider to make the best decisions about what strategies and tactics to use during a game?

In this seminar, coaches will take part in classroom sessions and live game observations. Coaches will have the opportunity to watch exhibition and round robin games at the Junior Women’s World Championship. Our trio of highly qualified instructors will sit with small groups of coaches during these games and discuss the game action.

  • Make field observations;
  • Scout teams and develop a game plan;
  • Review and analyze game tapes;
  • Assess team and individual performances;
  • Practice personal game tracking, scoring and charting.
