In my constant effort to provide opportunities for coaching development in our area I wanted to make sure every coaching coordinator/hockey director for your member clubs was aware of these two coaching symposiums. I'll be speaking at both and have attended each as a student at some point in coaching career.
The Coaches Site symposium is in Toronto July 20-22 www.thecoachessite.com Strong emphasis on speakers for youth hockey coaches and a lot of presentations geared towards practice planning for specific age groups and skill levels. Group discounts are available for organizations.
The USA Hockey L5 Masters symposium is August 23-26 in Lake Placid. Big time collection of speakers and several breakout sessions for age appropriate practice planning and teaching. Huge emphasis on goalie development for coaches that were not goalies. If you are a L4 and want to achieve your L5, this is the clinic to be at. It is open to all levels but only a L4 can use it for their L5 (in addition to writing a thesis for the CEP program after the conference, usually due a few months later).
