Coach Development Calendar 2018

CLICK HERE for the 2018 Coach Development Calendar.  

This calendar will be regularly updated throughout the year with additional coach development initiatives and further information on the various programmes listed.

WHA has invested heavily in athlete development programs in 2018 and encourage coaches to attend these programs/camps as part of their coach development.  .     

NOTE: We have three Burgers and Beers evenings for coaches to meet our Wellington and Capital coaches. It's an informal coach development opportunity held on Thursdays from 7pm to 8pm at the National Hockey Stadium Pavillion - 15 Feb, 22 Feb and 1 March. You can come to just one or all three.

To join this small, fun and informative social gathering simply CLICK HERE and order your burger and beer and pick the coach that best fits your coaching experience and aspirations: Mini and Kiwi, Kwik, Secondary and Open Grade.  These sessions are free of charge however if you would like a burger and beer the cost is $12, a burger $8, or a beer $4. There are beef, chicken and vegetarian options. Group sizes are capped at 8-10 participants.  For a flier CLICK HERE

CAPS 15s, CAPS 18s and CONNECT
There are three programs commencing late January which are athlete user pays programs.  The CAPs 15s and 18s programs are designed for 60 of our most talented athletes across the 15s and 18s space.  The Connect Program is open to any U15 hockey player within the Wellington region.   

The coach development opportunity is largely an on-the-turf opportunity, but with some off-the turf opportunities to sit in on the Trainer’s pre and post-session discussions.  
The target coach audience for the programs are as follows:

U15s CAPs program – Kwik Sticks P1 & P2 coaches & Secondary School P1 & P2 Coaches

  • U18s CAPs program – Secondary P1 & P2 coaches & Open Grade Coaches
