Join the Community of Hockey Instructors
Similar to associations, there are several groups available for hockey instructors that work to provide support in this field. These groups allow professionals to share experiences and insights with like-minded colleagues in what often becomes an all-inclusive community. These groups often meet either online or in real life, and sometimes both, depending on location and the type of group. There are many groups available to join for free on social media such as Facebook, or through specific groups that you can search and join, sharing resources and friendships. Websites such as Meetup allow you to search for hockey instructor meetups in your area, allowing coaches to come together in one place. As with associations, hockey instructor communities provide a less formal method of congregating and supporting one another as professionals.
