In just a moment, I'm gonna show you how to quickly and easily propel your hockey team to winning more games than you ever thought possible.
(and make your role as a coach 100 times easier and more enjoyable than it’s ever been before)
Since 2005, over 2,451 busy Hockey coaches just like you have tapped into the “Insider Secrets” that sent their teams skyrocketing to the top of the standings...
With very little time, and almost no effort.
It doesn't matter how little (or how much) experience you have as a Hockey coach... or how poorly your team is playing right now...
You can instantly
start blowing your competition off the ice with explosive skating,
laser-guided puck control, and a relentless offensive attack.
(even if your players are small, slow or unathletic)
I know it sounds a bit crazy... maybe even a little hard to believe.
So before we go any further, lemme show you the specific kinds of improvements I’m talking about...

Ross was struggling to design practices that engaged his players and
kept them working hard. Here's what he had to say after trying out my
"Your system showed me how much time to allow for different drills so I could keep the interest of the kids.

Merx is the head coach of the Surrey Female Atom Falcons. Faced with
limited ice time and no coaching experience... she decided to give my
hockey coaching system a try... with staggering results!
Here's how she describes it in her own words:
"We Won The League Championship!"*
"Your system was easy to follow and helped organize my whole season. By having a plan I was able to utilize all the ice time to have a productive and effective practice.

"A Dramatic Improvement
From Last Year"*
year, we went .500, but this year, with your help, we finished the
season with a recordof 30-19-4! Your drills helped develop the skills
the kids needed to improve and it did not take long at all to prepare
for each practice.
There was a dramatic improvement from last year,
because each activity had designated time-frames, and having it written
out allowed for smoother transition from one drill to the next.

And that's just a tiny sample
of the coaches who have tried out my hockey coaching system and seen
immediate, dramatic results (look to the right to see a few more).
So What’s Their Secret?
What do these coaches know that you don’t?
The fact is... most rookie coaches (as well as many "vets") murder their chances of success before they even step onto the ice.
Because they completely miss the one simple strategy that truly creates a high performance hockey team:
The RIGHT Way!
If you've ever watched a top level junior hockey or college team practice... you've already seen this principle in action.
The drills are fun... competitive... and follow a natural skill progression… The entire team is on the same page, and sticks to a precise practice schedule.
All your players get detailed instruction on hockey fundamentals... AND the chance to go head-to-head against their teammates in game situation drills.
Each activity flows smoothly from one to another… new concepts are grasped immediately…
And your team gets instantly “programmed” with every skill, tactic and play...
So when it comes to game time, YOUR kids are better trained, better prepared, and better coached… and they clobber your competition while you sit back and enjoy the moment.
But here's the thing.
If effective practice planning was easy, then every Tom, Dick and Harry would be coaching a championship caliber team.
The fact is... practice planning ain't easy. You have a limited amount of ice time to work with and a wide range of skill levels on your team.
Coming up with fresh, new drills and organizing them into step by step plan is complex, time consuming, and nerve-racking.
But it doesn't have to be...
Because I've prepared a very special package just for you...
And if you act today, you can get your hands my championship-proven stash of

"A Perfect Guide To Coaching"*
Hockey Skills and Practice Plans Ebook is a perfect guide to coaching.
It has helped me expand my repetoire of drills by allowing me to see
coaching from a different professional perspective. As a
Powerskating-for-Hockey coach, I have recommended Matt's website to
many of my instrctors. I truely recommend the ebook to all coaches,
experienced or not there is something in there for everyone - even if
you aren't behind the bench!"
Thanks again Matt,
"There Were Actually FUN Drills Here"*
ease of finding "new" drills was the BEST part! The kids knew right
away that I had some sort of a new "drill book" because they asked "OK,
where did you get this drill from? Its a good one!" I was honest and I
told them! There were actually FUN drills here.
cut my practice planning down by a good 2 hours. I am meticulous in
planning a good practice. I lay about 6-7 books out and go through each
one for what I am specifically looking for. Its very time consuming!
new Hockey Drill & Practice Plans ebook lays everything right there
out in front of you so that I did not need all of those 6-7 books! I
was so amazed!
would definitely reccommend this Hockey Drills & Practice Plans
ebook to other coaches. It frees up so much more of your time so that
you can spend more of your "so called hockey time" searching the web
for other ideas of things to do with your team."
Oswego, New York
First Year Coach Says...*
liked the pre made practice plans and great drills. It helped me to
break up the time appropriately throughout the ice slot when putting
together my own pratice. It was my first year as coach and many of the
players first year of hockey. Our record was roughly .500 but we as
coaches saw a significant improvement in the individual players but
more importantly in them playing as a team. I would recomend it to
other coaches. It provides fresh and new ideas and I really like the on
going updates and new ideas. I also like the ideas gathered and shared
from the other coaches."
