Hockey Manitoba and LTAD

  • Mentor our volunteer grassroots coaches

  • Develop specialty clinics to take to all communities so coaches can learn at home

  • Develop resources that coaches can use as reference and personal development

Philosophy of the breakfast club
Philosophy of the Breakfast Club

  • Make use of idle ice and be inclusive.

  • Provide an opportunity for players to get “extra ice” time in a structured way and thus improve their skills

  • Repetition, using a variety of drills will improve game confidence

  • Provide an opportunity to mentor coaches and model good ice management

Long term athlete development
Long Term Athlete Development

  • Experts say it takes close to 10,000 repetitions to master a skill!!

  • Poor training of hockey skills ages 6-16 can never be fully recovered

  • “Windows” for development occur and ages 9-12 is very important for acquiring skills

Our goals
Our Goals

  • Provide an opportunity for players to improve their skills through quality drills

  • Model good practice techniques and activities to coaches who attend

  • Create drills specific to the needs of the players but challenge all.

  • Stress this is voluntary, we do not pressure or recruit kids to come.

  • Free of charge where possible

Types of drills

Breakfast club dvds

  • Hockey Manitoba produced 2 DVDs with over 100 drills and progressions which emphasize puck control drills. Most of these drills are on the CMHA web site.

  • It can be used in a Breakfast Club format or can be incorporated into practices

  • You can adapt and modify for your team


  • Players will improve their skating and puck handling skills

  • Coaches taking the extra ice time to correct errors and suggesting ways to improve their game

  • Players will develop more confidence in games to be creative with the puck

On ice experience

Never too late to do skills

Players are deficient in many areas

They appreciate learning new things

We need to teach these skills at a younger age

Practices are the key: repetition for motor skill memory

We shouldn’t criticize coaches, we need to help them

On Ice Experience



  • Volunteer coaches: big commitment. The more kids, the more help needed

  • Carberry “Breakfast Club “coordinator- Mike Donais;

  • Number of kids initially; set age/number limit? A certain skill level is needed for drills. Number dependant will separate kids into age categories i.e.- Novice/Atom and PeeWee/Bantum, No one will be turned away;

  • Supervision needs to be done until all kids leave;

  • School liaison to be sure they are there on time;

  • Discipline: clear to parents that this is not a practice and behavior problems will not be tolerated;

  • Town/ municipal council and rink manager: free ice;

  • Corporate and local sponsorship initiatives; and

  • Support and train your on ice coaches (NCMP clinic, visitation to see the structure).
