International Hockey Convention
During the 2024 IIHF World Junior Championships, the Swedish Ice Hockey Association invites you to attend International Hockey Convention, a coaching symposium that aims to develop and prepare coaches for the future.
The coaching symposium will take place January 3-5, 2024 in Gothenburg, alongside the medal round of the IIHF tournament. The focus of the symposium will be on the developmental stages and the performance journey of professional hockey players.
Our guest speakers will guide participants through the complex world of player development. Together, we will explore the areas of psychology, physiology, and other hockey-specific domains. All presentations will be conducted in English, and there will be two pathways to choose from. One for team coaches and one for goalie coaches.
Registration will open in late-September. Keep an eye open on http://www.swehockey.se and SIHA’s social media accounts.
