By Spencer Montgomery – Youth Hockey Coordinator, Chicago Blackhawks
The Chicago Blackhawks have partnered with Ice Hockey Systems to launch the Chicago Blackhawks Coaches Club (CBCC), which offers coaches over 400 comprehensive animated drills and practice plans via computer, tablet or smart phone.
CBCC membership benefits include exclusive tips from the Blackhawks coaching staff, behind-the-scenes videos of the Blackhawks practices and locker rooms and monthly Blackhawks ticket giveaways. Coaching videos will feature Head Coach Joel Quenneville, Assistant Coaches Mike Kitchen and Kevin Dineen, Goaltending Coach Jimmy Waite and Blackhawks Hall of Famer Denis Savard, in addition to guest college and youth hockey coaches; Blackhawks Strength and Conditioning Coach Paul Goodman will provide off-ice training tips. Additionally, members can submit questions to the Blackhawks coaching staff online via the Coaches Blog.
Proceeds from the membership will benefit the Eddie Olczyk Award, which offers funding to youth hockey players in Illinois who may not have the means to play otherwise. To become a member of the CBCC, please visit www.chicagoblackhawks.com/coachesclub
