Coaching Symposium

 

Saturday, October 4 | 8AM | TD Garden

Join the Boston Bruins and USA Hockey for the 2014-15 Boston Bruins Coaching Symposium taking place on Saturday, October 4 at TD Garden.

The Boston Bruins Coaching Symposium is a marquee event that offers USA Hockey certified coaches a valuable opportunity to learn from the very best. This event is free and is open to USA Hockey certified coaches and current amateur coaches. Last year's keynote speakers included Boston Bruins President Cam Neely, Head Coach Claude Julien, Assistant Coaches Doug Houda and Doug Jarvis, USA Hockey Regional Managers Roger Grillo & Ty Hennes, and USA Hockey's Senior Director, Kevin McLaughlin.

Speakers and timing for the 2014 Boston Bruins Coaching Symposium will be confirmed at a later date closer to the event. Watch a recap of last season's Coaching Symposium.

While attending the 2014 Boston Bruins Coaching Symposium, USA Hockey coaches can also earn their Level 2 and 3 certifications, or recertify a preexisting Level 3 certification by registering here and paying a $40 fee. Select 'CEP High Performance' under Clinic Level and MA as the State. Please note, Level 1 certifications will not be available at this year's Coaching Symposium.
