The premise of building the Hockey Think Tank was centered around one word:
It was about building a community of passionate hockey people that wanted to share ideas, learn from each other, and make a positive impact on the hockey world.
That has been the mission of the Hockey Think Tank from the beginning. Whether you were a high level coach or a parent just introduced to the game, we wanted to provide you a place to go where you could connect with others and become more informed about the greatest game on the planet.
And what started as a couple guys talking hockey has turned into something amazing with the capacity to reach so many more people within the game.
We have some of the best followers in the world. Just so many incredible people that are looking for ways to make a positive difference for the kids and families in their own communities. And while we have certainly enjoyed the back and forth feedback between us and yourselves, we’re taking things to the next level and want to connect all you passionate hockey people with each other.
So our next big project that we’ve rolled out today is the creation of the Hockey Think Tank Parent and Coach Communities. They will be open and inclusive platforms where either as a parent or a coach you can go to share ideas, ask questions, and get informed to help yours and your kids’ hockey journeys.
Because who better to connect with than the people who are in the same foxhole as yourself!
We will moderate discussions on our end, do live Q&A video chats, bring on special guests, and continue to provide information from our end. But this will be a great medium for user lead discussion and sharing of information!
Oh, and one more BIG thing.
These communities are FREE! We’ve decided to use Facebook as the platform, since most of you are on it and the site provides all of the back-end essentials for building this type of community as well.
Here are the sites below…there’s information on there to get us all started. We look forward to interacting with you even more today and beyond!!
