About

EDUCATION | COLLABORATION | CONNECTION | DISCOVERY

Our goal at The Hockey Think Tank is to provide a platform for connecting people that are passionate about the game of hockey.  Through content and events, both expert and member driven, we provide a unique opportunity for dedicated coaches, players, and parents to gain and share hockey knowledge.

The game of hockey has given all of us here at The Think Tank so much.  This site is our way of giving back to the game.  We will offer our members paid premium content through webinars and other premium content, but our main focus is on giving all those in the hockey community the opportunity to better themselves and help us to grow the game.

Become a member TODAY and gain access to our expert Teaching Videos, Drill Club, Blogs, and other exciting content.  Welcome to The Hockey Think Tank Community!
