Stickwise are very selective when it comes to inviting coaches to the camps. Great players don’t always make great coaches. Only coaches with the ability to deliver the Stickwise ethos of “keeping hockey fun” are employed to coach at our camps. Stickwise coaches are not just great players and even better coaches, they are also people who put the players needs and requirements before their own. All of the coaches love hockey, love working with children and love coaching.
