Hockey Diagrammer HTML5
The platform that makes any hockey coach’s life easier
Draw Once. Save Forever.
The Hockey Coaching Challenge Summarized
Coaching involves directing the team during practices and games while motivating and providing guidance. In order to do so, hockey coaches apply drills and effective practice plans. These are essential in having a good field team. However, drills also require preliminary work in order to think of the proper strategies to transmit to the team.
Coaches often use chalkboards and redraw their drills or write out their diagrams by hand on scraps of paper. This is time-consuming, inefficient and difficult to share. It may also affect the quality of the practices as they have no record of the previous plans.
Behind the App
Founded in 2006, Hockey Coaching envisioned a more efficient future for coaches, teams, and people involved in hockey. They understood the challenges that the whole organizational process had in creating and communicating strategies on skill development. Hockey Coaching aimed at helping coaches create diagrams faster and better, in order to facilitate:
- Team Management
- Drills and Practices
