What is ProSmart Hockey?

The ProSmart Hockey Learning System connects all volunteer coaches, parents and players to ONE online resource. Working closely alongside the NHL Alumni Association, ProSmart has developed a platform full of personalized Instructional videos, interactive coaching tools and so much more!


Who is ProSmart Hockey?

ProSmart Hockey has been developed by current and former Hockey professionals, working alongside technology experts. Our team includes Hayley Wickenheiser, Wendel Clark, and Scott Hartnell, just to name a few.


Why would your association use ProSmart?

ProSmart intimately understands the year after year challenges associations face in finding and encouraging, let alone training, volunteer coaches.

Our standardized resource means:

  • Every coach in every division is on the same page, at the same time supported by professional coaching instruction.
  • Every player is being introduced to the core fundamentals in the same way at the same time, regardless of the individual team they are on. Associations therefore, have confidence each player is progressing through their hockey education in the same manner and pace.
  • Every parent has transparency and confidence, regardless of the volunteer coach they have that season, that their child will receive the same instruction and value as every other player.
  • No longer are coach coordinators mired in the redundant process of building and deploying practice plans and following up on their use. ProSmart has already created every single practice plan for all divisions. Their valuable time is spent mentoring and supporting real time coaching challenges.
  • Associations provide a massive "value add" to the member families they serve through the coaching support as well as the family focused content.


How much does it cost?

Our goal is to give every hockey family access to this world-class learning system for FREE! ProSmart has been working very hard with some amazing national and regional sponsors who are covering the cost. Their generosity ensures minor hockey associations and minor hockey families receive access at no charge.


Where does the curriculum come from?

The ProSmart curriculum follows Hockey Canada’s Skill Development Program. In addition, we have taken some inspiration from current and past NHL professionals on what works best for them. Our content is fully endorsed by the NHL Alumni Association, but not Hockey Canada.


Is ProSmart safe?

Online safety, especially for kids, is paramount to us. ProSmart is dedicated to making sure that our platform complies with the strongest online safety regulations available. We do not collect or distribute anyone's private information.

I’m a business owner. How do I sponsor my local association?
