A special coaching series is coming to Trail that offers local athletes a chance to skate alongside Olympians from Canada’s National Women’s Hockey Team on Nov. 9.

The Teck Coaching Series will welcome Olympic gold-medal winning Head Coach Daniele Savageau and Olympic Team veteran player Catherine Ward to Trail next Sunday for a coaches breakfast and seminar at the River Belle followed by an on-ice session at 11 a.m. in the Cominco Arena.

The 9 a.m. breakfast session is open to all interested coaches from any sport or dance.

Savageau and Ward will share their past experiences and discuss the importance of coaching in all youth sport.

The former Team Canada coach will then lead the on-ice session that will teach young players skills and stress the importance of teamwork. The series invites hockey players aged 10-12 to register.

Both sessions are free, but interested coaches and players must register by Tuesday, and is based on a first come-first served basis.
