Metro mon épicier to present the 4th edition of the Rocket Hockey Tour

MINOR HOCKEY COACHES FROM ACROSS QUEBEC WILL BENEFIT FROM ROCKET STAFF EXPERTISE DURING AN ENTIRELY VIRTUAL FOURTH EDITION OF THE PROGRAM

The Laval Rocket and Metro mon épicier are proud to join forces to present the fourth edition of the Rocket Hockey Tour community initiative.

A 100% virtual event this year, the Rocket Hockey Tour presented by Metro mon épicier will allow coaches from across the province to sharpen their skills by learning from the Rocket coaching staff during four unique and interactive webinars.

In collaboration with Hockey Québec, professional development points (NCCP) will be distributed to all coaches who attend the trainings. This is another great reason to attend the 4 sessions! Several different topics will be covered and each of them will also end with a question and answer session with the coaches. At the very end of the Rocket Tour, you will receive an e-mail from Hockey Québec specifying the number of points that have been attributed to you. Laval Rocket official arena host Olivier Duclos will act as a moderator for each training and as the official sponsor, Metro mon épicier will have many surprises in store for participants.
“Since the team’s inaugural season in Laval, the Rocket have been proud to support the next generation of hockey players and encourage the young kids in their athletic development. While this year comes with its fair share of challenges, we are excited to continue to work with our local minor hockey associations by offering them a completely reinvented program,” said Sébastien Vaillant, Rocket Director, Marketing and Events. “Coaches at the minor hockey league level play a crucial role in the development of young players on and off the ice. Our own coaches are eager to meet them.”

In the first three editions, the Rocket Hockey Tour allowed several young players to benefit from the expertise of players on the team such as Alex Belzile, Cale Fleury, Jake Evans and Cayden Primeau, among others. This year, the coaches will benefit directly from the program. This initiative aims to strengthen the team’s relationship with minor hockey associations in the province.
