A Message from Dennis Chighisola
If you’re unfamiliar with membership sites, these are sites with specific areas for members. Generally, members pay a fee to join the site, and to have access to high level information. In the case of this site, CoachChic.com, the fee is monthly, and it’s extremely reasonable.
This site actually was started in October of 2008, as a labor of love. Yes, I love hockey, I love dealing with hockey people, and I especially love solving hockey problems. By 2008 I’d already head coached numerous youth teams, a high school team, Juniors, and a college team, and I’d already helped quite a few clinic and hockey school students on to great college and even NHL careers.
All those high level jobs aren’t meant to dismiss the most fun I had, running one of the most popular Learn-to-skate and Learn-to-play programs in the US’s New England-area, as well as years of adult beginner clinics. I mean they were fun, because all my tips, tricks and shortcuts tend to work miracles with beginners.
As for this site, it’s really evolved — containing three main categories in the start, with those areas now divided into almost thirty sub-sections. Trust me, that the information I supply in one main category can help players develop “Highlight Reel Skills”. In yet another, my aim is to get members “Thinking the Game” on a very high level. Then, because I just couldn’t be hemmed in to the physical and mental sides of our game, I initiated another section covering “Special Topics”.
Those categories — and the near-700 current posts — also cater to wide audiences. In many of them I share advice with parents of players from beginner through at least the high school level. In yet others, I’m helping adult hockey players over the humps they so often face. Then, truth be told, I love sharing ideas with my fellow coaches.
Yet another love of mine is audio-visual work. I got into coaching with video around 1980, and I shortly after started producing my own training films. And, in more recent years, I’ve also mixed some audio programs within many site posts.
I said earlier that I enjoy solving hockey problems, something that an awful lot of competitors fail to do. I’m serious about that, which brings me to a so-called “tag line” you’ll see me refer to often…
WHAT + HOW = Real RESULTS!
In essence, I’m suggesting that it’s easy to find the WHAT of a given skill or tactic elsewhere — just search the Net and you’ll find all sorts of free ideas on “what” a great skating stride looks like, or scan a site like YouTube to see “what” a great drill or fancy tactic looks like.
What most of those don’t show you is the HOW of getting yourself, your youngster or your team to execute like the players in those videos. And that brought me to the realization that it’s knowing both the What plus the How that ultimately gets you the Real RESULTS.
Want to hear more on this? Let me tell you about it in the audio program below…
