Calgary Hockey Development
Since 1995, Calgary Hockey Development (CHD) has provided the hockey communities in and around Calgary with innovative programs and services designed to organize, educate and inspire grassroots players, parents and coaches. CHD is a pioneering company in the hockey consulting field and has grown in size from an original staff of one to a full time staff of 20. The CHD Hockey Operations staff consists of eleven full time professional coaches who provide hockey players, parents and coaches with Specialty Clinics, Coaching Certification Clinics, Personal Mentoring Sessions, Summer Hockey School and Spring/Summer High Performance Programs both on and off the ice. The CHD coaches also deliver, on a daily basis, specialized instruction in Coaching & Leadership, On-Ice Skills and Strength & Conditioning Training to the student athletes in Grades 7-12 at the National Sport Academy.
CHD was founded on the principles of inspiring ethics and coaching character when working with young athletes, coaches and parents. As indicated in the CHD Mission Statement, it is our goal:
To inspire passion for the game of hockey while developing character for the game of life!
