In Pursuit of Technical Director (2010)
AMHA engaged in communications with other minor hockey organizations throughout the province to explore best practices for hiring a Technical Director. The AMHA created a sub-committee to review the ideas and move forward with ideas most practical for our association. After submissions, interviews were held, an offer made and a contract was signed. On April 1, 2011, AMHA hired Brad Peddle of the St. FX X-Men Hockey Program as it first ever technical director.
As a result of coach consultation conducted in the 2010 season and subsequent action plan implementation it was felt that there is a strong desire to have a dedicated individual or group to support the education, growth, development and evaluation of our coaches and players through a technical director. This Partnership with X-Men Hockey will be responsible for revamping the team selection process, organizing development weekend, consult with the coaching coordinator for coach selection criteria, player and coach development both on and off ice. The Technical Director will work in concert with the many volunteers within our organization including, and not limited to practice, games and skill sessions.
