TheDrillBook: Game-changing Technology for Winnipeg’s Hockey Community
WINNIPEG – TheDrillBook and Hockey Winnipeg are proud to announce they will be continuing a partnership that
provides coaches, players, managers and parents across Manitoba access to game-changing technology and a mobile application.
TheDrillBook, which was tested by more than 5,000 teams last year, changes traditional approaches to coaching and
development, while revolutionizing the delivery of productive, innovative and fun practices. TheDrillBook is useful for
teams at all levels, from Initiation to Midget. Coaches are able to manage their teams, perform all scheduling and
managerial tasks, and significantly enhance the “development curve” for their players.
“TheDrillBook is a leader in youth sport development throughout North America, and Hockey Winnipeg is pleased to
be able to provide coaches, players and parents with access to its resources,” said Monte Miller, Executive Director ,
Hockey Winnipeg. “Providing the hockey community in Winnipeg with high quality resources can only have a positive
impact and help grow the game on all levels.”
Coaches can build and share video practice plans with the coaching staff, players and parents. There is also access
to an age-specific comprehensive and innovative drill database and delivery system, giving coaches the option to
build their own custom practice plans or choose a pre-built option. Coaches can also develop skills and tactics
specific to the needs of an individual player.
TheDrillBook offers three levels. The Gold version is $14.99 per month/per team, while other options are $9.99 per
month/per team, or free.
“Hockey Winnipeg is an outstanding and forward-thinking organization and they impact so many young boys and girls
in a positive way on so many levels. There are many success stories as a result of their hard work and commitment
to youth hockey in their communities, and we are very excited to partner with them on this project,” said Mark
Maloney, Chief Executive Officer of TheDrillBook.
Willie Desjardins, head coach of the Vancouver Canucks has included some of his favourite age- specific drills and
games into TheDrillBook database for coaches to access.
“It is great to see young players having so much fun working on their skills in creative games and drills. When players
enjoy what they are doing they typically thrive. TheDrillBook provides this type of information on a very unique Mobile
App to help coaches work effectively with their teams without having to spend a bunch of time searching for ideas,”
