Tim Hortons and Ottawa Senators Present the 4th Annual Tim Hortons Coaches Clinic

OTTAWA, ONTARIO—-(CCNMatthews – Oct. 13, 2006) - The Ottawa Senators today announced the return of the 4th annual Tim Hortons Coaches Clinic to be held at Scotiabank Place on Saturday, Nov. 4 starting 8:00 a.m.

Coaches from the Ottawa District Hockey Association (ODHA), Ottawa District Women's Hockey Association (ODWHA), and Hockey Outaouais are invited to take part in this free clinic as experts within the game discuss relevant issues surrounding coaching and player skill development.

“This year’s Tim Hortons Coaches Clinic promises to be another great success. This year’s agenda is filled with new ideas and tools for coaches to take away with them and use through out their season,” said Senators chief operating officer, Cyril Leeder. “The Ottawa Senators Hockey Club has an excellent partnership with Tim Hortons and proud to be working in co-operation to support the development of our local coaches and minor hockey associations throughout our region.”

“Tim Hortons of Ottawa is a long time supporter of over 1,900 Timbits Minor Hockey players in the Ottawa area. This program provides the foundation for future learning, skill development and most of all fun,” said Bill Kitchen, a local Tim Hortons storeowner. “Tim Hortons is committed to the development of thousands of coaches across Canada through the NHL teams and coaching clinics offered in Calgary, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver and Ottawa.”

Each coach attending the Tim Hortons Coaches Clinic will receive a Hockey Canada Coaches Club one-year membership courtesy of Tim Hortons and the Ottawa Senators, coach’s practice planner courtesy of the Ottawa Citizen, a Tim Hortons Coaches Clinic handbook and a “buy one, get one free” ticket voucher that may be redeemed for tickets to an upcoming Ottawa Senators home game.

Coaches will be able to take away with them information on goaltending, skating, stick handling, half ice practices and many other topics surrounding the game.

Over the past three years, more than 2,300 coaches have participated in the Tim Hortons Coaches Clinic at Scotiabank Place. For more information, testimonials from last year's clinic, or to register for this year's clinic, coaches are encouraged to visit the Ottawa Senators website (www.ottawasenators.com).
