Slavomír Lener, director of sports section of CIHA (which was formed few months ago), introduced first phase of his new development program of hockey youth during Ivan Hlinka Tournament in Břeclav at special meeting of 75 youth coaches from top czech leagues of all categories. They were given new methodical materials made by CIHA, which they should include to their training process and it will be constantly inspected by Lener and his people from sports section of CIHA. Also more such education meetings will be held in the future. This first move was named "Ten tips how to help czech hockey" and key points of this whole strategy are:

1. Training of dynamics and acceleration
2. Push to the opponent's net
3. Individual training of technique
4. Transition from defense to offense - speed, timeliness, active involvement of defenseman
5. Transition from offense to defense - immediate forechecking with all 5 players
6. Stick penalties
7. Coaching - development of individuality
8. Communication
9. Training off the ice - every day
10. School, other duties

Hopefully this should be start of the new chapter in czech youth hockey and our longterm comeback where we belong.
