& CULTURE meet.
Hockey Without Borders is a registered non-profit organization that connects coaches to partner organizations in non-traditional hockey markets worldwide.
Since 2011 Hockey Without Borders has connected over 120 qualified coaches with communities around the globe.
Our goal is to affect positive change in the lives of all participants, both on and off the ice.
By living abroad in these non-traditional hockey communities, our coaches experience intercultural learning which develops knowledge, leadership, communication techniques, and life skills that are integral to becoming a better coach and an engaged citizen.
HOW IT WORKS
Coaches engage in season-long or week-long camp placements, as well as hockey clinics, with grassroots hockey communities around the world. Our programs aim to help develop and coach minor hockey programs in non-traditional and grassroots hockey communities.
In collaboration with local partners, HWB assesses a community’s needs and aspirations to build a framework to meet short and long-term hockey-related objectives. Our coaches support the implementation of the framework during their stay.
Past placements countries include: Serbia, Lithuania, Kyrgyzstan, India, Bosnia, Greece, Hungary, and the Czech Republic.
